Desolate by AdrienCGD Desolate by AdrienCGD
Created on March 23rd, 2011 in Photoshop CS5. It took me about 3 hours to finish this piece. I tried to keep it simple. Since I like to try new things I decided to make it in B&W. To me it feels a little empty and flat. Critique would be appreciated.

Thanks for all the views and support!

I rarely see anything work out perfectly via B/w, but this does. :) Amazing job. Love the shadows on planets, really well done.

Hehe thank you! Funny thing is that the more I see it the more I see things that are off (like the gamma on the left side isn't strong enough imo).

We should try to do a collab someday ;)

Blue and green? How come?

Homeworld = Earth. Earth is mainly blue (oceans) and green (forest land) with lots of clouds (white) so yeah.

AdrienCGD Featured By Owner Apr 24, 2011
Haha thanks! And for the feature too! And I guess I should make a colored version in the future? Yeah I'll probably do that. Funny how half the comments say it's good to be monochrome and the other half says they'd rather see a colored version XD

i really like this
i also really like how you make it look like your planets have designs like it belongs in a sci-fi movie lol

AdrienCGD Featured By Owner Apr 24, 2011
Thanks! Haha designs from a sci-fi movie? Hmm I never though about that. I just try to make it as realistic as I can with a lot of experimenting ^.^

Great textture on the big planet, and also on the planet left of that;)
You did a good job on that;)


I like the shade behind the planets, makes it look like there's space dust out there;)
The nebula is nice and not to obvious so it wont attract to much attention, now the viewer attention is on the big bright planet and the sun glare from the left;)

Good GOOD Job you did mate!

Oh about the colours, were are they??:P you're always playing around with nice combinations of bright colours, and now it's grayscale;)

Something new from you, different;) But i dont say difference is bad;) Somethimes its alot of fun to do something you'd never do;)

Hehe thanks for the review! Seems my eye for details finally paid off! I always spend so much time both experimenting and trying to add details that I end up falling asleep or getting a headache XD

Yeah I usually add lots of color combinations to make it look more lively but this time I wanted to try monochrome. I'll add a colored version in the future when I feel like it. Probably within less than a month ;)

Wow! Very nice stark black and white look. It could be a scene from an old silent sci-fi movie.

good work!
but the planet feels like a stone, more details on the face may be better...

Really? o.O' haha I guess the planet does look a bit small even though it should be huge
