!!!!!PLEASE DOWNLOAD THIS IMAGE TO SEE MOST OF ITS DETAIL!!!!!
update (11/06/12): one of my fellow deviants alerted me to a flaw to the top left of my image. the nebula had a sharp cut off in it. so i opened the psd file and manually brushed in some more nebula to remove the cut off. i also brightened the nebula and added a colour layer over the entire image to help everything blend nicely. so sorry about that. LISTENING TO THIS TRANCE [link] + VIEWING THIS SPACE SCAPE = EPICNESS!!!
(i did not make the trance, but kudos to its creator!)
so i'm sorry for having to make you guys wait, but i'm sure this makes up for it! my 5,000 pageviews special, more like 5,100 pageviews, but no biggy, i always deliver my work when it is needed!
so thank you to all my fellow deviants, followers and friends for all your support comments, favs, etc.!
without you guys, i would have never made it this far! so thank you again!
i call this work, Corundum! well, it should really be called blue-corundum, which is actually sapphire, but the tones aren't deep enough.
enough off that and more about the scene! :
its definately one of my more fantasy works!
larger moons that are placed more randomly!
not common in my works!
large star illuminating the nebula!
oh, and i tried a new star brush too, to make my stars look more like the ones commonly seen in space art! looks better too!
a little meteor shower on the nearby moon.
moon and planet with city lights.
so yeah, i really tried to make it look more unique and sci-fi amongst my other works, which are more science oriented. the scene is a little monotone though. it could probably also use a little more contrast. maybe even a little more features could also be included. but other than that, its definately a greater improvement from most of my previous works, mainly that its more sci-fi!
and also that it looks better! i also love the angle, really suits it, don't you think?
comments and critiques are always welcomed and appreciated! and again thank you for all your support!
