Obsidian Ore by priteeboy Obsidian Ore by priteeboy
A dark planet orbiting a star that has already gone Supernova, the heat and pressure from its parent star's violent death has melted and transformed the surface into a black, shiny glass-like rock called Obsidian, of which gives off a bright shine when the white dwarf sun reflects upon its new facade. Large cracks wrap around the planet's surface, and many meteors and small moons orbit around it, most of which were blasted away from the planet itself...Now, a cold and eerie calmess fills the void left behind by a destroyed planetary system.

My submission to the "dark planet" theme that the newly formed :icongalaxyclub: has going. I tried some new things here which I think came out well, but perhaps only for this type of scene, either way, I had lots of free time in the past few days, most of which were spent doing this, so I was able to get it up pretty soon after my last space scene. Enjoy !

Thanks. Most people complain about that. But the way I see it - if the artwork is good enough people will ignore that stuff anyway =p
