New Mercury by ZwordArts New Mercury by ZwordArts
Around one of the oldest space colonies of humanity, New Mercury is a big asteroid field which is perfect for young pilotes to learn to fly their spaceships. New Mercury is with 7 Moons also one of the biggest colonies of humans. It was colonised only 3035 years a. chr. when the new space gate technology was freshly discovered.

Huh, something new. Worked on it about 5 hours on a size of 4000x2328 in Gimp. Everything is selfmade.
Hope you like it.

this artwork very much follows laws about how lighting would work and its very captivating with the space debris and the nebula catches the eye making it seem as if its a picture from a ship, the planetary artwork is well made and looks realistic from the land masses to the shadows on dark side. the space crafts though blurry look nice after all they would be when moving, and the trails look good based on theory. the planet seems a bit familiar thought, but all in all its appealing to the mind and is visually engaging, so from an honest opinion i love it.
What do you think?

Beautiful!

Also the planet in the background bears a striking resemblance to the "Legendary Planet" seen at the end of Halo 3 and during the Halo 4 trailer.

The motion blurs in the foreground are a nice touch, though I'd love to have a clearer image of one of the ships.

Nice stuff. Are you a fan of Alistair Reynolds or Iain Banks? I've read almost everything by both of them.

very cool, love the nebula and the asteroids, just wish I knew how to do them myself.

can you tell me how you made your planet look spherical? or is that one of the moons in the distance?

pretty ballin, nice piece! How did you make the asteroids? I'm still looking for ways to make believable ones...
I would say that the "civilization lines" on the planet look rather flat compared to the rest of the planet, it would probably blend better if they had a bit more curvature to them.

Hey man cool one, really appreciate the background, nebula and the planet looks great. There is just a tiny little thing that bugs me a bit, the smallest spaceship in the middle which seems to go in front of the large asteroid; and the biggest asteroid in the foreground has a too fadish color to me, compared to those that are much far away, the lighting is a bit weird. I think with some more contrast and a bit darker it would be better despite the movement blurring. I hope this is a fair criticism as I really like what you do dude! cheers!
