Celestial Ether by BLPH Celestial Ether by BLPH
This is a little project I worked on the past few days. The primary goal was to simply create a scene which contains a gas-giant and some asteroids, so I started out by rendering the basic setup in Vue and overpainted it in Photoshop. I still haven't figured out how to use the distance-to-camera-input properly, so I just post-worked it the way I wanted it :p

Oh, look, it's a wallpaper-pack! :D
Standard/Mac:
:bulletblue: 5:4 -- 1920x1536
:bulletblue: 4:3 -- 2048x1536
Widescreen:
:bulletblue: 5:2 -- 2560x1024
:bulletblue: 16:9 -- 2560x1440
:bulletblue: 16:10 -- 2560x1600
If you have a smaller screen, just resize it to fit your needs ;)

If you download, please be so kind to fav it as well. A small click for you, but a giant leap for mankind motivational boost for me. Enjoy! :)


Facts:
- Total working time: ~8h
- Original size: 5476x2500px
- PSD filesize: 233MB
- Hardware: Wacom Intuos 3
- Software: Vue, Photoshop
- I created the gas giant texture before even have the idea of this image xD

I'll be gone for the next month, so my responses will be a little delayed ;)

the asteroids are rendered nicely ^^
though there's something not quite right with the overall lighting (or its ambience), i'm not sure what, haha :D

Did you model the ship yourself? Also, how did you get the spaceship ion trail like that? I have been trying to get it like that for some time now.

It's very nice piece, although, the smaller planet I don't think is as good as the rest of the piece, makes it feel a bit awkward. The asteroid ring is also very interesting since you have chosen different sizes to complete the ring. Although, I think they are little too close together. I love the rays of light. =D

BLPH Featured By Owner Aug 12, 2011   Digital Artist
The trail is purely painted. Took me a few tries to get it done in a way that I don't hate it :D

As the light rays are purely driven by the alignment of the asteroids, I can't really make any adjustments (ie. reducing density) without breaking the entire scene. And I guess it's a matter of taste, because I like them they way they are :p

Nice, I have to try now, I've always wanted to paint them like that. My space art work never looks as good as it does in my head.

Thats true not that you mention it, the scene would look different if you did that.

Well, I have started my digital painting-endeavors with spaceart, so I guess it's finally paying off that I'm somewhat doing it for almost 4 years now :p

Thats goos, for me I started in 2006. But it was a very slow start. I started doing spaceart in 2009. Or the start of 2010 I think.

Indeed. I'm working on a Collab at the moment, I have made a planet with the surface on fire.

You also have a lot of space to get better.

I like the light filtering through the asteroids - I don't often see that (I guess it wouldn't really happen unless there was a fine mist of gas and dust in space, but it's cool when there would be ;p) Almost gives me the feeling of being underwater :)

Haha, yeah, I'm myself quite happy that the rays came out so nicely. Not physically accurate but, for a few times, one has to break the laws of physics to make something pretty xD
My physics-profs will chop off my head if they ever read that :p
