Where Eagles Dare by TylerCreatesWorlds Where Eagles Dare by TylerCreatesWorlds
I've always loved the way the sun reflects of rivers and lakes so I wanted to capture that. I don't know how well I pulled it off but I gave it my best shot. I re-worked the layout and nebula like 10 times and could never find something I was really happy with.

Original dimensions 4500x2581

Moons done with 3ds max
Planet and space done in Photoshop
Atmosphere made with Terragen

Terrain and cloud textures gathered from NASA.

Woooo! So this is my very first critique :), so I apologize in advance if I say anything that might upset you. :hug:

I love everything about this piece. Details of the planet are top-notch, the nebula looks beautiful, the colors and lighting look very natural, and the starfield is well done. It's amazing, very realistic.

Vision: Perspective of the planet is great, plus the position of the larger moon and angle of the sun makes you feel that you're really flying across this planet in a spaceship. It also has that classic sunrise in space feel.

Originality: The nebula in the center is a unique touch, but I've seen many images like this.

Technique: Haha, I'm dumbfounded. =D The technique is excellent. Great work on the planets' details, I love how you made the suns reflection on its surface, and the colors and shape of the nebula is very well done.

I want to suggest one thing about the sun though. If you dim your computers brightness a little, it looks a cold, over saturated orange patch. Using a warmer orange color (a bit more toward the yellow's side) for the streaks and some more detail around the core should fix that and make it hot 8-)

:peace:

So.. Really great work. The planet looks amazing. I read that you use NASA textures.. I don't know why but I almost always use my own textures.When I look on this pic I think it's tme to change source of textures because I never create so realistic planet using my textures..
It deserve for a DD! That's all:)

Thank you. Yeah when your working on a planetary view from this level, NASA images are really the best source for textures. Plus they are free for public use. And they have a lot of hi res images available

Well thank you, you should suggest it for a DD :)

Whoa the planet's texture is really HD... Which terragen did you use to make the atmosphere?

By atmosphere which part do you mean? Initially I thought your clouds were made with Terragen, is it?
Reply

No the clouds were a nasa image. Just the blue glow on the edge of the planet was terragen
