Son Of Cosmos by aRchAng3lZz Son Of Cosmos by aRchAng3lZz
One of my biggest dreams is to see a view like that. And this system is like the dream one for me.

This is my entry to the new wacom contest. I have no illusions for a win but I guess I can try just for the fun of it.

I will add some wallies later. They will be only widescreen because of the ratio.

Inspired somehow by =JoeJesus Go give him some love! :D
4k wide original.

Edit: Added wallpapers: 1920x1200 and 1600x1200. Also I've put the preview image in the rar file

Added some more details to the image itself.
Nah some really minor adjustments :)

The music inspiration: Iniquity - Son Of Cosmos

Looking for original cover art for my upcoming Ambient Electronic Space music album Voyage.
Can I use this if crediting you?
Or commission something similar?

Nice contrasts in the overall dark image, I like it like that^^
did you use special brushes to do galaxies or is it all made with your skilled & crafty hands ? ;)

Nice one man!

The sun should really be brightest in the middle though, since that's where the density is the highest - still looks cool this way, took me a some time to even notice - so not sure you wanna change.

There's something about the planets bugging me too, can't really say what though. Perhaps give the shadows some color from the background. Again I'm unsure though.

A great piece nonetheless :)

I will rework the sun a little I guess. I like it the way it is now but I think to add some fractals to it to give it more details (or paint them :D) I gave the shadows a bit of the background colors. I set them on low opacity to make them just a bit visible because:
1) The shadows must be black whatever the background is.
2) On higher opacity the planets get flat and don't fit very well :)

If you notice something else please tell me :P

I really like that sun. I've given up on suns for some time, this is very inspiring. I'll probably try to imitate this.

The sun is not so hard to make. Check the gallery of =keepwalking07 There is a tutorial for suns. He uses mostly cloud images but I add some apophysis fractal flames (you can find some resources in my gallery and in dA's resources pages)

I rarely use tutorials. And if I do I normally find out that things work differently for me.

What I needed was the idea about the distribution of brightness. Now, considering that you see a lot more surface area in a section of your field of view than in a section of the same size in the centre of the sun, it makes sense and it's clear why all my sun attempts had this wrongness about them.

Lovely colour, my dream is to see that rich red ambience from the sun illuminating the sky at night, how cool would that be? :lol:

Sun's when close up can look cool with that "glowing edge" but when the whole disk is visible from afar it kinda makes it looks like a glowing donut :donut: maybe this would be been better if the Sun was more uniformly-lit, perhaps brighter in the middle than around the side :sun: still, it's a very nice peice :)
