Rings of glory by priteeboy Rings of glory by priteeboy
whoa, first space-themed deviation in about 2 months lol. Well it sure felt good to make one again. though this time I tried a different method in creating it. Just about everything here, except for the stars, planet-atmospheres and some bits of cloud was rendered as is, directly out of Vue 6.
manually-painted textures were applied to huge spheres which were pushed far beyond Vue's "world limits" to make 3D planets, rings were done similar, having been projected onto a massive Alpha-plane which covered the whole scene, and all of this takes place above Vue's amazing spectral atmosphere with some of its amazing, yet underused MetaClouds to simulate those immense storms that would be covering the skies of this gas-giant that you are currently floating above, whilist seeing a neigbouring giant off in the distance :)

can i just point out how harmonious the colour scheme is on this one? i'm not a fan of complementary colours but you've got me converted boy! :love:

Complementary colours are hard to get right, some combinations look Ok together. Like, red and green often look horrible together and look like some cheesy Christmas decoration :xmas: Purple and Yellow are an interesting combo but there's few instances where you can use those either. Blue and Orange is the most natural, on the ground you can have an orange barren landscape under a blue sky, in space most things are usually one or the other (nebulae often have a lot of blue and orange, stars mainly come in those colours as do planets) so it's a safe combination I used here that your'e sure to see in a lot of space-art :D

well, the red and green here definitely don't remind me anything like a christmas tree!! :XD: i am slightly curious though, for some reason a number of people who like bishonen also like gorgeous space art--like yourself and me! is there any connection between the two? aesthetic beauty perhaps?

I've never noticed any connection at all, I always thought the two were totally different worlds and I see very few fave both and even fewer again draw both (in fact, I havn't met anyone asides myself that draw both, it's often one or the other) Maybe bishounen is often cute, pretty and romantic which is a "girls thing" while space - most think of scintific stuff or epic futuristic space battles etc which last time I checked - most girls find boring :lol:

But the space I do is different, mainly focusing on natural beauty and less on the sci-fi scene. Either way, I'll continue to adore both these vastly different by equally eyepopping things :love:

that Gas Giant was a very successful experiment lol, using a particular technique that I used again in Living with Leviathan :D I have a set of four different gas-giant maps including that blue one ready to put into a stock-pack here, But I'm waiting until I'm less busy with contests here, which seem to come and go in massive "waves" :work:
