Dark Surge by tadp0l3 Dark Surge by tadp0l3
A relatively quickly made piece for my usual phase. Nothing extraordinary.

Comments and critique always appreciated!

Tell me if you'd like a wallie and that can be arranged :)

Edit: Changed some minor things, including the lightning on the main planet.

Wallpapers added, press download for 16:10 and 16:9 resolutions.

Could look much better with some more grit (noisy stars done well, for instance). It has good depth already, though.

I really like the star field, but its blurry. You need to run a couple sharpen filters over it to fancy-up those stars! :D

Well, the blurry stars are behind a lot of the gases in the nebula, and wouldn't appear sharp :)

Veyr natural-looking colour scheme. This is probably what most nebulae would look like before different gases are converted into different colours via computer. The large planet looks nice too :)

I don't think the shading on the largest planet looks.. "right"?

But otherwise I absolutely love this, the cluster in the background looks like a fiery explosion, and I think that black 'arm' reaching out to the source of light is an excellent touch.

Thanks man,

Whats wrong with the shading, care to be more specific??

WoahAlex Featured By Owner Sep 29, 2010  Student General Artist
I feel the shaded side should be darker since there is no other direct light source in the picture, if you ever look at a picture of the earth/moon showing the sun shining on only one side then you'd see the other side is completely black. But I'd just darken more it on your planet so people can appreciate the great texture. ;D

Keep up the awesome stuff though, I get excited just seeing I've got a deviation update from you ;D

Well, the shadowy side would be lit from a light source outside of the picture - a light source from behind the spectator. We know nothing of whats outside of the rims of the piece. There could well be a distant sun, a close star or a very reflective moon illuminating the dark side of the planet that's beyond what you see in the picture. The planet obviously exist somewhere in space that's much more illuminated and colourful than the space surrounding our own planet.

That said - there's apparently a flaw in the composition of the piece - seeing as you feel it to be a bit unnatural. And I think in the end that it's due to the fact that I want to show off the texture of my planet :p

That last sentence of yours made my day btw! :)

All very true, and I don't blame you for wanting to show off that excellent texture you work hard on. I mean all artists have their own little mannerisms in their work, yours could be that the lighting suggests that there is more to this particular part of the universe you have depicted, like you said. Even though it's actually just you wanting to show off your texture ;D

Moreover, your art fascinates me regardless of your disregard of conventional physics aha!
