Momentum by AdrienCGD Momentum by AdrienCGD
A request from my friend :icongorgonbreath: which I made in May 2010. I know I'm a bit late to upload this. Anyways, the idea was to have comets spinning around a moon or planet. At first I thought it was gonna be weird, but it came out pretty good! I know one of the comets spins a bit weird on the left. Should've fixed it before I merged all the layers, saved and quit lol

Tell me what you think!

Hehe thanks for the comment! Yeah I used to not be able to say anything else than that before. That's why I've wanted to learn more about it so I could give more input. But your focus is on literature so make sure you keep that up since it's your strength :)

Practicing a bit on PhotoShop. Haven't had much of a chance to use it in a while... or even to be online lol.

Gonna try to get better at it than before and polish my skills. Even though I'm still far away from you! But I'll get there someday!

Thanks! It's true I've improved a lot since my first deviations, but I still got a lot to learn. And you're right, I do like space art quite a lot! If only I had a laptop with PhotoShop, I'd do a whole lot on it and work much more! I'm kinda stuck at the moment lol

Looks wonderful. ^^ I'm really enjoying the starfield and the nebula(thing?) on this, though I think the nebula is a little...flat, maybe. Unless that is your lightsource...but if it is then the planet lighting would be off, so I don't think it is. I think it's just lacking the depth of your other works, but it still looks good. :)

Maybe for the comets on the left....Well, one of things that sticks out at me is that the curve isn't as smooth. I understand how the effect was to be that the comets were orbiting around the planet at different distances, but there's something lacking to make it all pull together...not sure how to describe it, I'm afraid. ^^' I really like how the comets are circling the planet at different angles though. When I first heard about this, I was wondering if they would be in a single 'ring' chasing each other, or what, but I like that effect.

Sorry, this is a little blabbery(like always), but overall it looks great, Adrien. :)

AdrienCGD Featured By Owner Jul 2, 2010
Hehe don't worry, it's not really blabbery. And I see what you mean. My first time trying to give it that rotating feeling so of course it's not that great. Yeah I tried to give it that cool circling around the planet like an atom feeling lol

The nebulae isn't really a nebulae. I was just making some space gas very fast (lazily lol) and used the motion and guassian blur to try to give it that soft and smooth feeling but yeah it's flat... lol

TheDragonCellist Featured By Owner Jul 2, 2010
Aha, well, you don't have a tablet, right? So that's pretty good~ curves can be pretty awkward even with pencil and paper. Maybe curving them more would add to effect? I'm not very sure how to advise you...^^'

Ah, okay, that makes more sense. ^^ I still don't think it 'blends' in as much as it could, I still like it, haha. XP
Reply
:iconadriencgd:
AdrienCGD Featured By Owner Jul 4, 2010
Hmm that's true that it also doesn't blend too much... I was trying to give it that "smooth aurora" feeling... Guess I failed kinda XD
And yeah I don't got a tablet. So I tried using the spherize feature which was kinda crazy lol
Reply
:iconthedragoncellist:
TheDragonCellist Featured By Owner Jul 6, 2010
Nahh, it still looks good. XD Doesn't ruin the picture or anything. ^^

Aha, I've never used that feature(don't you use it for planet textures and stuff?), so I can't really say anything, haha.
Reply
:iconadriencgd:
AdrienCGD Featured By Owner Jul 8, 2010
Yeah spherize is basically that tool you use when you get your texture so it distorts it to look like a ball (pushes the center outwards). And I tried to put the comet around the side so it would curve it smoothly but yeah I never tried that before so yeah XD

Nice lightning, I like that kind of moods.. maybe the atmosphere is a bit high :)

AdrienCGD Featured By Owner Jul 2, 2010
You're right! I kinda worked on my atmosphere in my latest work so this one isn't that great. I can't believe how I didn't notice that I made the atmosphere so big all the time lol

:iconqauz:
QAuZ Featured By Owner Jul 2, 2010
And also it's better for the planet cuz it looks realistic.
Reply
:iconadriencgd:
AdrienCGD Featured By Owner Jul 2, 2010
It's true! I used to think that I had to put a really big atmosphere to make it look realistic, but that's totally wrong.
Reply
:iconqauz:
QAuZ Featured By Owner Jul 2, 2010
Nah, the atmosphere is really tiny as seeing planets from space like that one :)
Reply
:iconadriencgd:
AdrienCGD Featured By Owner Jul 2, 2010
Yup that's true. But the closer you get to the planet, the bigger the atmosphere feels. So that's probably why most people get it confused.

Oh I forgot that PhotoBucket resizes... Well I don't have the file anymore. Maybe by e-mail I could send it to you? Note me with it if you want and I should be able to get it to you by tomorrow or in two days.
