No problem, the only thing is, DeviantArt doesn't allow faving entire folders; All your works are great!

I kind of rushed it and had tried something similar before. Now I pay more attention to detail, but before I would try to just let my imagination take over which would be a hit or miss. But I'm really happy to hear you like this one :)

Nice!!!!!!!!!! I think the right should be higher though!

You're right. I just finished a piece that's got the same idea with the two light source and it came out much better than this one, yet it's very different. Different tricks used.

Sorry i meant ring*

AdrienCGD Featured By Owner Sep 10, 2010
Oh the ring? Yeah, now that I look, it could be a little bit higher. That's why a few of my friends said it looked a bit off :o

Yeah. Unfortunately I don't have my psd file anymore because it was on my old laptop whose HDD crashed...

Yeah! I finished another project last week that's similar to this one, but much more enhanced! :)

Hey I got a favor to ask. When I upload a piece, and you think it might be DD worthy, could you tell me? Right now I know that none really have much of a chance, but in the future if there's any that might have a chance, could you tell me?

Awesome work!!:)

I really like the star on the right, it looks like it's sucking in some part of the universe!!:)

Hehe thanks! I was trying to give it a special feeling like all the stars are getting clustered around it and light comes out of it. I think I could've worked on it some more though.

RobertPrinsen Featured By Owner Sep 5, 2010
well, it looks retty good allready, if you really feel like improving on it, you should do that, else, you should think off the things you noticed and learned inthis piece and use those things to improve your next upcoming piece;)
Reply
:iconadriencgd:
AdrienCGD Featured By Owner Sep 5, 2010
That's a good idea. I usually do the second thing you said which is learning from this piece so I can keep in mind what to improve for future pieces. And I also don't have the PSD file anymore so I can't really edit it.

RobertPrinsen Featured By Owner Sep 8, 2010
That's probabaly the most important thing i said, Keep learning from what you do, thats the only way to get better;)
mm, to bad you lost the PSD file
Reply
:iconadriencgd:
AdrienCGD Featured By Owner Sep 10, 2010
Yeah, and you never stop learning! That's the good thing about it! :)

:iconrobertprinsen:
RobertPrinsen Featured By Owner Sep 11, 2010
True;)
once heard someone say: even the developers of Photoshop dont know every trick of photoshhop, because it has so many things you can do with it;)
So learning we probably will for a long time;)
(which is fine with me:P)

AdrienCGD Featured By Owner Sep 14, 2010
Haha that's probably true! Just like with gamers who find more tricks in games than the developers would even think of! But it's mainly because people have creativity and know how to use things differently and try new things and blending possibilities together!
