Extinction level event by tadp0l3 Extinction level event by tadp0l3
Extreme solar bursts threaten life in this corner of the solar system

Grew tired working on this, started out, as so many times before, as a practice piece - but got stuck on several elements over the course of time... Not too sure about the final result.

Baseplanet: *freelancah
Satelite mesh: NASA (textured and rendered in VUE).
Original size: 3840x2400
Wallpaper resolution: 1920x1200

You want other resolutions, give me a shout

Do you mind telling me what program you use to draw these amazing amazing pieces of art.

tadp0l3 Featured By Owner Apr 10, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Sure :)

Apopysis and Photoshop for the background and the sun.
Terrragen for the close up planet (not made by me)
Photoshop for the moon
Vue for the satelite (prerendered in some 3d program, probably 3smax, by NASA).
Photoshop for final touchups.

Thanks! :)

Would unfortunatly be a very messy tutorial. 3 programs used (Apophysis, Vue and obviously Photoshop) by me, and *Smattila made the planet in yet another program; terragen. And my creation process is extremely chaotic and messy, doubt anyone would learn much from following it, heh :P

Actually this is a highly probable event. The older a star is, the hotter it gets. And eventually the Sun will go super nova and obliterate the first few planets (including the Earth).

Woah! Awesome :) I think there is something wrong with the sun though. I see three colors - white, light blue and dark blue (sunspots?). The dark blue colors make the sun lose its warmth and look unrealistic. I think there are two ways you can improve it - either Desaturate the sunspots or completely erase them. ;) Great work overall. *_*

I can also go watch paintings by Leonardo da Vinci to learn how to paint. How in hell does a comment like that help me? You're just an ass qaz, a small ignorant little man-child.

You're so paranoid and the artist you mentioned, did he ever painted a sun and you made yours like his? And again you're so paranoid :)

tadp0l3 Featured By Owner Dec 2, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I'm not paranoid, but your comments are always borderline rude and stuck up. You behave like an egocentric little brat. I'm not sure you know the meaning of the word paranoid to be sure. What I am sure of though, is that you can refrain from your type of comments on my deviations. Constructive criticism, fine - your kind of ego inflated, poorly disguised bashing - no thank you.

Anyway, honestly I didn't want to make probs or anything I just cared enough to post a little critique ... I even did fav some of your other pics and added some of them in worth-dds group!
You just were not smart to know that and rush and also ignorant!

tadp0l3 Featured By Owner Dec 4, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Smart enough to what? Take insults from you to get a few favs from you? I really don't care about favs, or even getting DDs. I create my small pieces of art as a relaxing hobby and I use deviantart because it's full of wonderful and nice people - sadly, you're not one of them though qaz. I couldn't care less about your favs or groups.

And ignorant? Really? From you? You posted a journal saying the japanese deserved the tsunami for christ sake - and you're calling me ignorant?

I know how you feel - I've been slaving over the same artwork I need for something personal (and it will cost a lot to get it printed too, so it has to be perfect) But it seems like I can never get a result I like - and starting over again would take way too much time. Of all the times to feel uncreative :doh:

Very cool, I think a blue star should be brighter - might cause some loss of texture but it would probably add some realism and light-intensity if that helps. But sometimes you just gotta declare it done :judge:

Yeah, was in a crappy mood too, so wasn't very forgiving towards the piece or myself, figured it didn't deserve to be improved, hehe.

Brighter, you really think so? I kind of feel it make it look burned and washed out...
