One Of Those Days by Eclipse-CJ3 One Of Those Days by Eclipse-CJ3
Well, here's a new one. Hope you like it, I tried out some new stuff, as well as painting ships ;) 5 hours or so, across 3 days.
*If there's some errors it's cause this was just a practice piece, I needed to try something out*

comments and favs would be awesome! :D

Great work! The painting whas really good. You used terragen with this? And did you paint the ships with a mouse or a pen?

To me, a lot of space art is just overdone. There are only so many nebulas you can do before they all look the same. There are only so many planet formations. And there are only so many pretty color combinations. After a while, some of the space artists get to know each other so well that their artwork begins to look like each other's, only adding to the (in my opinion) dullness of the pieces.

And then there is space art, and that's what I would call this. There's an original layout and style here that just isn't seen in other pieces around the site. I love the bits of rock that are about the planet above, and this method of lighting is definitely one of the most original I have seen on DeviantART.

It could use some extra stars in the sky, as *T3RMiN4T0R said, and they could be a little less generic than using the same shape at different sizes, but maybe you didn't want that; considering your original style, maybe it's intentional. Some of the critiques you received here, while I can agree on some points myself, seem to only be based upon what they (we) are used to seeing. Sometimes it's good not to look like you're from the same mold. Ultimately, it's your decision. :)

It's an amazing piece, considering it was used for practice. I think there are places that could use some refining, which is usually the case with practice pieces, but keep this original style. It gives you an edge that most lack.
