Hey, just wanted to post my final image in this section from the contest.

Here is the link to the forum.

Nice, very nice.

But, top left, whats with the total blackness? is there no light going over there? I think it detracts from the rest of the colour in the scene.

also, the sky, personally the light yellow part looks a bit sharp, looks like its water with the ripples, but it IS an alien world, so that could be exactly the look you were after.

I love the ground, the WHOLE grouind... excluding that single bit at the bottom-centre... more blackness, surrounded by lit areas.

I think this looks really good, great work dude! :thumbsup:

Thanks for the comments. And yes, I wanted to the sky to be almost a heavy atmosphere. Good eye.

As for the black section on the bottom. That's how the lighting worked out with the lights in the scene. The first major light comes from the whole, the second comes from the Top, and thrird from the back mountains.

I overlooked that section on purpose becuase I wanted more focus on the whole. My secondary focus is the objects around the whole. And third is the bottom right object magnifying the matalic liquid/desert look.

I really liked how that piece came out and did not want to detract from it. I wish I had more time to work on the image. But I have submitted the final.

Thanks for the eye.
