Exotika II by Baro Exotika II by Baro
This is my submission to the Exotika 2 contest. hope i'm not too late. literally worked on this until the very last minute.

I started off with doing a lot of renders in terragen to find the best camera position. The terrain was created in worldmachine. All the rest was done in photoshop.

this picture was a real struggle. I allways had the composition looking pretty good imo, but it was really missing "it" if you know what i mean. A lot of trying out, moving around, deleting, redoing and staring at the screen in this one.

Tell me what you think.

Full View! You won't be able to capture the details from the resized thumb.

comments + :+fav:'s are very welcome :)

Tablet I presume?

I have just a mouse, but I'll try it anyways >.>

i don't have a tablet either. done with the mouse :). a tablet is great but overrated. you only really need it if the major part of your work is digital painting imo.

This one blew my hair back! :dizzy: At first look it feels like rocks are small and you could climb over in minute. On second look, if you suppose camera is in horizontal position, they look huge.
Barely visible details in sky kept me staring more than usual. There is no thing on this image that should be added or removed.
Planet on left side completes dark and mysterious atmosfere, and gives image smoothness it oherwise wouldn't have.
In my opoinion, this is a digital masterpiece.

I like it, but the big blue planet on the left takes away from the rest of it imo.
