Exploring the Unknown...


Been working on this piece for the past couple nights, I like it a lot. I liked it a lot more before I resized it though, now it just.. I dunno. It's still looks good, but not the same o_O. I blame the asteroids. But anyway, not much to say about this piece, i've been trying to work on my quality and just trying to get better and such, so I would say this is kind of a practice piece. I wanted to do a lot more with it, I had a bunch of cool ideas, but I have no graphics tablet so painting is kind of.. difficult at the moment.

I've been trying to learn 3dsm as well so I can finally make my own ships and other things as well, but man, it's pretty tough to find a decent tutorial or guide for it. I kinda feel bad for wearing that shuttle out so much, but it's all I have. :( Anyway hope some people like this, I think it looks pretty cool.

Thanks for looking! :)

Edit: Now that's more like it, I think it looks better now. Also changed the title, I like that better too. :)

I like how the ringed planet is faded in the background. It makes it feel "unknown" and fits very well with the title :] brilliant

Good luck with 3DSM. It's a real pain to learn, but it's one of the best. Just try not to pull your hair out. Looking forward to more like this.

Yeah i've been putting it off just because it's so difficult when your a beginner at it, but hopefully I can get the hang of it. Thanks for the comment :)

Nice I like it. The blue sun is awesome my only tiny tiny nibble of a critique is that the shuttle is a bit skint on details, looks to smooth, maybe add some lines or dirt or pannels

Dude it totally roxxor. But yeah i know what you mean about something being off. To be honest i thinks it the shuttle. It looks to me like its made out of paper. But then again.... its still better than something I can model yet. You my sword in the stump image? Thats my current modeling skill. Hmm... actually... i have an idea! I'll drop you a note soon as i can verify whether or not its wise :D peace out till then!

cool you still need practice, I see. Your works already look highest level to me actually :D

It's awesome as usual, except for the shuttle and astronaut - they are to big. But the others already told you about that :P

I like the mood and color balance you have here. The planet & asteroid textures are good also!

As for crits..The shuttle and astronaut look a bit too much 2d compared to the rest of the piece and their sizing is out of proportion. You should either work on them more or delete them. This picture works well without them too.

Nice piece! I'd wanted to see a bit more high quality starscape tho :). Other things that's a bit off here is the perspective on things. When you first glance at the piece you notice how HUGE the astronaut seems and the ship is also gigantic. That might not be the case but it's the way I see it anywas, and I'm sure more with me will.
It's hard to get things in sci-fi pieces the way you want them in terms of perspective, I know.

Its a good atmosphere and smooth colorblending. I wish the back planet was more lit up that it is, looks dead now =).

It's a good piece mate, keep it up!

Stock? No, the only stock I used for this was the shuttle and astronaut. I edited the piece, should look a little better now. ;)

Yeh the shuttle does look a little wierd... I have to kinda try hard to make it fit when I look at it... but other than that I'm loving this scene man, the depth you put in is nice and it seems very open, alos has sort of an underwater feel, very calm and enjoyable, good stuff dude :thumbsup: ;)

I think this would look much more dynamic without the shuttle. But if you wanna keep it you should try to move a bit onto the bigger planet. Now one easily gets the sense of a shuttle as big as a planet. :D

Thanks for the advice man, I actually thought of that while I was making it the first time around, but never tried it.

love it man. the planets again are fucking awesome, just flawless (where do you get your textures btw?). other than the already stated, the only thing i dont like about it is that it feels to cluttered. i would space it out a bit, dont add or remove anything just shrink everything a bit to add more space.

but yea, again you rock. another brilliant work :D

Wow really good, but that shuttle looks so awkward. How do you get that cool "filter" or overlay on that pic it makes it look real nice.
(Btw, Poor guys, what is the shuttle doin aall the way out there!)

The only problem with the shuttle, is that the lighting and blueish haze gives the impression that it is much larger, and further away than it is. ( the lighting on that isn't much different to that of the far planet, in terms of colour and shadow )

Everything else all looks great though, I like the planets, and can't see much wrong with the asteriods :)
