Demystified by cosmicbound Demystified by cosmicbound
Before your very eyes, fooled from view, it seemed like an exact clone of something you knew very well. & then slowly, as time went by, the chance to see truth came upon your eyes, accept the possibility of knowledge; knowledge to see the truth. & now, it transpires before your very eyes, something so alien, something so completely different from what you thought you knew. A whole new experience, the truth is finally before you.

--

This piece, & partly its inspiration, is relatively inspired by a story/song by ~BrimstoneVomit, he asked if I would like to make some album art for his songs, I heard one of his songs 'The Alien' which had a story, I quite liked the song & it went very well with the story, the story is the key inspiration to the piece; I've tried to picture the planet as it transpires from what seems like earth, to the strange alien planet, as described in the story, You can check out the song/story here: [link]

Feedback is always appreciated.

Created in Photoshop CS1, at a resolution of 3000×4500.

Thanks. Usually right on 10k, I don't have the hardware to go any higher than that without crippling the system, hah.

I completely understand u. even to crop on those sizes it takes infinity.....I hate it. and I have a laptop so it's even worse. I'm seriously thinking about a powerful desktop. 3gb ram ddr3 and some gforce and maybe flash drive or 2 hards in raid mode :)
we'll se next year....now it all costs too much. compliments again on your work mate !

why have you not corrected the black ring around the plannet?
would actually be a decent pic if errors like this were avoided

very nice work! I love the colors and the planet-texture looks good. But I think the whole work is a little bit to sharp...
