@AFG: I love it, It's talent I'll never have...I think the sky should be a bit blue-er but that's just my opinion.

@yy10: It's not failed at all! It just seems like you put a lot of work into the dino, and then jut made a background in five minutes. work more on the background.

Anyone have comments about my newest piece? I havent done a great background, but I want to be completely happy with the chick first.

Love that baby chick, it is a ducks baby right? You did a very good job on the skin, and the legs are awesome as well, may be just replace the background with grass, some water..and a blue sky?

A spacescape :

yup! Its a duckling! And I like the spacescape, you used gravity for the space rock in the foreground, right? A few things, just my opinions: the space clouds seem too blue, maybe lighten them a bit? Also, the planets seem too detailed, for them to be in the background. Maybe blurthem a bit? But overall, amazing

did you make everything in that space scape :shock: it's pretty damn well good but the rocks in the foreground need some work like shadow-shading or lighting or something like that to make them a bit more realistic

@ emeraldcullen awesome duckling ! I can't wait to see the background you come up with. Maybe a barnyard scene?

@ Yellowman, I swear I didn't know you were working on another spacescape ! That is really awesome. I really like how you transition from the space into the atmosphere. The planet texture and lighting is really great. I do think the larger stars could use a little Gaussian blur, maybe a 1 or 2.

This is something I did this afternoon while watching the Colts game. Yea ! Go Colts !

Thanks to everyone for the feedback on the landscape :)

@ emeraldcullen : if the duckling is anything to go by i think you have plenty talent :)

@ Yellowman : love it , not sure where the large shadow on the main planet is coming from though :?:

@ Possum : love the intergalactic jellyfish there wonderful, im doing a rework of the landscape so you will know there are sheep i may throw a goose in too :)

@emeraldcullen, thanks, yes you are right the rocks and the mountains shape all been done with clouds then Gravity plugin and that was the main concern, the background (planet and space) actually was a ready image I just pasted behind.

@Axle, thanks man, and good idea, I think you are right they need shadow on the floor or on each other, is that what you mean? Good point I will study that.

@Possum Roadkill, :lol: my friend, I believe you, may be we were on same wave, BTW your image ( The Black Hole) is very nice I like those creatures very much, looks like they are so smart and never been swallowed by that dead star, just one thing, way the rays on the bottom left not as same direction as the star rays? Wonderful.

@A Fleeting Glimpse, thank you very much, the image below is the original I just added as a background, I think it looks better and showing that the source of the large shadow is coming from the moon, may be the moon is too close to the planet that's way there is some confusion.

Sorry, where i come from we call point of view POV to save time. Im sure you know what it means but basically the flow of the picture. You may know as point of perception (POP)?. Uhm, this can probably explain it better than me (link)

i've never been to 'in your periphary' so i have never heard those phrases ... no seriously i've never heard of reffering to them as POP & POV

@ Nemo : im wondering if you maybe thinking of point (of vision) - The object distance at which the eye is focused with the eye lens in a neutral or relaxed state.

There is also point (of fixation) -An established point on which the observer's eye is focused. :)

Like the new avi/sig combo... :)

@ yy10 : like the snowflake :)

@ YY10 ... nice snowflake. I'd like to know the steps you took in that 5 minutes. It looks great.

@ emeraldcullen ... nicely made chick. Is it smudge for his/ her coat or Ash's fur tutorial ? It looks great either way . The feet look great too.

@ YM ... awesome work again. I'm going Gravity mad trying to work out how you made the hills/ cliffs. Thanks, you always think of the best techniques for me to play with :wink:

@ Possum' ... wow. Great jellyfish, nice planets and great eyeris/ flower. You say my imagination is good ... maybe this image is more abstract as well as being realistic ? :P

My mix to some great images all the way back through the pages

A mix of Shipwreck Alley and Submarine

Perspective issues aside, that's a great compilation of wonderful images you've created there Welsh, great job!
