Secrecy by sumopiggy Secrecy by sumopiggy
This is the second piece in my Universal Emotions series :D
I've been working on the new Space Artists webiste for the last week, and have had no time for art, but its finally finished to a point where I can have a break :D
This is what I come up with.
Made entirely in Photoshop in probably about 3-4 hours.
I think it looks great, was inspired by Greg Martin once again, and I can see how Ive improved :)
Please tell me what you think! I hope you like it :)
Oh and, FULL VIEW!! The preview does it no justice and you miss alll the precious details I spent so long on! :D :)
--
EDIT: I decided to change the stars a bit and add a few wee planets etc :) Much better now IMO :)

Man you've improved by leaps and bounds! The detail is really well attended to here and the color scheme fantastic. I think I will be looking to you for pointers when (if) I get a tablet. I'm sure those things make it much more fun, and maybe a bit easier when doing this type of work. Anyway, Nice work! :+fav:

The most fanntastic presentation of brushing skills on nebulae after Phoenix Nebula by *sirgerg.
Not the best compostion possible, but the execution is just perfect .

With the experience, we see flaws on so many works that semmed to be so perfectbefore, but also, we cann see all the details of a really perfect artwork :+fav:

Ahhh... the wonderful colours of blue and purple... How beautiful. I sat for a little while looking at the full-view, and I wondered; how the heck did he do that?! Then I checked what category you had put it in, and I went; darn... I had hoped for a painting, oil or something, but the light-shines made me doubt that. How long did this take to make? The veils of... dust (?) are very emotive. In this, I think you have caught the aura of secrecy - to hide behind a blinding masque.

Oh, and Anger was also brilliantly made. Looked like a face! ^_^ But Envy? Was it the little red star in the corner that was the envying one?

Thanks alot :)

I think it took around 4-5 hours if I remember correctly.

And the planet is envying all the beautiful nebulae around it :)

Ah, so the planet doesn't want to be a little ball of dirt, it wants to swirl and stuff?

your brushing technique is now superb. Commendations on that. There is only one thing that still irks me though. It's that textured look... as if you were painting on a thinly textured canvas. The ambience suffers because of it, makes it slightly more stale than it should be. If you could better the overall ambience so the nebulas looked more alive, then you'd quite literally be sitting on top of a pile.

I think its from the sharpening, I'll try some different things and see if I can reduce the effect, and add to the ambience.
Anyway, yea, I've learnt lots from this piece, and I think I will continue to as I complete the rest of the series :D
Thanks,
:)

Damn your attention to detail always gets to me. I really need a tablet!!! Beautiful work, especially in the small brushwork between colors where the black is leaking in. This really does hold a mood of secrecy so it fits very well with your execution.

Great job there! All you need is a good pc, drawing tablet and a good idea and you can make masterpieces. Again this is verry awsome, I can't wait till I get that tablet for x-mas. At least I got 1 gig of memory now :)

On some spots on the picture it looks like it has been painted traditionly. Maybe you can blur those hard edged spots just a verry little bit......... What am I talking about such a small little detail. Let me say this in one word:"Fantastic"

The swirls of the nebula is really giving that secrecy feeling, IMO...very nice brushing, and the lighting is well done--also contributes to the secrecy. I like the edits, as well.

yeha this is nice. I do however have criticisms, none really to do with the skill but the idea. It looks too similar to your other pieces with colour etc. I like the way you have this cloud begining to shroud the nebula and light, but i think you should emphisise the idea of secrecy even more because at the moment i dont get that complete idea about the piece.

Wondeful! I especially like the asteroid cluster at the top and the detail in the nebulae. You have improved a lot from your earlier works. I love your stylized look. It's refreshing after seeing the huge amount of "realistic" and generally unoriginal space scenery. Great work, I hope to see more, and better, stuff from you in the future.

I really like that asteroid belt bit, very impressive even though its not that big.

Gorgeous, man! And it really fits the emotion of secrecy, because so much of the color hides behind the clouds, while occasionally peeking through. Veerrrry nice. :clap:
