Beautiful Damnation by dylanxedge Beautiful Damnation by dylanxedge
Before I say anything about this piece, I just want to express how much fun I had making it :) It was truly a stepping stone for me, as all of my pieces are, but this one was different. For once, I feel like I actually made a space scene, rather than just a space piece.

Anyway, here we have your typical space scene; Planets, stars, asteroid, nebula.. oh, and the dead guy. For such a tragic way to go, I would have to say it's by far the most beautiful way for your corpse to spend it's eternity.

I want to give some of the credit to ~ChrisCold for his awesome asteroid pack, and also *SurfindaMatrixStk for the awesome stock photo of the dead guy ;) (He's not actually supposed to be dead, but he definitely is in this :D)

I also just want to thank every single person in advanced for taking the time to even view this piece, and I want to share some extra gratitude in advanced for those of you who comment or fav :)

EDIT: Changed the lighting a bit to make it seem more bold, added a lot more detail to the nebula, added more debris to the asteroid belt, added more detail to the star field (which I will probably change more), and fixed the smaller planets a bit.

Thank so much to ^taenaron and =Lizzys for the DD!! Just so you all know, I appreciate every single one of you who are faving or adding this to your collection.. unfortunately, there are just soo many of you that I can't get to all of you and thank you personally. However, take this as a personal thank you!

Thank you :) Well, as you can see I've had quite a bit of practice. Space Art is composed of fairly different techniques for everyone, but this piece is made up of several different textures, bits of painting, and a couple different tricks up my sleeve. ;)

I bet you were thinking "Well at least he'll have a nice view right?" Vision is the first thing to go in death. DX

Don't get the wrong idea though, I love this picture!

I really really like this piece. Unfortunately it doesn't look good as my desktop. :( I have a 1920 x 1200 native resolution and stretched... it looks grainy and pixellated. :( I did try though. hehe

I am curious as to how long it takes you to create each piece. I find this piece especially beautiful
Reply
:icondylanxedge:
dylanxedge Featured By Owner May 4, 2009  Student Digital Artist
It varies of course, of generally it will take me an average of 10-15 hours. But I have tend to only do a little bit at a time, so it can take me up to a week to finish one lol.

Thanks though :)
