Sol by arisechicken117 Sol by arisechicken117
Finally the wait is over, I present to you my tribute to the beast itself, our sun, "SOL."

I knew this piece had to be epic so i spent a tremendous amount of time working on the proper textures for the sun as well as adding a couple sun spots. It also had to be bright without blocking out the detail of the sun. Overall, I am quite content with the piece. :nod:

Out of curiosity, what's the foreground object? Mercury? Vulcan?

this looks very good. the borders are a efects are very subtle and really make the image pop! critique requested? um, the comet? i think that's wht it is, below it i can see a smudge or someting...maybe im not seing what it's supposed to be but i would blend it out. also, some of the larger stars' shine has a little too hard a circle, which i would soften...maybe. i think it's something i would go back and forth on and ask my sister to decide for me.

Agh! It is so bright! My eyes burn! Good job with the lighting, it is definitely intense and you still retain planet detail and such.

Amazing work my friend. The sun is super bright but you can still see the detail in it's surface. I also love the nebula, very simple yet adds a lot to the piece. Great job.

indeed it looks worked, maybe I would make the light over the planet darker
