Galaxy By: Steve-O-mac

This was a old project that I stopped cause I didn't like it, after trashing everything but the planets I restarted it and came up with this,

I tryed to make a lens flare in the top corner, I think it turned out good, I know people are going to bitch about it saying it looks out of place but I don't care, I like it.

Enjoy =) (Smile)

Very cool. I like it. And the lens flare isn't that noticeable. Actually, I like the effect you did with it. Most people can't see it. :) (Smile) Excellent work!

I am going to sound like a broken record here but I have to agree with others, the background is awesome, but the planet could definitely use some work

Beautiful job on the starfield old chap, the foreground planet could be a little sharper, but those craters look grrreat.

B+ :) (Smile)

Very nice planet work here. hmm zany says to likk ht eplanet but i think you should jsut maybe add more textyres or a cloud layer to the planet and maybe reduce the stars..
lord-zany Featured By Owner Apr 17, 2003
i think the planet looks incredibly out of place. You have an incredibly colorful backgroud. And a boring planet foreground. Kill the planet, and think of something that matches the picture.

else; good.

I don't agree, I think the planet looks like a planet. Mercury looks something like that. The star with the slight lense flare to it doesn't seem out of place, it fits in just right. The only thing that seems outta place is the color of the planet. I guess with a BG that bright I expect it to have some mild lighting effects on the planet. Amazing work.

very nice, like the star field and the color scheme

but I think the big planet needs more texture.. :D (Big Grin)
martango Featured By Owner Apr 16, 2003
I agree with the others about the looks more like a moon to the lens flare in the conner..i think it looks great :D (Big Grin) ...nice job with the gases/stars and the colour is awsome...Nice job :D (Big Grin)

i like it everything looks great and works well but one suggestion, the planet seems outta place looks to me more like a moon with the craters then planet maybe it is a moon?? other then that great job :) (Smile)
masda Featured By Owner Apr 16, 2003
hm... well I like the as it is... :) (Smile)
the planet looks good... and the BG .. the colors and the stars/gases? just look great...
and I dont see any disturbing lensflare in there... :/
good work

everything is powerfully real except the planet... but it still looks really good.

There's a lens flare in this? I don't see it. I like the clustering you did of the stars and the way the gases ebb and flow.
