Well just to return the favor.
The merging of the Photographs with the space is more than comic is ludicrous, the low res clouds look too grainy.
Icould say your planets need some work but since those are just spherized sattelite photos of earth well ..instead you need to learn how to do planets first. The greenish nebula and starfield also look like some stock clouds merged in there without any taste, those triangular bits of asteroind look copied and pasted several docen times & look like bits of broken pencil, finally the starfield is just boooring and to top it all the pinkish cloud smeared on top of the leaft peak its just patetic it looks like you did it on MS paint.
Cheers.

Seeing as this was made on a school computer, I only had access to a few sites and stock photographs. The landscape has some shabby clone stamping to it, and the clouds are indeed messy. As for the planet, I did as you said start off with a satellite photo, but I started adding a bit of variety to it by getting textures of paint, rock and other such things in order to make it seem unique. I then desaturated it all and recolorised it myself, similar to the methods described in alyn's planet tutorial, which is very useful. I then used some cloud pictures I had taken and merged them together and spherized them to create planet clouds. Your own planets look a lot like slightly varied satellite photos, so I don't see what your problem is here [link] ;). As for the nebula, you claim that it is there without taste, and I respect your opinion regarding that matter. I agree with you on the asteroids, the school computers are, to be frank, total shit and I could not get anything worthwhile to go there. I am considering getting something like 3DS Max or C4D to do better in the future. The starfield wasn't meant to be the main focus so I didn't put too much effort into it I admit =P. The pinkish cloud is actually just another merged cloud, I don't know why its pink though. :P

You could say that you did this just to return a nice critique, but judging from the general tone I'm guessing that you were angry regarding my comment and now wish to take revenge. I thank you for your critique, because it has given me a few ideas for the future. In conclusion, grow up and learn to take some negative comments.

To return a nice critique, there has to be one in the first place, yours is no critique or a technical suggestion as to how to improve anything, yours is a childish comment of somebody that doesn’t have anything else to do but trash somebody else’s piece. Most great space pieces are done solely with Photoshop; so not having 3ds max is irrelevant, if you have access to the web and Photoshop you are all set, the rest is talent, which is not included in either 3ds max or C4D installation disks. I am content with great comments from great artists that know what the hell they are talking about; yours is just annoying and came at the wrong time of day. So don’t give yourself to much importance because you don’t have any.

"The meteor impact looks kinda comic like and fake. Your planets could use a little more color work to give them some more life"

Please point out the part that is childish.

According to your user page, you are 36. Lets take a step back shall we? You are a 36 year old who posts digital art on an art site. Thats fine. You are also a 36 year old that gets worked up about someone saying something negative about your work after you publish it on a PUBLIC site with the setting "Critique Welcome". Perhaps you should cool it?

Maybe I am 36, maybe I am not, maybe it’s just a typo, maybe I am 89, maybe I am 20. So what does my age matter?
As far as I can detect, you are the one getting all worked up about it, because I didn’t swallow your critique, and quietly allow you to say whatever you please.
It is a public site, and I am a paying customer of this site, and as that, in this public site, there are rules, common sense and respect to each other, virtues which you do not have.
Critique welcome?, yes CRITIQUE something you do not know about.
Perhaps you should pay attention to your suggestion and cool it yourself.

Your age matters in that it reflects on roughly how mature you should be. A 36 year old (though I have my doubts as to whether that is really how old you are) would be able to say something along the lines of "thanks for the tip" rather than explode in a tidal wave of immature mayhem.

As far as I can detect, you are the one getting all worked up about it, because I didn’t swallow your critique, and quietly allow you to say whatever you please.

Lets just take a look at your reply shall we?

"Oh thank you very much for stopping by and taking the time to step on my piece and smear it with your gracefull remarks, I guess you are a Top rated space artist like Alyn or something like that.....oh no hold on I just browsed your gallery and you are just an foskolop, with Artmatic voyager and some free preset worlds, well figures."

I don't think I need to say anything about who is getting worked up here.

It is a public site, and I am a paying customer of this site, and as that, in this public site, there are rules, common sense and respect to each other, virtues which you do not have.

Which rules did I break? Where did I lack common sense? When did I disrespect you? If anything, it is you who is doing all the disrespecting.

Critique welcome?, yes CRITIQUE something you do not know about.

Feel free to patronize all you wish, but the fact remains that my comment was done as a tip, not as a personal insult.

Round and round we go.
FACT : your comment "The meteor impact looks kinda comic like and fake. Your planets could use a little more color work to give them some more life " It is not a tip, it is not even critique, you are just dismissing my piece as comic like and fake.
Where the hell is the tip there? If you choose to qualify my work of days as "comic and fake" certainly I will take it as a personal insult.
And here is the end to it, you can write to yourself from now on, unless you are ready to apologize.

The meteor impact looks slightly comic and fake. Your planets are monocolor. Who said anything about the whole piece being junk? Its a nice image, I just felt that those parts needed improving.


Oh and please don't do any "Its over because I SAY SO" bullshit.
