Deep blue space by tadp0l3 Deep blue space by tadp0l3
A rather quick made piece by my standards. Ordinary space scene with a boring name - sorry for that :p

Wallpapers in 16:9 and 16:10 wide screen resolutions without watermarks added for download.

If you like it and use it, please comment and/or fav.

Critique appreciated :)

Edit: dAs downsizing ruins a lot of the quality - download the wallpaper pack and it'll look better.

Update: Sorry for updating so soon after submitting, but I found a couple of major flaws in the first upload. Some lightning changes made to enhance the planets, and another planet added to balance the composition somewhat more.

I absolutely love the composition of this piece! Any chance I could use it for a non-commercial roleplaying game?

Practice, patience and more practice ;)

Space art is a fun genre that practically anyone can learn to do rather amazing things in relatively short time. If you have photoshop go check this out [link] and have a go at it yourself :)

Beautiful. :) I especially love that atmospheric feeling at the border of the Earth and the starry skies...gad, so wonderfully believable and beautiful. Rather quick, you say? ;A; I think your quick piece is better than all of my paintings and drawings added together. XD :clap:

Nope, no stock pictures or references used. There's some fractals in there, but mostly it's airbrushed :)

Glad you like it :)

Too many stars for my taste - the background looks a lil bit flat, but well done.

Nothi'n like back to the basics eh? ;) I do think the nebula is pretty cool in a sense that it reminds me of the traditional, airbrushed ones. Bit of a nostalgia hit there :aww:

:icontadp0l3:
tadp0l3 Featured By Owner Oct 25, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Aye! Technically this is a fair step backwards and back to the basics for me :P And that nebula is airbrushed to a large extent. Was really fun to do though :)
