Well folks, I've been inactive for awhile, but my love for SC has not faded a single bit.

When I left off, I was working with planet art. Similar to the HD planets, dczanik usesfor the HD mod. Well, the reason I was inactive, is because I moved to art school!!!

And now I feel I'm getting better. SO, this thread will be used to track my progress. The images in this post will be the images I was working on when I became inactive. Then I'll repost with an image I JUST finished. And as I progress, I'll add more. My hope is to get critiqued by the fan base.

Also, before we start with the constructive criticism, I KNOW I USED TOO MUCH LENS FLARE!!! But like I said, these are from when I just started. any new images will not contain lens flare...

So, I present to you my arts! (I am aware that is grammatically incorrect :] )

This image is where I'm at now. I just finished it. So critique away!

This is a populated Redux world, orbited by an unpopulated Selenic world. (Similar to Arcturus 1)

Great job MO! These are some pretty sexy planets you got there :)-smf

I would love to see how you make a Xenolithic world with an Ultramarine moon and blue star.

Awesome work there!

Guess I'll be the first one to critique - I think the stars shining through the atmosphere need to be much more blurred. And have different shine/hue/intencity/whatever to them, as on some of the pictures the stars appear way too uniform.

Are you refering to the tier one images? Or the newest one? Because, either way, I don't like the stars. I'm still working on perfecting them though. So I'll try to make better ones with the requests for Treasure and Xenolithic Worlds.

Welp, I was only able to finish one of the requested planets. This is the treasure world:

The stars aren't much better, though... Personally I don't know if I like the way the orange (Oceans?) look. I think I should have made them darker. Anywho, I wasn't able to start the other one because I have some homework to get finished. I'll work on it some tonight though. Stay tuned!


Edit: I made this one also. I dunno.
