Argument by nuformz Argument by nuformz
Sequel to my last piece, Discussion. You all can discuss the implied reasons for the titles.

Still not done. I'm uploading this because I've been staring at this same screen for the last 5 hours. All total, I think I've worked on this piece for about 45-50 hours.

I need feedback. I can't see problems anymore with this piece. Its all glazed over to a sort of dull existence. If you comment, then it better be telling me what I can do better. If you leave a pointless 5-8 words that basically says, "That r0x0rz", then don't even bother.

That said, constructive feedback is more than welcome. Faves are always cool too.

iunno. how do you constructively criticise jesus?? XP

if i had to bo absolutely and disgustingly nitpicky, i reckon you should make the shadows on the mountain deeper. maybe not the whole thing, just in places...

that asteroid is way off. Not realistic even at all. I can't really say for sure, but I can't help but think of it as "lower quality" than what I try to do now. these days I try to put more effort and time into details. heh heh that's all I can really say.

Well this is a great piece allready and has its unique style. It would help us if you said what what do you want to create. Something realistic? Then you could say i dont like the haloson the edge of the other two falling comets! It looks like bent lens flares. Try something more fire looking and random, as someone said above. Now the impact site on the planet should have someflying debris around the circle area. Imagine a rock droping into water, it makes a wave but a few splashes out of the surface randomly. I cant express this in english but i think you know what i mean.
Nice concept though!

I like it alot, but here's a little constructive critizism:

The two smaller asteriods; the glows comming off of them are at odd angles. They look as if they already hit something...The halos of light should appear circular to the onlooker (us).
Also, the cracks in the planet (satelite, celestial body, whatever...) are far too smooth. If a planet were to crack from a huge impact like that, the rifts would be EXTREMELY violent and random. Those all look similar.

There you go. Hope that helps.

hmm...a critique?

the chaos up above doesnt exactly blend with the calmness of the render below...
also, the black, broken sky at the top should also be at the bottom behind the mountains, just a thought :D
great piece, definetly woth the hours put into it :+fav:

Would have liked it a bit bigger, but I have to say that planets are definately not my expertise, and I can't really help you with them. Sorry

Looks real nice though

Hmmm... set the opacity of the reflection a little bit higher and edit it a little bit with the burn and dodge tool to give it some more depth and the clouds with the stars in the upper middle of the pice looks a little bit to sharpened, try to smooth the outer lines of the clouds a little bit more. I think that was enough critique ;) Can't find any more to critique on :)
The rest of the piece is AWESOME! The Firery burning effect ROCKZ :headbang: and the texture of the planet itself is so heavy detailed! :+fav: :+devwatch: Keep it up !

Its very nice, I would love to know how this kind of effect is made.

The things I would change are: The reflection is to glassy, I would make the reflection ripple with the waves more and have everything but the brightest reflections grow darker in the water near the bottom. The hills in front are good, but the further back ones need to be darker. At that angle they would be almost black. Also, untill the bright spot is further above the hill, I think it should be slightly dimmer under the horizon of the hill.

Other than that, maybe turn it to 11, or add some cow bell or somthing. Its great.

About the reflection...I haven't tried this myself for reflections, but If you use the water as a distortion map for the reflection, it might bring more realism to it...I just seems too smooth for that water. Also, you could try a tiny bit of glass distortion and motion blur, Ive done this is the past with some fair results. Other than that, I'd say it was an awesome piece of work,

well....i dont have much experience with sci-fi stuff, but i dont see anything wrong with it.......its kinda freaky........the only thing i see is that the cracks maybe should have a bit more detail, (as in like more splits in each crack)........but other than that i think its perfect........

I think the starfield-texture and the cracks is maybe a bit weird. Also, the reflection of the planet could have had a bit more perspective and waves. Although, the colors is nice and the impact is good as well.

I think this is a great piece and I think it will be even better when its done. Now, I'm not one to talk since I pretty much suck but anyway, the stars in the backround all seem to be the same brightness and almost the same size, they seem identical. I would maybe have some stars that stand out, since some many be closer to the plants, and some area's may just be open space in... space, there isnt starts everywhere. I hope I gave some useful criticism, but I must say, this is a great peice. Keep it up!

sry 4 not critiquin b4, was in a hurry last time i was here and didnt get around to readin the descrip.

theres sumthin about the planets reflection in the water thats a little off. a linear dogde layer settin on it might work better (ps7). then again it might only look better at high opacity. id add some darker colors for contrast inside the ring goin out from the explosion point. 1 more minor thing is the, the ~45 wind lines above the sunset on the canyon, id fade those out a bit w/ the 300 fade eraser, or sumthin like that.

i like this peice, like i said below, cant wait to c the final!
peace
