I've always wanted to add a sun to my gallery!
`taenaron's latest exclusive wip reminded me of that thought :)
This is a wallpaper, the empty space at the top left corner was intended (my trash can icon is there :o )
p.s.: Most original title ever :dummy:
thanks a lot for visiting! :)

The space station there Kinda looks like The Twins from Outer Wilds.
It's a pocket solar system space simulator game which, surprisingly, has a emotionally complex element to it, I feel.
The planets might look small, but that's just an illusion, kinda, they're rather pocket size, sure, but they're big enough to explore and get lost in.

The star is very realistic and well made, it's very similiar to the sun: great job! ;)
I also like the spaceships and the shape and texture of the space station (if it is a space station).
The two little black planets, however, are too "plastic" and low detailed, but you can fix it with ease 'cause you're skilled in drawing planets :)

Reply

gucken Featured By Owner Aug 14, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
thanks! :o the star effect? mhh the sun I have created by using a brownish base to give it the right colour scheme; after that I've added details in colour dodge and linear dodge; to give it a shiny touch I have used details in layer mode screen :) everything in a rather yellowish colour to give it the right colour in the end

Awesome! Its so bright 8-). :+fav: ! I made a Sun too. I'm a newbie at making Space Scenes so its nothing compared to yours. Got any tips ? [link]

thank you! :)
sure, first of all, you need some more details in your sun.
a simple trick to achieve that, is to start in a much bigger canvas.
in the end you can simply smaller the size for the viewer. :)
and the sun lacks some bright spots to indicate brightness

other than that, it's pretty cool, nice colours :)
keep it up :thumbsup:
