Limit 2 by ChrisCold Limit 2 by ChrisCold
Limit 2.

A remake of my older work [Limit]
I can say the coral-like clouds were hell-hard to make.
Hope you like it.


Music:

Metallica - Fade to Black
Deftones - Passenger
Apocalyptica - Ion

That's just so epic and inspiring .. i always love close-ups of huge planets that have debris, gas clouds and what feels like an entire atmosphere around them in space .. marvelous work.

I'm very impressed with the quality of the planet surface, the moon and the asteroids. The texturing is very detailed, and unlike Daniel, I think it works in this case--it makes the planet look like it will soon come apart at the seams. The clouds have wonderful highlights, and you can believe there is lightening flashing beneath them. I also like the few stars that show through the clouds--it helps the 3D effect. All in all, a first rate effort. 2x:thumbsup:

Actually, I'm very happy about the final result, but the texture could be scaled down, anyway. I think Daniel meant that the big cracks on the surface make the planet look smaller than it is, the quality is ok I think.
Thanks alot for the comment

This looks awesome! I love how you pulled off the monotone pallet, you don't see that very often in space art, and the details are just amazing! The crackled texture of the planet, and all the little meteors. Great job.

That's some amazing work. Love how brushed the clouds look and how this whole piece feels so cold and distant. It looks as if the planet just fell into a big pile of white powder and it all steamed up and shaped those clouds...you place with the light nicely, and I love the accent line of this one spaceship which moves my eyes back to the planet. That's just a wonderful play with the composition. The twinkles of the star help to balance...
The one thing that I feel slightly unsure about is how 'small' the texture on the main planet looks. I suppose it is some sort of dried earth / crack texture which you used, and I quite like its look, but I feel like the cracks should perhaps be closer to each other and the differences in height of the various ground elements should not be too obvious, because that makes the planet look small and us very close, when his little brother has all this fine and intricate detail which gives a nice sense of scale and distance....
But even that does not bother me too much. It still is a really really enjoyoable piece. Lovely work! :aww:

Thanks for the detailed critique, it's really a pleasure to read it, especially now - in the modern deviant-life :)
And I understand why the texture bothers you. It's true... the texture was not as big as I wanted, because my camera was broken at the time I was working on this piece(and still is now), so I had no material to work with.
I searched the web for some 'help', but didn't find anything fitting my requirements (probably, because I used my own textures...well, till now, ha-ha). So, I took some older textures.
Don't know, maybe I was just too lazy to do it better. However, thanks for the comment and have a nice weekend.
