Orphic by SamODJ Orphic by SamODJ
- Light, in such a form, was found rarely in these times. Shadows suffocate our...my lands, choking the little hope I have left. Ha! To sound so bitter now. Thats what years of exile will do to you. Still, there is something at work here. Something, for once, that means me no harm, no conflict. Something mystical, something orphic. -

Will save the description for now. Credit to sxc. for stocks used. Prints to be released in the near future.

I don't like this smoke, the cloudy nebula and the huge amount of stars. I don't know, because of that it kind of seems like low quality.
But It's an AWESOME piece of art.

I don't know if you aim for perspective in your art

but...

the zoom effect where there is a light source throws off the perspective

Erm but there is nothing you can do to stop them hitting that download button. Afterall thats why we post our art here - so it is available for uses such as desktops.

Lol.. i don't think that's the case. I mean that everybody submit their art so that people can download them. That's why there are different categories like wallpaper. But yeah you can't stop them downloading so what the heck. :D

Everything but the blue planet is magnificent. The planet seems too simple, with its surface fading out too soon to fit in with the top-notch lighting.

Ah...I love this wide view and the massive planet below. :clap: I actually like those dark, solid "cloud nebulae". They look like dark dust clouds...which there are plenty of in nebulous regions of space. I say keep 'em as they are. I like how they block out the stars behind...gives the impression that they are fairly close to this system. Excellent work!! :D :+fav:

Man you pump out orgasmic images fast, good to see. ;p Nice use of bordering + great atmosphere to the whole piece. The only noticeable thing i find to critique is that the nebulae colourations on the right seem a bit burnt in comparison to the rest of the piece. & im not quite sure whether i like that use of the smoke stock that much, seems a bit blurred, its not that bad though, but it does cutoff on the ends a bit soon. The depth is sweet though, it feels very 'vast' as you look at it. :thumbsup:

Interesting piece

however, I think the clouds on the side need a liiiiiiiiiittle bit of touching up.

other than that, great piece!

Nice! Though i'm not so sure about those dark clouds on the left, i mean you can really see that they're clouds, not spacedust/nebulae. U should try painting on them or blending more. =P

Over all great piece as always. :) :+fav:

I kinda see what you mean. Hmm not sure atm, I kinda like the fact they look solid and cloud like, but i'll pay attention if I revise the piece.
