Rise and Shine by priteeboy Rise and Shine by priteeboy
The fifth in a series of similar-themed landscapes that I so far have submitted on every birthday since joining dA without fail :w00t: and sticking to the theme of a gradually changing day to night from one to the next each year, well I guess this is the first instance where I'll have to repeat the pattern, starting with a sunrise theme all over again (well, some would interpret it as sunset, but it was intended to be rising ;p) it makes me feel older in some ways, but I guess the fact that after each day there's another is somewhat optimistic, and I always want these ones to have a nice mood about them :)

Similar methods applied to the others (except the first when I had no 3D) I made the landscape in Vue and the space area in Photoshop...The Vue landscape got more painting over than usual, especially on the sea to get "proper" waves. I'd say it took around 20 hours or so - my standard time for any fully-fledged print-worthy work :phew:

And here's past versions for those wnating more :eager:

THAT SKY! Those clouds just make the picture! They really draw the eye towards the sun =). I definitely saw it as a sunrise, too

It's beautiful, because the brightness of the sun contrasts with the darkness of the island.

Yes a lot of people seem to like this one the most. I think it's because it has a more intense difference between light and dark.

Yeah, the intensity between them is immense.
