This is the result of a weekend of non-stop collab work between +Dinyctis and I.

This was a very hard piece to work with. The full canvas size was 10000x7500 pi @ 200dpi which is the same dimensions as a 50x30 inch paper. I wanted to make the biggest piece i've ever created. Some of you are probably thinking why such a ridiculous large scale piece. Well i wanted to get a print of it to put on my wall. We both learnt a lot in making this, from the point of how easy it is to create normal sized planet and to how pathetically hard it is to create a planet large enough to fill most of the lower right corner and still maintain some level of detail. Thanks to + Dinyctis skills we managed to pull it off, i dont think i have the experience and hardware to create such a large level planet.

We tried to give the audience a feel of a new colonized system in the outer region of our galaxy, the only problem is after adding 3 ships and tried making a good establishment projection, they all looked out of place which i got bummed about. I was looking forward to having ships flying from planet to planet. In the end we realised that the only good ship was the one we left in. We ended up blurring it for speed effects.

We've been over this piece many times to find errors and we've removed all of them. If you dont like a part of the piece, please dont do your usual thing of, oh, thats in the wrong place, or that doesn't look good their. We appreciate your feedback but this was made how we wanted it and we're happy the way it is. We even spent an hour making a quick sketch on how we wanted it to be laid out so we were really making an effort.

Excellent work. It would probably take me a life time to get that much detail and patience with my work.

Great one...the only thing I've got negative, is that there are too much details on the ship. it should be almost totally silouted against the sun...

other than that, amazing.

hey thats awesome
especially the facts about the file itself :D

curious as to how much RAM you have on your machine
and what CPU you have?

i only have 512MB RAM right now and this piece im working on (3508px X 4280px, 300dpi) makes my Photoshop struggle already.

thanks for any insight

512 ram, 1.7 XP

Dinyctis was the one who put the stuff together in the end because hes got a much faster computer.

I'm not seeing what you did in this piece, it looks like all +dinyctis work then you threw a ship in it.

I agree with :shirosynth: about it being cluttered.

Yes you might have developed but its also important to have your own style.

and open space is good if you balance it out right.

Well then mate, i guess that proves to you that i have seriously developed thanks to diny. It was fairly half half work. Not mostly him, or mostly me. It was an equal share.

And think about it though, you know how picky people are about "open space" if it wasnt as full as it is they would start complaining about that. :shrug:

haha, ya sizing a detail 50x30 inch down to 1600x1200 pixel wallpaper, you do lose a lot of the available detail because its too small to see.
