Image Umbrella: Realistic Images


Recommended Posts

@ Worldnewser, Awesome image ! There is an image button. It's the third one over from the text formatting. It looks like a little landscape with a green plus sign.

@ Falken. Wow ! That's just beautiful ! It looks like where I'm from. (That would be a little known planet called Earth) :lol:

@Possum Roadkill--oh hello, I didn't see that there. Thanks for the tip :)

@Falken--Brilliant piece! I like the starscape. I think the only thing I can reccomend is to tone down the clud layer on the planet. I think it's a bit too thick. Other than that, good work. Also, I like your sig :)

@ heavymetalcat: very nice, the edges do look aliased and jagged though, you could fix that up with boltbait's feather if you still have the pdn file saved, mabye you could even remake it in a year or two and have picked up some more tricks.

@Mayor Mcsteeze: I love version 1, your spacescapes are definitely improving quickly heres a tip though, when you have a picture with a big planet you shouldn't use as many stars, it tends to clutter the picture up and makes the planet look out of place. (By the way, very nice stars, they look a lot like my own :smiley-wink:)

@heavymetalcat--Welcome to PdN! Nice effort. Much better than my first submission (which was an ugly puke green abstract). A bit of anti-aliasing is in order, but it's a good concept. You'll definitely get better as you go along.

@Mayor McSteeze--Wonderful. I like them both. I'm also interested by the texture of the planet. Did you make two textures and blend them together? Because it looks Moon-ish and then sorta looks Earth-ish closer to the shadow area. I also like the light source you have peeking out of the upper-left hand side of the planet as well as the stars (everyone seems to be making great starscapes lately). The planet/atmosphere needs a bit of anti-aliasing, and the atmosphere looks shifted a bit off as it approaches the dark side. Other than that, nice work :)

@HeavyMetalCat:

I love it, not bad for a first piece! Just some feathering, and some more realistic textures, (which you will more than likely learn later) and it will be a really nice piece! I do like the record. Was it made in Paint.NET?

@Mayor:

I love it! It is your best piece yet! Very awesome! I like the second one best, but the first one is good too. Good to see you didn't erase any of your planet this time.

I thank you all and yes it was made in PDN, which I've actually been using for a while but this is my first completely PDN piece that I put effort into. I'm certain i still have the .pdn file. I'm not sure if I have the feather effect, I'll have to look. Thank you all again.

Edit

I was stupid and flattened the .pdn file before saving...

Sorry to hear that, but it gives you the chance to do it again and incorporate some of the suggestions.

Since there seems to be a run on the spacescapes, I thought I would post this one. It's not 100% PdN. The textures for the planets were made in Apophysis 2.09 beta and made with Shape 3D. The nebula cloud was done with an Apophysis fractal and PdN. I downloaded the beta this week and wanted to see what else it would do that the previous version didn't. WOW ! Plugins ! This changes everything !

Um, take it you don't like my piece? :bigeyes::glum:

The idea is that you comment on the previous one before posting your own. We all like to know how our images are seen by others.

The Got Water? one is good but you're still having problems with the jaggies which just spoils it a little. You can try using feather, gaussian blurring @2, using a large image to start with & then reducing it down, or use alpha-masking. Some good tutes on that.

The texture is great & the colour is fitting. Shadow I think is good & I love the little flare.

@barbieq: Beautiful piece, I love the way that you are able to make gold so glossy ;) , mabye put in a background, because it seems a little empty floating in a black void.

@mayormcsteeze: Nice Mars, although the texture does look a little repetitive and the edges are still jaggies it is very good for a quick piece, and very nicely put together :D

2 new spacescapes- tell me which one looks the best and you get a :cookie:
