Hello,

I know, I've been missing for a while. I've missed quite a lot of great stuff here, like 300 or so pictorium pages! :shock: Guess I shouldn't stay away too long. :wink:

Here are a few pieces I just finished. As always, click for full view.

This one is intended as a wallpaper. I have widescreen and standard resolution available at deviantart.

Have a windows mobile phone? Theme available at DA also.

Welcome back jpope; seems like you've been gone forever.

I was only looking at your dA page the other day to see if I'd been missing anything.

Click on edit button to learn how to do clickable thumbnails.

Notice the .th

Or please don't post such large images again, 800x600 is your best bet.

Pretty standard stuff that everybody on this forum makes.

Just 1 advise on the earth moon, Moon is too close to the Earth.

All and all pretty good job following the tuts.

thanks, I'll keep that in mind.

What do you think of them though (just searching for some constructive criticism)?

Good job following the tuts, that's one of the best ways to learn. Keep at it, but don't forget to experiment and try something original, that's just as good a way to learn.

@ zookey - Looks great. :D

@ chris2fer - Hmm, I can't really tell where you're straying from the tutorial steps.

Someone found a "Meteor text" tutorial for PS, so I did my best to recreate it in PdN.

(There's another example of this in another thread)

Someone at my old church asked me to make a desktop for them, so here it is. :)

The planet was thrown in to make the scene look more full.

Good point, but it feels like drawing part of a planet in the corner throws off the angle (to me).

Let's say that the "meteor's" picture has been taken from the point of view of something already in the upper atmosphere with the planet out of the field of vision.

... Yeah, that works... I think.

Pretty good, but nothing will burn up in "space" like that, only when it enter atmosphere. :idea:

I know nothing about astonomy....... but don't commets burn in Outer Space? or is there no planet like part to them....... gasious body?

Make the background sky, the way it looks like someone is looking up, with some Zoom blur Delux so it's like the "letters" is droping fast. :idea:

The sun (or any stars) is melting the comet's ice so it has a tail.

Notice the tail is alway opposite to where the sun is

@Ash,

Thanks for the lesson on Astronomy. I used to know those things but that is when I was young. My kids know more about all of that now then I had ever learned.

@Wither,

I like your pic (regardless of the inability to burn in Outer Space) but Ash is right if you lightened the background to make it look like your looking up at a night sky, it woud still be really cool!

I added a planet. I think the angle of approach could work, if it doesn't impact the planet, it should 'slingshot' around it.

I also tried doing your sky suggestion, Ash, but I couldn't make it how I wanted, so I decided not to.

How's it look now?

Also redid the "ringed moon" planet. Before it just looked like this circle hanging around out there. :/

Edit: th_meteorplanet1.jpg

I noticed that after adding the planet in the corner, the planet with rings looks like it's only a few feet away. Recolored and shrunk.
