Image Umbrella: Realistic Images


Recommended Posts


Ps. The planet is opaque, i put stars on top of it. I'm still trying to solve it to make it look more realistic.

Check out my gallery - pg7 for some ideas on lighting planets. In this piece, the planets should be fairly dark (not a bright light source), and never lower the opacity of a planet. Work on the blue nebulae thing too. Its like its a blob thats blurred to put it plainly. Maybe think of some composition too?

I'm liking the gaseous texture on the planets though. Great job!

Merry Christmas

Decent for 2d, but you need more reflections and dimension for a more realistic piece.

But from the perspective, the shape looks fine, if a little flat.

Also when you fill it up, the liquid shouldn't go to the edge as it's held in by glass.

Nonetheless, gj.

@jerkfight---I like that pic :) Although I don't really agree with having stars in fron of the planet/making the planet transparent. Nevertheless, it's cool. I like the textures on those planets too.

@m2lucky--- Nice for a first try. However, the perspective is rather two-dimensional. The only way I could think of in order to fix that is to draw in the perspective. I can't really explain it. Try using a photo reference. Or you could look at my champagne glass that I made a while back. Perhaps that might explain the idea of perspective a bit better. :wink:


An attempt at glass: A glass paperweight :) The original without the swirly stuff is in my gallery.


^^^Looks better if clicked^^^^

three ships sailing over the horizon? some guy with snorkel gear riding a whales back? a guy stranded on an island holding up some funny sign. If you look at my gallery I did on page 1 an island floating in the sky for a different perspective view.

main suggestion ..... how about something anything at all to draw my attention into the scene.

Sometimes just a touch of some other contrast color in the water helps give that little bit of artistic tension.

is this daytime/or nighttime. if its day sun and reflections. or stars if night.

You've got a real nice start lets just see you push the envelope and take that baby to the extreme.

@stealthed: looks great and realistic, only should the egde between the sea and the sky be more of a gradient, and the sun is white. some objects would be nice too.


History repeats itself, because nobody was paying attention the first time.
