Scout Squad Delta I by gucken Scout Squad Delta I by gucken
edit once again
so many people have pointed out, that the rings are too big etc - so I have decided to change that and made them smaller :)
also fixed and added some other stuff

print updated
prints without signature


Scout Squad Delta I

original size: 3300x4200px @ 300dpi
photoshop cs3 and wacom intuos3 a5


I am thinking about doing a series out of this :o
your opinion?


anyway.. this started as a sun, lens flare, planetary ring and space shuttle training - so why not working more on it than planned
any suggestions on how to improve this one are most welcome :)

Very cool, the rings are gorgeous! It's different to see a piece where you can see so much of the broad side of the rings. Beautiful piece. :)

I like it. I never thought the rings were too big though o.O really, in scenes like that, rings can be as big or as small as you please. Some plants rings can extend further than yours have just because of passing debris that have yet to be completely ensnared in the planet's gravitational pull.

How can rings ever be too big? Well, I was gonna say last time how interesting I find it that you named it Scout Squad Delta I. If you had named it Delta Scout Squad I it would seem more consistent IMO with military convention (alpha squad, delta squad)-- and the flight from this convention is often used to seem more space-aged. In fact, even if you called them Scout Squad Delta, it doesn't seem as space-aged. By adding two counters (like Delta/Omega and I/x) together, it seems like there must be millions of them (what about Squad Delta 18, right?)-- but it still seems that there would be large divisions of any said patrol or army like Alpha, Beta, Gamma, Delta, of which there would be scout squads in each. Thus it seems (in my opinion) that Alpha scout squadrons and Delta scout squadrons would exist as opposed to scout squadrons as a separate division of the army separated into alpha, delta, etc divisions.

In other words, it seems scout squadrons are a function of sections of the army, although division may be a function of scout squadrons. In that case, there should be a counter on each IE: a counter for which division of the army, and a counter for which scout squadron. As I said: Delta Scout Squadron I :P. Still, I didn't want to say anything because it was such a nice image. Frankly, I liked the old one as much, but you gotta appease the masses! Anyways, I hope that made sense. All the best!

I love the sun, I have a feeling it's going to exsplode or are consuming the energy from the surrounding. I think that maybe the rings on the planet should be more transparent, I'm not sure though.

for a perspective issue, try dimming the stars shinning through the rings. after all, they should appear as if they are in front of the rings. erase them slightly to give that distorted appearance of starlight passing through ice.. etc..

I like it, really! I was going to add it to my favs but I do not like the "radial motion blur" from the bright star and around it. But that is art and what you wanted to do is up to you and a lot of people seems to like it too!

Its nice and all and the change makes it much better but I still feel the ring is to solid and perfectly circular, sort of takes the "realism" away from it.

ich find es sehr gut ;)

als verbesserungsvorschlag: den grün-roten lens-flare schwächer. und ein größeres shuttle oder ein paar näher beieinander, quasi ne flotte. ein bisschen fehlt das richtige "motiv", das man als erstes erblickt...

aber wie immer: sehr gute arbeit
