hello again! its been a while since i've uploaded anything sci-fi and space related, huh? well i'm back and i brought you guys this one, spent about a week on it because of school and what not. i call it enigma because it has that mysterious feel to it which i like. also, this is probably the first time i'm doing a space scape like this. the only other one i did thats close to this one is spire. but i think i'll do a few more of these in the future. as i always say, comments, critiques and favs are welcomed and appreciated. this will also be available as a print and in the near future, i may release a wallpaper pack to!:)

It really is just a lovely peice of work, I have two things I think could be improved. The rings just kind of....stop. It looks like you tried to make it fade off, which is lovely, but it immedietly cuts to the faded ring. I would make it a slow fade instead of a cut off. Speaking of the area around the rings, that brings me to my second idea. There is a second perfectly straight light flare right through the faded ring, which I think looks strange. I don't know your intention, so if everything I'm saying was on purpose, then YOU DID AN AMAZING JOB! I really hope this doesn't offend you in any way, or make you feel like your work is not good, because it is amazing. Wonderful art, and I hope I could help!

First off I suggest everyone look at this wonderful piece by clicking the download image button. Only then can you see the true scope and detail of it all. It doesn't seem like it from the preview, but its highly detailed and has many great aspect to it. Your lighting is spot on, that was the first thing that drew my into this piece, you really know how to give the right lighting effect to the object around the light source. I especially love the small shooting stars, I think it would be nice if you added a few more and mixed up the overall star brightness. Besides the two stars at the bottom they are pretty much the same in the rest of the piece. Overall this is a beautiful and well put together piece. Well done!

This makes me keep thinking back to the mounting discovery made mid to late last year that almost every star in the universe has at least one planet around it, thank you for taking the time to make this.

I very much like the use of the glare/light on one corner and the shadow cast upon the rings on the corner opposite. I've just set it as my desktop background and it works great with icons grouped to the right and top.

I'm guessing there's a story to account for the rings not being aligned with the rotation as suggested by the surface clouds -- or in the plane of the moons for that matter.

thanks, glad you like it!:)
also, my story to why the rings aren't perfect:
creating a polar view of a gas giant is difficult in photoshop and the image is sci-fi.:)

Reason enough!

You're far from alone. For some reason you see images/movies of moons not in the plane of rotation along with rings a lot, even though the rings/rotation/moons all have to be in a plane to create rings in the first place.

I guess they just look cooler that way. The difference in the rings and the moons does make your moons stand out nicely -- they'd be almost hidden if they were in the same plane as the rings.
