A Planet's Passing by KennethJensen A Planet's Passing by KennethJensen
What if a planet devoured itself? What if a planet's core got so hot that the weakest parts of the planet just melted towards the core of the planet?

What if a planet ate itself?

A Planet's Passing in 2560 x 1600

Enjoy!

Lovely artwork! A few thoughts:

you'd expect a significant number of quakes and volcanic eruptions if a planet split up like this - this looks almost like an uber-nuke was fired into the side of the planet or something. it looks very cool, but strikes me as scientifically unlikely - the sort of thing you'd see if someone used a magic staff to break a planet apart

that said, I'd be interested to see it "more torn apart" - with more space between the segments, and perhaps some asteroids forming from cooling lava exposed to vacuum drifting off

if that's what you're going for though, awesome work - and the faded starscape also adds that "magical" feeling to it
What do you think?

I use earth images and use some filters.Also using crack brushes to create cracks on planet and add some shadows.Green part is duplicated layers and playing with colors.I hope this helps :)

It probably has happened one time or another in our galaxy. seeing that random changes can occur causing the planet to become unstable. its a great pic. :]

"So lonely and so tragic. A planet has an unknown life span when it is created. It could last a trillion years, or no longer than a second due to unstoppable forces. Be it man or natural, it will cease eventually. Like dust and echoes it will just become, the remnants float away from the original position into nothingness. Such a sad sight indeed, to watch the giant die off and vanish." - Me

Basically, simply outstanding. It IS a sad sight to watch a planet just die off. The background is beautiful and the stars perfectly blanketing the space. I love the detail on the planet, regardless of it being ripped to pieces, and the inner glow / brightness of the core is great as well.

My ONLY concern is the secondary object in the picture. Is it a moon, or another planet? It looks too far away in my opinion to be a moon, but what do I know? I'm just an unprofessional critic =P

Thanks for the comment, really appriciated:D.

The distant planet is not a moon, its a planet of it's own. I felt that i needed another planet, because it seemed so empty on it's own. But i didn't wanna make it steal the attention of the picture, so i made it blend inn more with the background.

But anyways, thanks for the comment, highly appriciated:D

You're quite welcome.

Ah. Then I have a thing against planets being so close together, lol, though the two might be orbiting each other. It does create a nice filler there from all the space, either way.

Welcome again ^^

Oh yes. I love the smell of fresh art in the morning :)

Herlig bilde, flott fargebruk. liker veldig godt stemningen i bildet, og kontrasten mellom alt det rolige blå og det eksplosive røde er flott! Plasseringen av planetene er det ingenting negativt å si på, hverken i forhold til bildet eller hverandre. Igjen så ser jeg _mange_ klynger med tre stjerner på rad (spesielt mellom den blå planeten og bunnen av bildet) men ellers, her der det mye fint for øyet!

Spørsmål: Lager du planetene i 3D, og limer inn, eller er alt laget i "2D"?

Translation:
Good, great, wonderful, good, three stars in a row all over the place, nice, beautiful, colors. Are the planets made in 3D or 2D?
