Astral by priteeboy Astral by priteeboy
Ta-da! Like every year so far since me joining this site I've managed to submit a new space art right at the turn of the new year (well, locally anyway ;p) Ahh the past decade has some fond memories indeed and hopefully so will the next! 2009 was probably my least favorite of the decade though so it is with great pride that I kick it out the door and usher in 2010 with this! :#1:

As with my other three, I just wanted a glorified "stars and planets" scene. Didn't worry too much about originality and whtanot here since sometimes you just gotta do something for the fun of it even if it is a common subject :aww: But I still hope this is at least a little unique among most space art though, I wanted nice colours and interesting planets. This one was done quite fast since I foolishly left myself with just 2 days before the end of the year to even start, so I crammed and between the days this probably took about 6 hours or so (quick by my standards :sprint:)

Happy New Year! :woohoo:

Wow. Love that gas giant in the background. I'm looking for a multicolor gas giant to use (so would need some tutorial to make it myself, or someone happy to lend a hand). Any ideas/pointers?

Colourful gas giants, or any planet can look fake and marble-like if the colours are too rich. The key here assuming you know how to make the texture first) is that the more colours there are, the less-saturated they should be. This one has a lot of colours, but few of them are very vivid shades of their colour :nod:

Thanks. Will fire up Gimp and Blender and give it a try. :)

This is wonderful, so are your other space works! I see this a lot in fantasy art; it would be cool if the other planets and moons were close enough for us to see like this but in real life, it wouldn't be good because it may affect the earth's gravity and make life difficult or impossible :)

Yeah, the gravity issue is a problem many people, even I forget about sometimes when creating these. Perhaps we are better off with just one, distant moon after all :D

Its just art so you can do anything :) I love all your space pictures :) I'm just saying that the reason the other planets and moons can't be too close to earth is possibly for the reason I stated ;) But on other planets where there is no life, it may be possible.
