Nice, but why didn't you use a trans. gradient to fade out the left-most planet? That takes away from the piece.

Now, for my spacescape rating system (As seen here):

Stars: N/A (15/35) - Every spacescape needs stars.

Clouds/nebulae: 17/25 - Nebulae are a little packed and un-natural.

Planets: 22/40 - minus 13 points on 1st planet's texture and glow, minus 5 on the lack of trans. gradient on the left planet.

54/100.

Nobody learns from just saying, "Nice job."

As requested,

here are some changes.

Still, you didnt use a transparent gradient on the moon thing. I mean like this (click for full-size):

Stars: 28/35 (+13)

Clouds/nebulae: 22/25 - Nebulae are a little packed and un-natural. (+5)

Planets: 30/40 - Nice. Good improvement. (+8)

Others: -4 - The black horizontal border is not so good.

76/100. (+22)

My newest piece:

JOYSTICK:

Ahh.

csm, i still dont under stand what your talking about with the transparent gradient and it makes me feel like a noob :(

the moon is supposed to be in front so i dont see why it should have a gradient on the right portion of it.

Anywho,

in regards to your controller piece,

Pros: The screen in the middle is a NICE touch, the buttons look pretty good as well and the color has a nice texture if you will.

Cons: Im not sure how you were intending to make the actual joysticks Ps3 and XBox like joysticks but i feel like they are to "arcade" for the controller.

The controller almost looks like a PS3 controller without the joysticks.

Great Idea and Concept.

Joysticks and Left side Keypad need improvment.

7.5\10

@csm775, love the controller. although it has a few mistakes, like the actual red joysticks, and the buttons need a few improvements. but overall, 8/10, because i could never even attempt to make such a thing.

@Mayor_McSteeze, very nice. i LOVE the blue planets texture. it really makes it stand out from the other planet. and the smaller one, pretty good, but not as good as the bigger planet. you might need to feather the edges, and the light, its a tad too big. overall, a 6/10. but please know that your bigger planets texture is brilliant, it gives it a real planet feel to it.

and my little space scene, please rate?

Good texture on the planet, and the background is pretty good, too (although one of the nebulae is cut pretty badly. Top left, a little towards the centre).

:D very nice texture. It would look a bit nicer with a rounder shadow on the planet, the one you've got kinda makes it look a bit flat, and try adding a few more stars- the background looks a bit plain. 8/10 stars :D

Here is my latest piece, inspired by the Halo video game.

Whoa! That's really nice! I really don't understand how people make objects look glassy/crystal like. The background

goes perfect. But the top of the thing, theres the purple fog thing, I think it takes most of the attention to it, so I

think you could make it less visible. overall, 8/10. marvelous

She has magical powers. I like the texture on your planet. Very nice piece. You should add some more stuff to it.

@ Falken, AWESOME !!! Wow what a cool pic. I love it. Great idea!

@ Barbieq, Beautiful piece Barbieq ! Love the colors and glassiness. So pretty. :D

This spacescape was inspired by a piece by Peter Pawn.

That is quite an undertaking! Love to see it.

Possum that is the most amazing image! Peter Pawn's idea was brilliant & I love what you have done with it.

The reflections & the colours are just spot on.

We are supposed to score each other? Ok, I give you 10/10 because it is so great.

The obelisk scene looks pretty nice! When I try to press your image, it's taking me a long time to load, and

I still haven't looked at it full size. But I do see the mirror, and I think you did a really

good job at producing the reflection effect. But the background, although it does give it a

nice space feel, I think you used to many colours, or too many gases. But the bigger planet's

texture does look neat. But once again, I will try to look at it full size. overall, 7.6/10.

next, a little space scene. I was trying to go a whole 'nother way, but then I got this.

I tried to make it better by adding a small planet. rate?

I like the fact that the planet isn't the most up front part of the piece it's just kind of a side note in the back.

It really lets the otehr parts stand out.

I don't like the part of the cloud (or what ever you wanna call it) thats is totally white i think it takes away from the piece.

But otherwise good job :)
