Voyager by AdrienCGD Voyager by AdrienCGD
Created on October 2nd, one of my latest pieces. I finally decided to use a more original texture. I realized that I had been using the same texture over and over again of one which is a picture I had taken of a wall in Santa Monica a year ago :XD:

So I experimented a bit. I noticed a few flaws such as too many stars, not enough atmosphere on the planet in the forefront and too saturated colors. But I still uploaded to see what you guys think of it. Feel free to give me any feedback! ;)

Wallpaper pack includes:
1024x768
1280x800
1280x960
1440x900
1600x1200
1680x800
1920x1200

I noticed a small trhing, in the lower left and right corner, the planet gets vert squarry like:P cant find the correct word, i thinks it's pixelated.. and maybe you can solve that by creating a far bigger planet then the size it's intended to be on the final image, that way, if you resize it to a smaller size, it might get less pixellated?

:) good luck

Yup it's called pixelated and it is pixelated. My textures aren't big enough so yeah. I already knew about making it bigger but I just don't have big enough. I have 3200x2000 textures but I need at least twice as much :( lol

Very good textures!!:) exelent job you did on those1!:)

buty good wokr!!

Yeah, I used textures from real landscapes to make them. This way it's more realistic :)

You're right about the planet. Also I feel I should've worked more and added more in the starfield because it's a bit empty and color saturated. I can't get an idea on how to fix it though.

Thanks :D

RobertPrinsen Featured By Owner Oct 23, 2010
okay;) well, again great job on the textures!!:)

Uhm, i'll check your work again, and see what might help you out.

My oppinion, keep it this way(the starfield) it's really pretty from itself, and i think it will get distracting if you add more details there(1 thing i learned is not to make a product confusing by adding to much details) this is naturally a painting in which it is different, but i think this piece is pretty enough, and full enough of details allready;)

but to be shure, keep tweaking, maybe you could add some small moons and some rocks floating in space?? rings around a planet?
Just try it out? I might be wrong and it could work out good

(no i'm nevver wrong, nevvver:P haha)

Hmm good idea. I kinda got caught up I forgot about making sure not to add to many details. It's easy to cluster a piece sometimes. But when you don't get that rush to add more things to it, your piece just looks so plain and empty. So I try to add stuff. For some reasons I can make space rings but never come out as good as I want to. I'm gonna practice them a little more and see if I figure something out to make it look more realistic.

Btw I meant details as in working on things that are there already, not adding smaller things like planets, stars, etc. So what I meant was working on the lighting for example, or the texture or color.

Haha and yeah you're never wrong, right?

Kinda scary! It looks like they will crash into each other! They look like doomed dead planets, but the colour choices and light are really nice!:nod:

I never thought about that concept but now that I look, you're right! :) The colors don't really support the mood. I should've worked on it some more :XD:

Well I usually take 15 seconds to implant an idea in my head for the colors and composition, then I try it and experiment. But with all the experiment, it usually comes out different. And sometimes I keep one of my piece with a certain color scheme for hours, and then at the last minute I change it completely.

Sometimes spontaneous things can be best, i have done silly drawings on the spur of the moment that i thought would only entertain me, but many people have liked the. It always surprises me.:)

That's so true! There's some space art that I rushed and didn't really like, yet still uploaded and people like it as much as my other ones lol
Glad they liked yours too! We gotta do more of those! What I do sometimes is I do one of those but then start working on it some more and take time to make it look more realistic and professional to the best of my skills.

I only started doing Sci Fi about half a year ago. It's hard to learn how to speed paint. Really hard. >.< But I will get there one day. But one bad thing I had started the colour and I forogt to save. But I didn't get far so I missed out on about one hours work.

That's pretty cool! What exactly is speed painting though? I thought it was self explanatory but apparently there's a little more to it.
Too bad you lost about an hour's work. For some reason I have a hard time redoing lost work when it comes to spaceart... Unlike homework I can't redo it the same. It comes out completely different from what I had done. lol

Speed painting is where you just sketch with the paint tool to create a certain style in in the image. Like Voyagers work for example. ;)

Yeah I hate when you have to re do space art it just takes too much effort. O-O

:iconadriencgd:
AdrienCGD Featured By Owner Feb 22, 2011
Oh I see. So speed doesn't have anything to do with it? Just means you're not using every tool out there like for other projects, therefore it should make it faster?
