"I Drop Gems" Artist's Description

Named after "I Drop Gems" by _ensnare_. There really are no words apt enough to describe how awesome this song is. Seriously, if this is your bag, check it out. You may very well fall in love. Don't judge right away, though. Let it's awesomeness build up and surround you first.

Besides being named after one of my favorite pieces of music, this work of mine is quite clearly inspired by eatenwaffle, who I wish had more videos. (You can find eatenwaffle under a different name here on dA.) Granted, I only tend to watch about 2 minutes or so of his videos. I don't want to mimic them exactly. I just like to use them to give me a boost, another way to learn some new techniques and get myself out of the box and hopefully give me some ideas. I'm a bit wary of uploading a piece that's so similar to another artist's work, especially an artist as amazingly talented as that one, but I can't help myself. My "I Drop Gems" is just a learning piece, but I still like the way it came out. It's lacking some detail, and some perspective, but it makes me happy, and that's all I can ask for :)

This image is simply gorgeous, because of how it was made as for what it is shown: a great planet with a very well-made ring system (not cluttered and of a relatively good size) and hat seems to be cities below.

Simply inspiring :happybounce:

Amazing view here... never really seen a saturn-like planet that way before much.
