Marvin by Baro Marvin by Baro
I seem to keep coming back to spaceart. Been working on my new website lately and just had to get away from coding for a few hours. This has been in the making for longer than that, but finally got down to finishing it. Most of the work today was on the ring and the area underneath the planet. The formations near the sun have been there almost since the beginning.

Since i started studying and then working in design i have picked up a different set of creative skills and i feel it has taken me some time to balance between the two different approaches. I admit there was some internal conflict to wether i should or even wanted to keep going with this. You live and you find new things that draw you in. In the end i don't consciously choose to do spaceart, it is just something i find myself doing. I think because i know how it works and it offers me a form of creative expression that is very different from what i do on a day to day basis (and love doing).

People who follow all my submissions have noticed that i don't upload that frequently anymore, so the above is an attempt at an explanation for that. I do think my work has gotten better over time though, so it's quality over quantity...

Original size is over 5000pixels wide, in order to get enough detail in there.

Hope you like it! Glad to get a submission in at the beginning of 2012 :D

-- Thx for the DD

EDIT: Added now as a Wallpaper-Package and deleted the border around the image. Should cover all resolutions including iphone.

Incredible coloring on this. It really captures a celestial quality.
orux100 Featured By Owner Feb 27, 2014
awesome, i'd love to learn to do some space art, may I use this as wallpaper?
Baro Featured By Owner Feb 28, 2014
sure, private use is no problem whatsoever. And in case you want to get into spaceart, there are loads of tutorials here on deviantart or around the net that will get you started.

Wow, how long does it takes to draw it?

Very sweet man. It's a totally different take on planetary rings, and I love it.

Still waiting patiently for the WIP you showed me some weeks/moths back.

Always a pleasure seeing you submit new things Baro.
Baro Featured By Owner Feb 14, 2012

Oh sweet, love this work.
Violet-tear-streaks Featured By Owner Jan 27, 2012  Hobbyist
SO BEAUTIFUL! The colours are so vivid. I think that the black border does not do this picture justice though. In my opinion I think it will look better without.
Baro Featured By Owner Jan 28, 2012
you know what? i agree. once i saw it inside the deviantart page-design, which is much lighter than the backdrop i had whilst working on it, it felt wrong. will be corrected...
Violet-tear-streaks Featured By Owner Jan 28, 2012  Hobbyist
It looks amazing now. It's nice you changed it~ I just think that the black border seems to set a limit on the atmosphere instead of allowing it to be more mysterious and vast. And it's space! Which doesn't really have the limitations human's can imagine in terms of quantity. Thanks!
