Daily Deviation

Given 2010-06-03
Alpha Sector by `gucken Suggester says: "This is one of those images that I have watched for hours. Printed on my wall and the most used wallpaper I've ever had. Perfectly executed with great colors and great composition. This is one of those images that should be DD more than once." ( Suggested by aRchAng3lZz and Featured by MacRebisz )
:icontaenaron:
First let me say that I really love the way the whole images looks like. There is a nice line that starts on the bottom right part, leading the eye through the image to the top left explosion. And the explosion itself gives a nice vibrant feeling. The blue contrasts really nice with the red/yellow tones. But I'm not sure with the starfield of the image. There should be much more stars in the area of the nebula and only a few in the rest of the image. Also the random escaping ships could get a more organized flight. It is supposed to be a wallpaper and that's why the negative space works well. With the help of empty ares, you know where to place your icons. If it would be a normal artwork I would suggest to add some more elements.

But nevertheless: nice work Jeff :)

It depends. Sometimes I work on these in only a few sittings of up to 8 hours each. Often I catch myself being distracted by music or funny videos during those sittings.
All in all, I would say, that I need 10-20 hours for each image. There are, however, some images that need only a few hours (2h-5h) and others for which 20 hours are not enough for me. It depends on my concentration and mood. :)

If you're unsure about being able to work with a tablet or not, I suggest you should buy a wacom bamboo first. :)
If getting and using wacom is everything you can think of, I suggest you should go directly for the wacom intuos or maybe even the cintiq.

Official dA contests often give away wacoms as prizes. :)

I like the way you create such scenary of destruction.
They're very impressive and awe inspiring.
I like the blue-red/yellow tnes contrast.
The random directions of the spaceships suggests a rash, hasty and desperate flight.
There are just few stars in the nebula, the rest is ok.
Very beautiful.
