Cold Sun by TRAEMORE Cold Sun by TRAEMORE
My Artwork for this weekend.
Made like all the others before but this time with a 21k cloud map! (you're not seeing much from it because it's scaled down but what matters is, that I have it to improve my artworks in the future :) )

Played around with the lightning effects and the colour itself.

I HAVE A DD! AWESOME!!
thanks to ^Infinite705 for featuring me!

:iconjaevairny:
Digital 3D illustration is not an easy thing to do especially with sci fi type subject matter. I have done this myself and it always comes out looking hokey. You have to have the best software and you really have to know what you are doing. It helps to have a good working knowledge of art concepts in general and this piece demonstrates strength in that area through use of texture and layout. It includes a lens flare without being cheesy which is kind of the holy grail of digial artwork. The texture resembles oil brushwork but it is obviously digital creating a very surreal quality that really adds to the piece. The title really drives home the point that this is sci fi artwork but other than that this could have been a photograph taken by a space telescope, it is so realistic. Nice work
What do you think?

Wahrlich wenn ich space Bgs so malen könnte *.*
das DD hast du dir wirklich verdient!

Dankeschön :)
Übung macht den meister! Ich war auch mal ganz am anfang ;)
Um sowas zu lernen solltest du dir einfach reihenweise tutorials zum thema space art anschauen und daraus deine eigenen Techniken entwickeln. Das hat mir persönlich am Anfang sehr geholfen und mir eine Basis gegeben, auf der ich stetig weiter aufgebaut hab.

Gib niemals auf und versuch dich stätig zu verbessern!

Und falls du hilfe bei irgendetwas brauchst, frag mich ruhig ;)

Ja, Tuts können mitunter sehr hilfreich sein^^
Ich hab am anfang einach auf gut Glück losgemalt, und naja, meine Monde sahen aus wie überdimmensionierte, fliegende Fleischklößchen, wie eine Freundin es so treffend formuliert hat.
Mittlerweile hat sich die situation etwas gebessert.
Ich hab eine bitte das Thema betreffend, könntest du mir sagen was du davon hällst, und mit evtl. ein Paar tipps geben wenn es verbesserungswürdige Dinge geben sollte? [link]
Ich hab es zwar so gut es geht von einem Screenshot abgemalt, würde aber, wenn ich es das nächste mal nochmal mache, etwas mehr, sagen wir mal eigene Elemente mit einbringen.

Übrigens danke für den Watch :)

Oho! Sieht schon mal sehr vielversprechend aus :)
zu allererst, finde ich, dass das Bild im gesamten zu dunkel wirkt. Beispielsweise kommen mir die Belichtung der Normandy, die Atmosphäre des Planeten sowie die Lichtquelle (welche technisch sehr beeindruckend ist :) ) ein wenig grau vor.
versuch einfach mal ein bisschen mehr mit ebenen bei Lichteffekten zu experimentieren ;), das könnte zum Beispiel beim Lensflare weiterhelfen. Stell diesen beim nächsten mal auf eine eigene Ebene und gib dieser den Ebenenmodus, "Negativ Multiplizieren" oder "linear abwedeln" (schau einfach mal welcher dir mehr liegt). Damit wirken die Effekte leuchtender bzw. heller. Weiter zum Hintergrund: variiere bei den Sternen mehr mit der Größe (ich würde dir eine Spannweite von 1 bis maximal 5 Pixeln empfehlen). füge beispielsweise einen nebula hinzu um die Szene noch ein bisschen interessanter zu gestalten.

Und das wichtigste zum Schluss: Lass dich von anderen Werken inspirieren! Schau dir an, wie Andere verschiedene Punkte angegangen sind und überlege, wie du das in dein bild einbringen kannst ;)

Ich hoffe, dass ich dir helfen konnte :)

Danke dir für Hilfe^^
Das problem ist nur, dass ich bei sämtlichen effekten selbst experimentieren muss, da ich kein PS hab, sondern nur mit SAI arbeite.
Werd mir trotzdem deinen Rat beim nächsten Bild zu Herzen nehmen und es versuchen :) Immerhin muss man es auch mit ein wenig rumgespiele mit Airbrush und Co. auch schaffen, gute space BIlder hinzubekommen. (zumindest hoffe ich das)

Aber ich denke, du kriegst auch ohne photoshop gute bilder hin, wenn du weiter übst :)
was für ein grafik-tablet hast du eigentlich?

Is np..hab mich dran gewöhnt. Finds persönlich auch besser am Ende eines Bilder sagen zu können: Das ist alles selbst gemacht! Als mich auf irgendwelche Funktionen oder Schablonen oder Brushes zu stützen. (aber vor allem ist mir das Ding zu teuer, un im Inet findet man keine guten, funktionierenden Cracks)

Ich hab so ein kleines quadratisches Bamboo one von Wacom.
Hat schon 3 Jahre auf dem Buckel :XD:
