No Boundaries by synax444 No Boundaries by synax444
Please full view... there are a lot of details you cant see :)

I was hesitant to even upload this piece in fear of Pr3t3nd3r killing me... but I'm really into galaxys right now and I'm trying to perfect my skills... Artists who helped me in this category: :iconj4m3sb0nd: :iconsomnicelestia: and :iconphoenix-06: So I thank them very much! As well as other inspiring artists like :iconnameless-designer: :icongucken: and :iconpr3t3nd3r: Amazing artists check them all out!

Anyway, this is my second galaxy piece, the view is from directly above and that small planet is billions and billions of lightyears away from it... so relax! Let me know what you think! Cheers and enjoy!

Looks nice, but I don't like that big blurry-noisy star to the upper left (looks like it has been enlarged, producing bilinear filtering artifacts). It also looks like the planet is transparent in its shadow, implying that it is actually behind the galaxy. That planet would in that case be about 1 yottaquintillion+ times more massive than the entire universe. :p

how did u make it (the nebula)?
Reply

synax444 Featured By Owner Aug 11, 2008
Thank you man!!! :D
The nebula or explosion (whichever you prefer :P ) is a mixture of apophysis flames and a picture of clouds... thats where you see the "Smokey" look...

If you dont have apophysis or cant render nebula style flames, go ahead and download my flame pack, theres 12 renders in there that may be of great use to you ;) [link]

More than the galaxy itself, I love how you've added the galaxies in the background. Beautiful piece, wonderful colours, intricate details, everything it needs to be entered into my space collection. :)

You're certainly welcome. ;) And here's yet another nice galaxy scene! Some nice depth indeed, helped a whole lot by your many-layered starfield. Still, you could further work on that: there's a uniform noise starfield which covers the whole piece with little variation, furthermore, it is seen in front of the dark molecular clouds - depth would be improved if you at least made it invisible (physically behind) the dark nebulae (like bottom right). Not far above from that spot is a white star which seems to lack any glow, and looks a little blurred in a low-resolution kind of way; I suggest some colour/linear dodge glow around it. A few other stars/galaxies wouldn't hurt with this as well. Overall quite nice, though. ;)

This galaxy has a very convincing shape and form, most who are good at space art don't seem to do galaxies from this angle, since side-views look more dramatic, but you pulled this off nicely, and good colours used too :D
