In the shadow of... by R3V4N In the shadow of... by R3V4N
Just something usual to let you all know I'm still alive. I was pretty excited when I made this, but now I'm not sure, nothing unusual. Although I'm trying some ships lately so expect some crap tries :p Or maybe not, I just want to learn how to make ships, cause these spacescapes are getting boring. You can admit it, go ahead :D
Anyway, at least, proper Gas Giant (I hope).

Yes, no title on pic again. It looks prettier without it I guess. Anyway, I'm trying to break some habits.

PS. If you have any tips about the ships, shoot! I need them, I tried 3DS Max but got confused pretty fast. The proper perspective of the wings is a pain. Help needed!

Excellent piece. I have one qualm, though. The rings are too close to the planet. They would fall into the planet no matter what the orbital velocity is. It might not sound lick much but it does put off some people.

Honestly I wasn't really measuring it or anything, so it's not actually physically covered. But Thanks anyway, I'll try to keep that in mind when I make next gas giant :)

Planeta świetna, pierścienie jak dla mnie trochę "za idealnie" równe. Myślałeś by dodać jakieś meteory, skały czy kamiczki? Powierzchnia planety świetna : ). To samo z tym "ichniejszym" Słońcem ; )

To fakt, te pierścienie zrobiłem trochę stereotypowo i wyszło nieco płasko :\
Ale, człowiek się uczy przez całe życie :)
Dzięki! :)

It's a filter, but you can make it by blurring the straight line. I still do it because filters don't always do their work :)

It's some 3rd party plugin, Lightning Factory or something like that.

Planet. How??!!?
Rings? HOWOW
Starfield?!?!!? Lensflare!?

It's allright not to know how everything was done, but your work is so highly detailed and crisp - it's intriguing!

Planet is made with help of that: [link] and that: [link] and if I remember proper, in Lord's tutorial there's also how to make rings :)
And no, stars are hand made, I don't use lens flare cause it's not too realistic :<

It's alright to ask, although sometimes it's difficult to answer :D

I one once on my ipod touch.
My fingertip is still flat.
Thanks for the resources :boogie:

To tak :P
pierścienie fajne, planeta mniej, nieco za grube te pierścienie or planeta za mała
cień mnie irytuje, jest płaski, po pierwsze powinien albo się poszerzać albo zwężać, lepiej by wyglądał chyba :P no i mógłby być w środku głębszy a przy brzegach blednąć, pierścienie mogłyby mieć tez jakieś smugi cienia, wszak nie są to płaskie koła tylko miliony latających skał, jedne większe drugie mniejsze i przede wszystkim nierówne :) i ten niebieski refleks ssie :P też mi nie wychodzą :D

Ale ogółem ciekawie :) bravou

No ta planeta faktycznie chyba nieco za mała jest :P
Co do cienia, to nie wiem czy to nie zależy od tego jak daleko planeta jest od źródła światła (dalej=cień się poszerza).
A co do reszty to ok, muszę o tym pamiętać, ale to pierwsza udana próba z gigantem w perspektywie więc i tak się cieszę :D
Dzięki za troskę! :)

całkiem niezła praca, bardzo podobają mi się pierścienie
swoją drogą też mam zamiar porobić parę statków kosmicznych, chociaż ja akurat próbuję korzystać z Blendera, przy czym słowo "próbuje" pasuje tu najlepiej :D
powodzenia

Ja właśnie nie wiem co najlepiej wykorzystać i co jest w miarę proste :\ Próbuję w Carrara ale uparte bydle strasznie, a 3DS mnie przeraził z miejsca :D
Obu nam się przyda trochę powodzenia :)

This is sweet, though more painterly than your usual stuff, espescially in the way the different layers of the planet show.

Amazingly good, but also different. I like this a lot.

I tried to focus on the planet completely, I needed to practice those gas giants :)
I'll try to move a lil bit more toward that style, but for now I can't tell anything :D
Thanks! :)

Definitely my fav style man!! I mean natural lightning and colors and the lensflare gives it the best mood ;) but are the rings too close to the saturn-like planet :?

I'm not sure about the rings, you're second person which told me that :\
It might be caused by the same color of planet and rings :<

It looks very neat! But I still feel something is missing, maybe you should've given the planet more textures.

Nevertheless, that's the only thing, you could do to improve this pic. (which I know you can! because, I've seen all of your work! :D) Because the rest is just plain, epicness!

Really like the small planet placement. Gives me the feeling there is something more.

Hope you got some feedback, always helps people to improve their work. Which, I would find usefull myself!

Keep up the great work! :)
And I'm looking forward to see some of your (crappy) spaceships :p

Yup, I alway appreciate feedback, even if it's harsh sometimes :)
It's better to know what can I do better :D Although I don't know how could I add more textures, as the planet is covered with stretched clouds :(
Hopefully I'll make some crappy ships soon :D

What an awesomeness pic' !
The starfield is really great and the gas planet... Brooooaaaar !
Did you used the very good tutorial by Lord-K ?

For the ships, the best thing to do is to draw the ships with a Graphic Tablet, but this need some experience in drawing.

Congrats anyway !

And sorry for my bad english.

I did :) It's one of best, if not best tutorial about gas giants :) Actually, I've merged this one, and one by ~nisht :)
I was trying with tablet, but my outcome were more like lame :D So I'm trying now with my mouse, and we'll see :)
Your english is pretty good, no worries, thanks! :)
