Decided I'd release some wallpapers because I liked the impact and nebulae I did in Anxiety
This is 1600x1200 but feel free to resize it down so that it fits your desktop.
Please tell me what you think
I really like it overall, but I have some things that bug me, too:
first, the bad points:
The impact debris trails, as in the darker trails close to ground zero, seem very unequal. What I mean is, it doesn't look like it has a very equal or random distribution; the impact debris area could be rotated in the negative direction about fifteen degrees and it would be perfect. The impact itself doesn't seem aligned to the curvature of the larger planet, is all.
and now the many good points:
This is an extremely detailed and well-executed space scene, texturing = perfection, and starry background is beautiful. I notice that you have motion cues around the impact, with blurs, this is very nice. The small asteroid belts around the planet are a nice little thing too (although it probably took more than a few mins to do).
Overall, this is a wonderful piece, and you definately need to make more outer space scenes!
Thanks Made entirely in Photoshop 7 and my tablet. I wrote a walkthrough on how I do my nebulae (which arent really visible in this one, take a look at the nonwallpaper version of Anxiety) and there are quite a few planet, impact and probably starfield tutorials on the net.
