For Every Beginning... by Kaioshen For Every Beginning... by Kaioshen
...there is an end.

It seems like i've been doing this one forever. I'm trying to push myself to make better, more real space scenes. So far my spacescapes have looked "flat", so I hope this one has more depth. I really wanted to add a lot more detail, but i've been working on this for awhile and i'm getting pretty sick of seeing it. And also, I didn't want to put this one on hold, again, to get my Exotika piece done. :P

A big thanks to `hameed for his stock asteroid field [link] and space cloud [link]. I hate using other peoples work, but I was running short, and I have no idea how to brush.. good.

Thanks for checkin in, and looking at my work! Hope you all like it!


Edit:
Yep, I've been wanting to edit this piece for sometime now, but never actually did it until now. And I think it looks 10 times better than it did. I wanted to make the 'light source' seem like it was exploding, so I added my apophysis render, did some magic and boom (no pun intended :P).

I hope people still like it with all of the additions and changes. I know I do. :D



DD: Wow, thanks so much to =Sortvind for suggesting it, and to ^cosmosue for featuring it. Thanks a lot guys!


Edit 2: Just a little update on an old piece, mainly to change those ugly planet textures

If your talking about the script-style font, then I have no idea, and I lost all my fonts so I wouldn't be able to tell you anyway. The other font is called Trajan Pro

GREAT!

How you can make this image so smooth? Without those annoying gradient 'steps' of very similar but different colors/luminance...if you understand me=! :)

Thanks man. :) Yeah I know exactly what you mean. I usually get those all the time, but a good way to avoid them is to not use so many layer adjustments like levels, ect. And once you do it starts to create bands of colors and different things and it really destroys the image.

This is awesome by the way.
But also, when I looked at your other images, I don't see the flatness you are talking about. When I look at the images, it almost feels as if I am there myself, floating amongst the stars and planets, not as if someone slapped together some cool graphics and put it up for kicks.

But then again, you've been doing this a hell a lot longer than me (since I've never done it before anyways), so I s';pose my comment doesn't count for too much eh?

Anyways. Good job, love it, keep it up.

Well, your always more critical about your own work then everybody else, just because you can see the flaws that they can't. It's with everybody i'm sure..

And yes, your comment counts, everybody's does :P

Thanks man :D
