Fatality by tadp0l3 Fatality by tadp0l3
First work in almost half a year. Still haven't got a fully functional computer - had to keep the file size to a minimum and work on very few layers for my 5 year old laptop not to crash.

Feeling very rusty, but was good fun getting back to creating something.

Hope you like it. Comments are highly welcome :)

Fatality by ~tadp0l3 is not rusty work - this is indeed very beautiful, the texture of the planet is smooth and the nebula with the bright stars is amazing. The added explosion (or) impact gives it a dynamic feel. ( Featured by Infinite705 )

Looks like someone messed up with their chemistry set.

This is very nice work. I can relate to being restricted by hardware, so congratulations to the DD. You obviously weren't THAT rusty! ;)

Less rusty than I thought I guess ;) Thanks!

Thawas soooome hot chilly!
Seriously though, it's great. You lead the eye very well, from the sunburst to the moon to the fire. The only thing I can think to mention is that the light sources seem a little crowded. The explosion is kind of tucked between the bulk of the planet and the bottom of the image, while the "sun" is hidden directly in the upper left corner. In fact, the planet itself seems a bit boxed in, just barely touching three sides of the image.
A rule of thumb my professors drilled into me in art school was to avoid tangents with corners and borders. Putting things in corners seems forced, and objects in the picture need to either be submerged well past the frame or a fair distance from it. I think the composition might be improved if you "backed up" and gave the planet space all around itself, perhaps centering it a bit more, and got that light source away from that nook it's wedged into. It's difficult to even suggest that, though, because it really is a very pleasing effect. So you must be doing more right than wrong.

Hey man, thanks a bunch for the possitive feedback as well as the critique.

I generally agree with most of your points too. composition-wise it could have been done differently. But you can also make the point that going above and beyond conventional composition models isn't the worse of ideas from time to time ;)

You did a really good job making this, & i appreciate that you posted this since i'm interested in outer space.
