Image Umbrella: Realistic Images


Recommended Posts

Thank you all for your comments. I struggled with which direction to put the reflections because of the location of the light,lol,although I do have to agree,it would have looked better as RedBeard said. ;)

Found a photoshop tutorial on chrome spheres and decided to improve it by doing it in paint.net

Unfortunately, it doesn't work for other shapes, but it still looks cool...

No, Paint.NET is not spyware...but, installing it is an IQ test. ~BoltBait

Really nice spacescape! I'd give the foreground planet some (visible) curvature to give it some movement. As it is, it doesn't draw the eye any which way, so it looks out of place and distracting.

Also, (and you probably know this already) there is a visible seam-looking-thing on the glow from the stars that has the same issue.

 

Otherwise, I'd definitely put this spacescape up by Goonfella's space art!

@Barbieq25: Thank you very much ^^ The colours on this are really unique for me; everything else is either dramatic-white or blue :P

 

@pdnnoob: Thank you :) The foreground (or close-up) planet does have some curvature. Basically I just put an extremely large elliptical selection, then pressed delete. I probably should have made it smaller in that sense. if the mean the spikes from the stars, I know that are entirely unrealistic in proper space pictures but they are in every space photograph -(captured by the light refracting off the telescope frame)- and I actually think they improve the images, although maybe not for my art :) Thank you!

 

 

Edit: Some randomly large gap was between "pressed" and "delete"...

I think you misunderstood about the seam

If you look at the left side of the image, you can see where the glow looks cut-off:

Or maybe I'm just too picky...

I...never noticed that o.o

 

Okay, I've corrected it. Nicely spotted! It's still not perfect and that's really going to annoy me but thanks :)

Oh they are so delicate & beautiful! I love the shapes & the colours. They almost seem to glow. I can imagine these in a garden with the sun shining down on them to give them that glow. I like the way you have focused them too, A great job by all means. Serious eye candy :D

You guys never cease to amaze me...wow. just wow.

This is my most recent attempt at creating an earth-like planet from scratch. Biggest issue I'm having at the moment is clouds, so any tips in that area would be much appreciated.

The planet looks great to me too. Looks real! I like the glow & the shadow. If I'd have done a planet it would be the whole thing & no lighting at the top like you have which would have made it look pretty fake & lifeless. The way you have it is spot on. You have such a great eye for detail. Good on you.
