Odarum System by Alpha-Element Odarum System by Alpha-Element
:)!!!DOWNLOAD FOR BEST QUALITY!!!:)

EDIT: some major changes were made to the image where the quality on the foreground moon was increased thanks to a tutorial from :iconbaro:. also, the rings were changed. i hope the improvements are noticed by others and hope you all enjoy the image!:)

heres my very first orbital!:) and i think it came fearly well for a first try, except the foreground moon came out with low quality because i made its finished size too small, so when i blew it up, the detail ended up getting blured.:( also this took me about 2 weeks to complete, been fidling around with features to see the different effects they had on the image. anyways, hope you guys like it!:)

Good one!

May I ask what sort of technik you use for making the big planet? Warp, Perspective?

That is exceptional work. Great attention to accuracy there by keeping all of the moons on the same general plane as the gas giant's rings :-)

Quite good work. You have improved a lot. However the rings and the planet are a bit jagged. :p
Also I like the soft texture of the gas giant.
BTW, I have made a gas giant tutorial on Solar Voyager space art forum: [link] Go check it out, Im sure you can learn something new.

I've gotta feeling I saw that gas giant already somewhere. Maybe you should credit stock images. If it's yours, I'm sorry :XD: (well gas giants are not that easy to distinguish)
Anyway, pretty awesome work, you might want to redo that close-up planet, because that's the thing that ruins this awesome piece!
All in all, great work! ;)

its ok!:) as you said, gas giants can look familiar because of their colour or sometimes because their features can be quite subtle and hard to distinguish!:)

Well, just try to make your planets not blurred and keep up on the awesomeness like in this work! ;)

right now i'm actually working on fixing the blurred planet but the image size is very large and i'm afraid if i make the image size for the planet too big to increase quality that it may crash my computer. so i'll get back to you guys when i'm done!:)

I'm usually doing 4000x2250 images in the end without trouble, what do you use and what computer do you have?
