Drydareelin's gallery [18/01/19 update] - 'Ultima Thule'

Recommended Posts

I love science-fiction scene.  I like your execution of concept.  Love, love the ring around the planet.  If you don't mind a bit of some critique - I think the planet's texture could use a bit more "depth" to it even though it's a gas planet, and something about the reflection of the person on the floor seem...off.

@welshblue Thank you! Glad to see you're active again, and not just a quick one-time visit!

@TrevorOutlaw Of course I don't mind critique, that's how you improve. I based my design off photos of Jupiter (hence the swirling spot) and although I added more depth to that particular area, I agree I could've done more overall. Maybe just a touch more contrast too?

Also the lighting on the floor seems off because I made it waaaay too opaque. Whoops. Thank you, I do appreciate it!

... and does what it says on the tin.  Takes you on a journey.

Awesome how you've got the illusion of distance spot on.  Really like the 'smokey' effect ... really adds atmosphere.

Stunning again

This is really an amazing piece from you @Drydareelin and I have to say it's possibly my fav:star:rite thus far :D.  I immediately thought of when looking over the side of the Queen Mary at sea at night B).

You got the whole subtlety thing going on with the lighting and the composition is balanced as.

@welshblue Thank you very much! I was trying to make a glass effect initially but it changed to more of a glass/dusty space as time went on.

@Pixey That was pretty much the idea I had in mind, glad I got the idea through. Thank you :D

@Rickhum Thanks man :) Lighting can be a nightmare at times, mind you.

@LionsDragon Thank you very much!

@lynxster4 Thank you :)

@Seerose Thank you :)

New image on the first page titled 'Kin'. This one is personal to me, and to see why I'd suggest reading the description I give.

Let me know what you guys think.

Very sorry for your loss Dryda. It is a beautiful tribute to your dad. 

You can see how proud he was of you at your graduation. He will always be a bright shining star watching over you.

@LionsDragon Thank you. It's been a tough new year but we're getting through it.

@Joshua Lamusga Hmm, if you're talking about the ones near the bottom of the image I tried to give the effect of them being much closer than the stars. Perhaps I didn't quite nail the perspective there...

@welshblue Thank you. It's nice to hear that it gets easier. I didn't really go for an all out "wow" effect with this image that I usually try and produce, but more of a personal one this time round.

@Seerose Thank you very much :)

@barbieq25 Oh he will be! I never really showed my family my pictures but my parents always used to like them.

@Pixey Thank you Pixey, and I know he will be.

@lynxster4 I'm glad I'm not alone going through this! It still doesn't feel like he's gone. Hopefully my image portrays that!
