Firestorm by arisechicken117 Firestorm by arisechicken117
I proudly present to you the first of the :bulletpurple: Natural Beauty Series :bulletpurple: "Firestorm"

Spent an intense amount of time on specific planetary details and key aspects of star fields.

Enjoy :)

*UPDATE* Removed the odd white border :w00t: And made the nebulae on the bottom left more prominent and realistic. :thumbsup:

Overall an excellent piece, I think; I'm a sucker for orange, but I particularly appreciate this artist's adherence to realism while searching out something pleasant and fantastic. It's an issue I come across a lot in space art and science-fiction as well -- sprucing up the art or the writing or the film with bad science when the real thing was far better to begin with!

So, a planet large enough to tear up wandering moons and maintain rings long enough to have collected as many of this probably would have collected a lot of gas and therefore have an obscured surface (if any) but that's far from being a deal-breaker. We're just talking odds, here -- though, given the 'rays' of sunlight, there appears to be the suggestion of dust in this solar system... and that, to me, suggests a planet that would have grown an impenetrable atmosphere.

I feel like there may be a slight misalignment between the planet's day-side and the ring, and I also don't see the ring's shadow on the surface, but otherwise this is still far better than I usually see. All the moons' day-sides also line up realistically, and the narrower band of planet-shadow on the ring seems well explained by the presence of a more distant, perhaps secondary, sun hidden behind the planet.

In terms of human eye limitations, the presents of two bright stands and well-lit planets and moons would prevent one from being able to see the nearby nebulae, but there's nothing to say this image would have been 'naturally' captured by the human eye.

All these nitpicks aside, this is well done; crisp, clean, and far more realistic than most. My only other personal observation was that as a potential print-buyer, I would be dissuaded by the presence of a title and white border. Many others would disagree, I'm sure, but that's just me. When it comes to scenery, I rather like an unobstructed view.

So, there you have it. Keep up the good work!

Amazing. My favourite colours too! Like others I love the light rays and the realism. Sometimes it's so tempting to see space as all dark and full of blue :P

Yes, blue and orange/red are my favorite schemes. Red/orange is like fierce, dangerous, or warm, and blue is rather calm, serene and beautiful
