terraarc: Thanks! haha, you're right, I'm bound to find things I need to tweak.

d-tox: Thanks very much!

yunisirees: Thanks man!

keetmun & arturro: Thanks very much guys! here's how I made the seawater:

The sea itself is just a polygon plane with a few lumps on it that I modelled with sculpting tools. The texture on the ocean is made from some pictures that I took in my bathtub, heheh

Here they are: (Feel free to use these if they're of any use)

I then used some dirtmaps and put them together to look like this:

And that's pretty much it! I applied the texture to a blinn shader and used it as a spec map aswell.

wow.. excellent atmosphere!! is the rain 3d? if so is it difficult? I know your image is final, but the centre character is it above the floor?

great work!

I really like your image, but are you planning on putting in more dealing with the Space theme? By the way, your water and rain look great.

Hi, your image is very cool, i like the technique you have use. But I think the subject is not that strong to be an Space Opera. I mean that scene easily could happen in Earth. But CONGRATULATIONS, IT IS A GREAT IMAGE.

I am happy that I was selected. But I have to say that there were so many great artists that couldn't get the result they expected although they deserved it .Also it was so likely that those who got the award couldn't be successful at all;I mean it is a matter of taste and other factors.Therefore,we shouldn't take much pride in our acheivements nor be dissappointed with the result.See you all in other challenges and good luck!.
