Regulus this is a GREAT picture.. I own a youtube channel that promotes music and digital concept art. Will you provide me with a large version of this image?? I will source the heck out of you in return.. Ive been looking for an image like this for longer than you can imagine -_-
Thanks! A lot of the sharpness is from working at really large resolutions, my normal working res is 4000x3000. I didn't use a sharpen filter, I don't think [I don't usually] ... I just tend to resize stuff smaller to cram in the details.
rlly nice work, but i think the planets look like kinda droped in you know? The nebula is awesome!! btw. shouldnt the smal planet get some light from the nebula too? despite of that i enjoyed watching your art.
Thanks man! Actually everyone that shows a nebula lighting a planet is wrong nebula are not bright enough to effect the lighting on a planet (see here [link]). Technically the stars in this nebula could maybe light the planet, but you have to realize the distances between stars (measured in light years 1LY = about 10,000,000,000,000km) are thousands and even millions of times the distance between planets (measured in astronomical units 1AU = about 14,000,000km), so it would have only a tiny effect, around 1 millionth the intensity of any nearby stars. A lot of people dont take that into account, but I'm more into realism than most people i guess
