hi guys, heres my i year deviant anniversary which i proudly call:The Hieroglyphs Every planet in the universe,
Whether: young or old, big or small, gaseous or rocky, hot or cold,
Has their own story to tell.
A story that tells of their birth, life and possibly death.
Each planet is unique; non are the same.
Each planet formed in a different place in our universe,
Thus all their stories are unique and different.
But, as they are the universe's children,
Their stories all have a common point.
They all tell a part of the universe's story.
And the point i am trying to make is that:
All Planets are The Hieroglyphs of the Universe!
didn't i tell you guys in my journal that it'll be worth the wait!
and yes i know there aren't any hot or cold planets in the image, but just go with it!
got the idea thursday night, started friday morning, finished saturday night, posted sunday morning!
i tried new techniques too:
-a colour layer over the image to help everything blend in!
-light rays! ooh!
-a vantage point closer to the planets rings too obtain higher perspective on the rings!
-angled my star brushes too! a major improvement from that bland other one!
-planet shadows onto the nebula!
-angled the gas giant from its rings, looks much better and interesting like that!;D
-and also, you may not notice it, but the stars aren't as numerous and random and large as some of my previous pieces. there more organised, clustered and neater!
i would also like give my thanks to esk6a
for help and advice on how to use the colour layer for ambient lighting, and how to make the light rays!
so comments and critiques are most welcome and enjoy the image!THIS WORK IS COPYRIGHT ALPHA-ELEMENT
