I'm just a n00b in this, so I'm not expecting to win something, but I'm planning to raise my knowledge of Photoshop due this contest. Now I really have something to work to. :)

This is what I'm planning, done in a few minutes. Just to give you an idea of what I want. I think I'll change the ship into a flying city, but I don't now about that: (just very very beta)

I'm not going to post that image :rolleyes:
I'll probably put some concept on tomorrow or something. Don't know yet, but I've another idea that I could work out. All will be updated soon.

This is the new idea:

Only a few days ago there was a big battle over the control of a space colony. During this fight many man and robots 'died'. But the defenders fought of the enemy succesfully and have started to repair the colony.

What will come on the picture:
A space colony, robots that are repairing the colony, some debry (SP?) from the fight (parts of ships etc.), a moon/planet on the background, a starfield (it's in space of course) and maybe even a funeral, but I don't know how I should work that out yet.

I've started sketching the robots, this is the result:

C&C on the sketch and idea are more than welcome! :)

Just testing a bit on how to make a good planet.

EDIT: He enlarged it a bit, that's what causes the blury effect, just click on it for the right size image.

And another planet test, this time with rings.

El Toro,

Your planets are looking good. However, with your ringed planet there, your ring is sitting too high - it is above the equatorial plane of the planet, something that would not happen naturally. Due to the gravitational forces the ring will *always* form at the mid point. I'm sure you know this, though. Don't mean to sound preachy! :eek:

Doing rings can be a challenge, but they can be very evocative!

Cheers,
~Shane

Oregano,
Thanks I didn't even realise that, I've changed it a bit but it's pretty diffecult to see because you look at a diffecult angle on the rings, anyway here is the update:

Hey, no problem. Glad I was of help! :bounce:

Just looked at the picture again and realized I missed something as well - check your ring shape against the rings of Saturn. Right now, the ring looks a little warped for the angle at which viewer is positioned. I'd also think about movoing the planet out a little bit so your rings don't look quite so compressed.

Hope that helps!

Cheers,
~S

You mean that the rings are too close to the planet? Well when I worked on it I thought that to but I couldn't be bother to change it. :p But in the final version I'll defenitly change it. But thanks anyway. :thumbsup:
