Image Umbrella: Realistic Images

@HF Cars, The planet is blurry and its really distracting from the whole piece.

Also, the Red lines through the planet don't work very well in my opinion.

On the good side, the rings on the planet look fantastic! and the spacey nebula also looks very good but i dont like the color choice IMO.

@ Mayor_McSteeze:

I know, I just wanted to add more effects to it!

Nice job on the rain piece! Looks like it is raining at the beach. Just like how it did on my last vacation. :(

:lol: :lol:

I don't know if I should say it's pretty or it's awesome!

Fantastic texture on the planet & great choice of colour. Maybe a few too many bright stars too close to the planet? I dunno. You do these space things so well.

Very nice! the reflected light on the texture surface on the bottom right is fantastic! very very nice, the extra bright stars do take away from realism, but heck, this looks more like a fantasy image to me anyway, which is spectacular in its own right.

Thanks :D

As for the stars, there's sort of a hidden meaning to my picture, the planet has the same colours as a colour wheel and the stars can be seen as little paint splotches, it's sort of like a little colour palette floating through space. :wink:

@barbieq, I like the jewel piece!

The border around the jewel looks really nice and gold like.

Background rocks too :D

How about this new spacescape of mine? ( I know it comes no where close to rivaling falken's but i though i would give it a try)

Any sugestions are greatly welcome because im still looking to fix this piece up :)

What is the blurry bit at the top & bottom of the planet? Needs a bit of AA there or lose it. Don't like the cross shaped star.

I do like the planet texture & the nebula (?) to the right. That is really well done. You are improving each time.

I believe the Blurry spot at the top left of the planet is supposed to be a sun glare if im correct?

(correct me if im wrong mayor.)

@Spin, yes thats right. Didn't turn out to well :lol:

On the whole the image is good just needs a tweak. Don't toss it because it is salvagable & worth it.

You can easily correct this if you still have the .pdn file. (I highly recommend saving the .pdn & again in another format such as .png or the horrible .jpg).

With the magic wand select the outside of the planet layer. Go to the layer(s) with the sun reflection & delete.

OJ glass is good at the top but the bottom really lets it down.

I still have the .pdn but the thing is when ever i erase the glow around the planet it leaves a dark spot in front of the planet which i think looks even worse (i think its because of the clouds needed to make the nebula.)

I could post a screenie if you need to see what i mean.

@ Barbieq, I think it is the best jeweled piece you have done to date. It's simply beautiful ! The background is stunning, the gold setting is intricate but not over done, but most of all the jewel is breathtaking. The light reflections you added make it shimmer. Beautiful !

@ Mayor, I think it looks really good. I agree, I don't like the large blurry cross shaped star. I think you could benefit from the star brush someone posted in the Custom Brushes mini thread. Still, I think it's pretty good. Nice texture on the planet, nice gaseous clouds, and a dense starfield. Keep up the good work. I think you have really improved in the past couple of weeks. I'm looking forward to seeing more stuff from you.

This is a piece I posted in my gallery a few days ago. I've been busy on a new project and didn't take the time to post it until now.

I must warn you, it's a very large piece. 1440 X 900 pix.

A wonderful image! Even these spiders look quite cute. I love the way the one is getting beamed up. Not sure that it's too comfortable with the idea judging by the look on it's face.

Brilliant textures too.
