Well Hello Uranus by SpectralFox Well Hello Uranus by SpectralFox
I had too much fun with this xD Full view for deliciousness

Request/Gift for :iconzeph013: And I'm sure i got the markings of your character totally wrong x3 But i tried

The stars took me the longest to give them a "realistic" type feel, the planet/moons i just improvised on, and for Uranus' ring i used this tutorial to give me an idea [link]

I tried to throw in as much detail as i could :P

And big thanks to :icondaesiy: for giving me pointers on the anatomy, she was super terrific!

Used- Photoshop CS3, tablet/mouse, around 7 hours
refs- [link] [link] [link] [link]

Very striking colors!

Man, I'm old enough that at one time they thought that only Saturn had rings...

Dis is soooo cool Spexxy!!!! I love all the details you included in the shading, they really pop. <33

I seriously though that background was some sort of stock photo. xDD It looks so realistic!

lol xD thanks! I was kinda worried about that because the last time i drew a moon someone didn't believe i drew it and thought i copy and pasted xD
I've been really working on my shading and whatnot :P My next goal is anatomy, it still needs a lot of work x3

And ok! This one was a weird pose and i didn't wanna do all that shading and whatnot with bad anatomy :P I thought it would be kind of a waste x3 If i ever have as much trouble as i did with this I'll call upon the mighty powerz if Shloh once more!

Awesome. ^^ I absolutely love all the detail- I wish I could work that hard on a background- and the shading makes me jealous. Plus, this was an epic idea, because anything to do with outerspace must be epic. XP

lol thanks muchly! I've been waiting for an excuse to do a space picture xD
And you'll get better, you just need to focus on the parts you want to improve on ;P I dunno though, every artist is different, that's just what I did

:iconsoothe-sayer-wolfess:
Yes, I've been trying to focus more on backgrounds and stuff, but it takes forever and I get frustrated easily. :D So I've been working on stuff, but slowly. I will have to do a space picture sometime soon. >.>

The best tip for backgrounds I can think of for ya is that it's not as much "detail" and "skill" involved. It's more of knowing composition and where to put things in the background, think of it as an illusion for details that aren't really there ;P An example is >> [link] << , it's not mine but it's a good example of how just scribbling quickly can give the illusion of detail =D

:iconsoothe-sayer-wolfess:
Awesome. X3 And thanks for the help, I'll have to try it out the next time I draw.

Ah... well they turned out good :) How were you able to just scribble them and still keep them round?
Reply
:iconspectralfox:
SpectralFox Featured By Owner Aug 9, 2010  Student General Artist
by using a big round brush to make a circle on one layer, then you make another layer but that layer is a clipping mask of the first layer, then you just scribble with a bunch of different colors =P
