Rage of Silent Gods by ErikShoemaker Rage of Silent Gods by ErikShoemaker
This is an update of an old piece I made back in 2008. The update is quite huge and I actually like how it turned out, that's why I figured why not submit this as a new deviation?

Anyways, I'm incredibly busy due to uni stuff lately, so I hardly have time to create something. It's exhausting. .____.'

Wallpapers on my website! www.xkire.de

You can find the old version in my scraps:


As always, thanks for all the comments and favs! :)

This is awesome, just wondering but how did you make the space behind it??
Reply
:iconerikshoemaker:
ErikShoemaker Featured By Owner Jun 17, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
what exactly do you mean?
The nebula is painted in photoshop refined with a few textures to enhance the details. The stars are made with hundreds of tiny little lens flares.
Thank you!

Lol yeah sorry that wasn't the best way I could have worded that question but you answered it, I was just wondering how you highlighted and darkened parts of it, I'm just starting getting into space art haha

:iconerikshoemaker:
ErikShoemaker Featured By Owner Jun 22, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
okay glad I answered your question. Well you can do the highlighting with simple brushing in dark and bright colors and then switch the layer blending mode to soft light or something ;)

I love the star-filled backdrop! Just the right amount of stars with maximum necessary details---and the smoky feel of the universe looks very "omg is this a Hubble space shot?"

Really cool effect overall--I enjoyed the depth to the growing crater in the dying planet, very 3D visually (:

Starfield! That's the word I was looking for ^^;

'...star-filled backdrop...' who says things like that? I was just blanking for like 10 minutes, and then I just gave up--language fail :XD:

Well for as long as it's understandable :]
