Cosmic crystal by priteeboy Cosmic crystal by priteeboy
My third and last submission into the Exotika contest. I am just glad to be involved in the first competition of it's kind.
Although this isn't My most detailed or time consuming digital art, it is one of My personal favourites and I hope viewers will be equally pleased with it. I would say it took between 8 to 10 hours and most of that time was spent on the nebula at the bottom. The crystals dont have to be any existing crystal in particular but I just reckoned the blue colour best suited the theme.

Thankyou, stars and crystals alike do shine and give off and reflect light, such a scene like this would surely sparkle a lot indeed :D This is one of the few older pics that I consider remaking at times, thougb I save remakes for dull moments where I can't come up with new stuff (which is rare :XD:) thanks for the faves too! :)

Could you imagine how bright and beautiful that would be to see in real life?

Maybe if I ever do a remake - it will be more life-like anyway (especially now that I have 3D, here I didn't at the time) thus making it easier for anyone to imagine the real thing 8-)

For a long time I've been intending on making remakes of many of my older peices that you've nicely taken the time to comment on :thanks: And this was on the list, I bet I could make the crystals look much better in 3D :plotting: but it might be a while off, I got too many new ideas I want to do first :painter:

I love the real sense of space the things in the background give. I almost appreciate it more than the foreground.

I too think the distant Nebula's are the best part of this one. The crystal meteors in the foreground would have been better if done in 3D, but I had no 3D software at the time :(

you have some reallll super potential with those awsome nebulas, but the lighting is real funky in this- source?

anyways, i want to see more from you :)

ThankYou very much.... When You say 'funky', do You mean there is something wrong with the lighting or is it just another way of saying it's cool ? because that word can be used in a positive and a negative way.

That was one of My first thoughts when I finished it. Probably because of the shap-edged dust clouds that look like rocky reefs, and the blue colour.
