TWILIGHT by ladyrapid TWILIGHT by ladyrapid
UPDATE [2009-06-19]
This is the first piece of a bunch that I'll be modify a bit and alter for the better to fresh it up. This piece I couldn't add/change too much since it would only ruin the original concept.

* added rich starscape
* new size for wallpapers
* more contrast
* light on asteroids
* darkened areas in background
* couple more ships

:bulletred::bulletred::bulletred::bulletred::bulletred:

New celestial piece right up!

Been workin on this sucker for quite some time now. Main reason this never finished before is that I didn't have a clear view on how I wanted to build it up, I kinda went on as I went by really hehe.

The asteroid that hits the planet is NOT suppose to be aligned to hit the center, it's ment to hit a bit off.

Nebula brushin is combined freehand and private stock.
This is, for what I know, the first way to present an asteroid belt, with the suggestion to be wrapped around a planet and swirl on ;). Took a bit of work to get it right with colour, position 'n light etc etc.

Title speaks for itself.

My first impression was that this was the Earth and Sun around 3.5 billion years from now. Very nice.
