You might experience some serverproblems while trying to access those links, as I did before. But just keep refreshing, you'll eventually get to see them =)



I'm not sure about the planetary rings though.
I like them.
On the one hand they do give the viewer a completely different point of view.
But on the other hand, some people don't like them.

lovely, i really like how the astronaut was drawn in with very little detain, rather than taking a photo and editing it in.

btw, is it me or are there VERY faint rings around the planet?

Starfield and planets are just friggin amazing man. The kosmonaut looks cool, too. But the smudgy stuff coming from his suit (probably jet things to make him able to move around) kinda ruin it for me =p
Oh and even thought it looks cool and I like it, how could the lensflare be stretched like that?
Anyway, another stunning piece, great job!

thanks, well those smudgy things were supposed to be the cones of light, that are fixed on the astromans helmet

You know what I'd actually like to see? A better-quality JPEG than this one. Must be awesome. This doesn't do it justice at all.

thx, but i had to save it in lower quality, because it would take way more than 1mb in a higher jpgquality

i think ill upload my works in a higher jpgquality in the future

Well what you can do is upload a full size high quality image and then set it so that what people see is smaller, but when they click the download button they can see the full size image.

Nice work dude, love the composition and feel of this. My only crit is that the guy is cut off at the bottom. I really feel he should be entirely visible.

Hmm...

I was shown this by a friend just now...

I have technical critiques but I'll refrain because I must address something even more important inside the art...

Often I've dreamed of what it would be like if God took me on a personal look at the universe he has crafted...

Time, distance, breath, life span... all meant nothing. Allowing me to see the universe as an observer of its magnitude. First hand.

I've had that dream since I was 13.

This image has represented that dream well and I want to remember it. An instant fav for me. Thank you for the spark of remembrance.

I love that sense of aloneness this picture gives off, plus it makes you feel small compared to the universe, which isn't necessarily a bad thing at all. :)

Good job :D
