where we go in our mind by Baro where we go in our mind by Baro
i couldn't resist finishing this one off after all, and seeing 4 lessons where cancelled at uni today, i had a little extra time. i probably should have spent it working on my projects, but it had to be done :P.

Anyway I have been working on this one for quite some time, never getting to a satisfactory result. I think i started around febuary.

Nebula is partly painted partly texture work. Extensive work on the planet textures. i see possible improvement there though (i hope).

Other than usually i worked in reverse for this piece. i started with the background, then went on to the smaller of the two giants, then added the bigger one (which went through various stages, but in the end this is pretty close to the first version of it). The Nebula/Stardust/Cloud was last if you don't count smaller details.

I may upload multiple versions of this, as some are very different from others, but this is the "official" final result.

Thx for viewing. Hope you like it.

Thx to *SamODJ for your help in the earlier stages (you may not even remember :P)

This painting is tremendously beautiful. I have a proposition for you, one I will pay for if you can make it real. It will be fun. The painting I have in mind is the skydiving between a major city on one world to the capital of another city on a nearby world. Filled with the details of extreme ascension through the atmosphere near a coastal city to a huge city with grand technology. You have the skill to do it.

Enjoyed a lot of your works, but I really love this one, must be the special lighting... or maybe there's no reason, only a feeling :)

Look great. The only thing I would tweak is the flare. Since flaring is caused by the camera, that streak of light would extend upwards as well as downwards, partially obscuring that central body. Put simply, I guess you could say the flare effect is always in front of what the camera sees. The same could be said of the brighter flare at the top of the image.

I love this, has such a unique feel, and I like the odd placements of the planets... very different, the lighting on them shows that they are extreeeemely far away from the light source. Nebula is outstanding aswell! Nice smooth feel to this piece, awesome work my friend.

Softness works on the planets lighting setup but maybe a tad sharpening of just the texture layers would help. Overall, even though the background gases are lacking, the overall ambiance of the work carries it through.

Baro Featured By Owner Jul 2, 2008
i agree on the gases. but somehow i tend to only notice flaws like that after submitting. don't ask me why...

ah well. thx for the critique :).
