Planet by MacRebisz Planet by MacRebisz
Just a Planet. With 2 moons. And rings.

I wanted to make some "classic" space art for some time :)

Painted in Photoshop, some texture brushes used, special thanks to =tsarye for his awesome nebula brushes [link] and for =ViciousLint for some suggestions :)

This is an awesome piece. I don't have much to say about what could be changed. My personal opinion is that the dark side of the planet is a bit....messy? I think the white spots are unnecessary, and kind of take away from the beauty of the awesome planet you made. You have the composition down excellent, but again, I think removing the competition for attention (the white spots) would really boost people's initial reaction to the coloring in your main planet. You wouldn't even have to get rid of them all together. Maybe just make them not so...bright? Less is more. Just my two cents. Otherwise, I love it.
What do you think?

Very nice! A bit too much shadow on the main planet, with a bit too much highlighting on it as well (no signs of civilization on the light side, but lights on the dark side?) and definitely too dark of a dark side on the background planet.
the faint ring is lovely, but a slightly wider one would be more visible as it crosses the planet - or maybe just light that part of the ring more. Perhaps add some more small landscape features on the sunlight side of the planet, and apply the light filter on the background planet at a slightly different angle, try to imagine the plane they're rotating on and where the sun is - it shouldn't be the same for both, in my opinion

Hey! This look sosooooooooo beautiful! My name's Jacqui, and I'm working on this project for my journalism class. I need to design a website and put pictures on it. My website's about a game I came up with where everyone lives on a planet that looks like this. Is it okay if I put this on the site? If so, how do you want me to credit you? Also, it's due tomorrow at 4 PM central...if you could give me your answer by then, that would be awesome! Thanks!

Wonderful piece. Contrary to the critique, I think the city lights visible on the planet's dark side is a great feature that we don't see enough of in space art, and invokes a greater sense of science fiction over simple depiction. The small moon visible on the upper right creates a great counterpoint to the domination of the world in the foreground, and also displays a sort of Caravaggio-style tenebrism. The nebula and background star field are excellent as well--present, but not overpowering. My only real criticism lies with the rings, as they seem spindly, too bright, and just a bit "off;" although they do provide a nice frame for the planet. Cutting off the top of the world is a nice effect too, creating a sense of movement, as if we were in a cockpit of a starship just arriving. Overall, love the piece.

im guessing those white dots on the dark side are lights from cities? perhaps the planet is inhabited. eh' don't matter. good work!

Hm. I like it. I like it a lot. It's a good return to classic space art scenes for you. However, something about the shadow of the ringed planet seems wrong. I can't quite put my finger on what it is precisely, though I think it may be related to the planet texture itself.

Still, good stuff :)

Reviewers wanted;

Amazing, It's a living Saturn.

I've currently finished posting my 3rd Super hero/SciFi comic and I have several splash panels into showing planets. I'd be greatful to hear your open on them and the other elements of Scifi in my story.
