Remembrance by ViridianMoon Remembrance by ViridianMoon
This was done mostly in Bryce 5, but I did some heavy touch-ups in PS7, as well as adding the planet.

Ohh sad about that guys father.

Anyway to the piece:

Actually not a bad picture, let me elaborate:

Render:
Quite a nice render The water & terrain works quite well.

Photoshopped Render Bits:
Well, not bad, however, if you wanted the render to be more convincing (especially since this looks like a healthy terrestrial planetscape) You could implement tree's from stocks & such,
also your work with the waterfall is not bad, looks liek you smudged the waterfall? eitherway, overlay some textures like rocks underneath thewaterfall, also implementing rocks like its hanging out of the waterfall could add some nifty nifty depth :)

The planet in the sky is not bad, the blending of it into the sky is good,
it hides the often overused look of a greg-martin-tutorial type.
the colours a little funky, but not to bad, the ring is ok, but it dosnt have solid edges - if you observe a real ring, they have an edge, rings,
yours is like a swirling gas or something,
a planet ring has edges, this is why we should hate twirl filter! :lick:

Colouration:
Seem nice & calm, gives an attitude to the image which is nice.
Serene & comforting :)
Good job on that.

All in all:
A nice calm terrestrial space scape piece that is quite well done, but could do with a few more improvements :)

Thanks much for the critique. I really appreciate it when someone takes the time to take a more in-depth look at my artwork and help me improve, especially from an artist as good as yourself. =D

(And, yeah, I did smudge the waterfall. It looked pretty bad after the render; it was sort of choppy and had some nasty bits of pink in it... x.x)

Well, I've taken note of everything you said. Perhaps I'll redo it, as you're quite right that it could use work. ^^; Again, thanks much. =D
