    Sid's Newborn Planet - Final!

    Here's the final along with 2 closeups. Story is that a bunch of people got their planet blown up and they've been refugees for a long time. They're just arriving at their new world, which is still under construction .

    If I had the time, I would have made the ships a bit less jagged and angular, and added some wear and tear.

    I think it looks wrong, because the planet is as good as finished already so we dont see much of building up.
    I remember the pictures from the construction of the second death star.

    How would they construct it ? Just piling up a lot of earth, sand and rocks from somewhere else ? Or more like a construction ? With metal-skeletons or such things ? Or maybe pre-constructed parts ?

    Well...Maybe making that planet look like a womb. And unborn child in it. Just thinking!

    Anyway, looking good already))

    Liking the concept but your angle seems odd for this concept, it looks they are arriving some where with rage. needs more construction feel to it. G L

    You could do an asteroid field with one of the asteroids being terraformed, like swathes of greenery and oceans etc. spreading across its surface. The other asteroids would be references for what it was like before so you know its being created and not destroyed.

    I like that last concept compositional-wise but there's not enough focus on the planet and if you hadn't explained it I wouldn't know what was happening.

    Bear in mind you don't need to include the whole asteroid / planet for us to know what it is. A section of planet could be just as effective, or even more so because there'd be more detail.

    i like the angle of the last one very much,but i agree the planet needs to be nearer.

    Wow, i think that the update focus on the planet better. Was wondering if it will look even better if the planet is HUGE. Like you can only see a little more than a quarter of the planet from that view.

    Whatever it is, there's still so much improvement from the first post. Keep it going dude!

    Dont know how I missed your thread - great work! Love the scale and epic atmosphere you are creating. I think the last version is the strongest in terms of compostion and the viewing position is much improved. I think, as others have said, that showing just a limb of the planet and increasing its size still further would be more dramatic and make for a more interetsting composition - it would also make more space for other background elements. The complementary colour shceme is also very nice.

    Mind made worlds.
