Pyre by AdrienCGD Pyre by AdrienCGD
Presenting Pyre, a piece created around June 2010 using Photoshop CS2. Textures created using my camera. Had fun with this and tried to work on just making a nebulae. My main purpose is to blend different colors together to go from warm to cool.

Haha thanks for the compliment! I still regard you as a great artist. We got different style which is why I think you're better than me. I can see how you did your space art, yet mine doesn't look as good. That's because I need to practice more. Haven't had a chance to practice in two months now...

Well I havent seen much of your planet work, but from looking at your nebulae work, its simply fantastic. Knocks mine out of the park.

Thanks. I just hit intermediary not long ago thanks to a bunch of space artist's critiques so I still feel like I have a way to go before I catch up to them. Maybe someday we could have a collab? I had that thought when I looked at your gallery just now. I don't know if it's a good idea or not. I wanna try more of what I did in my last piece. I realized I needed to work on my glow more and lighting. Besides there's a bunch of other things I wanna practice first. So I got some catching up to do as soon as I get Photoshop. Hopefully it's tomorrow lol

Youre lighting seems to be alright. All you need to know is some basic astonomy. Like in an image that is very dark with one light source and no outside source, your shadows are going to be very dark. You just need to get proper textures for your planets! Though that would texture for your one planet was very unique and interesting!

And yes, we need to do a collab. I'd say you do the fancy background since your nebulae beat mine any day. I'm up for one whenever you want :D

You're right. Tell you the truth, most of my space art are experiments. I always learn from them because I try new things. So I learned a bunch of new things and I think that now I should practice more before trying to learn more. So time and practice is all I need for the moment. And you're right about the astronomy. I kinda rushed it so I didn't notice. A collab? That would be awesome! Your lighting is pretty good so I would love to do the background and starfield. Then you can edit if you want. When would you want to do a collab? I'm busy at the moment but I could find some time.

AdrienCGD Featured By Owner Feb 22, 2011
Haha I don't have freetime really to tell you the truth but I could do it this week if you want. The way I do collabs is like this: we start working on ideas. Then we chose who will do what. Then one starts, send it to the other. Back and forth until we're happy. Usually takes a week or two. A bunch of other people do that and it's worked good. How about you? What would your plan be?

Nice piece:)

It has a very warm feelin on the left, and a smaller cold part on the right, good combination!:)
But what happens when the right part is warm too?
Maybe it makes this scene somewhat calmer;)

Techniques look very good!!:D
I have to go now, but i will make this comment complete later today!

You're right, I guess that's because the colors aren't 50/50 from warm to cold. Well it's one of those experiments that can always use a tune up afterwards ^.^

True. Most professional artists like you and the other SA artists on DA will see those little details that can be tweeked around, but to the untrained eye, those look amazing lol

Lovely colours man. The piece would improve with a stronger focal point though. Still a good job though! :)

Hehe glad you like them! I got so tired of always using one or two colors only so I wanted to splash warm and cold colors together :)

Just wondering, but what do you mean by a stronger focal point? I feel stupid for not knowing what a focal point is... Is it the focus point on the image where all the attention is or?

Hehe thanks! Glad you like it! :) Is it just me or does it look a bit weird around the top of the eye of the nebulae?

a lil bit, maybe cause you reduzed the opacity of something in white, but its fine its barely noticeble

:iconadriencgd:
AdrienCGD Featured By Owner Sep 29, 2010
Yeah I think I must've accidentally erased part of white radial gradient that I applied to it. Should've been more careful. Good thing that it's barely noticeable though. But I'm sure really good space artists will notice it after a few seconds of analyzing :XD:
