Shores of gold by tadp0l3 Shores of gold by tadp0l3
I promised to try and color-up my art work a bit a while ago. So here's the first colorful piece I've made in quite some time.

Also a quite different nebulae from what I usually do...

Please tell me what you think

Original resolution: 1850x3000

All of the pieces of the gem series:

Shores of gold
Sapphire waves
Birth of a ruby
Calcentine Abyss

Wallpapers can be made available if you'd like

You're welcome. :) As for the song, I can't quite remember the name. It was instrumental, but that's about all I remember.

Superior star placement and use of color. Also this piece has what a lot of space pieces lack, and that is texture.

Amazing nebula and nice planets.

I'm a little distracted by the star and the way it's shining right up to the edge of the nebula, otherwise looks like a masterful piece IMO.

You mean the main light source? What's distracting about it?

It's so close to the edge, at least in this resolution, I think it brings my attention all the way to the very right edge, but there isn't much there. I just feel like it throws off the composition.

And it's probably intentional, and looks kind of cool, but I guess it's a bit weird that it's "behind" the orange clouds at the bottom/foreground? It looks like it is anyway, if you look at the top right edge of that orange part. I usually think of nebulae as background elements, at least when it's huge swaths like that, so it's throwing me off.

Hope I wasn't too judgmental, it's still very good, I really like the colors.

Great planet, very interesting patterns. And the nebula looks like we're up really close to its edge too :D yet even being relatively near it we are still several star lengths away, as implied by the fact there are small stars still between us and it :omg:

Aye, and to think that despite the nebulae being several star lengths away, we're probably only seeing a tiny, tiny portion of it - some small edge on the far rim or so.
