"My Best Theory" Artist's Description:

Here's something I've not done before. Although actually I have done the planet in center with light source directly behind it thing. Aamina was one of my first ones. It does seem to be a pretty popular concept. (I probably have at least 5 deviations in my favorites that are similar to this so it's definitely not an idea I created, although I did use all my own resources :) )
But I wanted to practice planet lighting of all sorts and back light seemed a good place to start. And it worked out well I think. I tried using some layers on color dodge and I think it looks better than my normal lighting attempts.

I whipped it up pretty quick today while chilling and watching an episode of Psych. I decided to take a break from the other scene I've been working on and this is what I came up with.

I mostly just played around with lighting, like I said. But then when nearing the end I had fun throwing in some of my Bryce asteroids and ship renders I haven't used before. Though I think that one's trail is a little funky, I can now say LOOK I CAN MAKE SHIPS! :D

The working title of this was something else but My Best Theory has been playing through my head all day (not that I mind much) and since I normally name my deviations after innocuous aspects of my day or random fleeting thoughts, it seemed appropriate.


Download for the nice, high quality wallpaper.
And I would appreciate a :+fav: if you do download :)
I did after all devote an unhealthy amount of brain power and time to this piece, and if you're going to use it, a fave lets me know my brain cells died for a good cause.

Hmm. I've never made multi display wallpapers before. I'm not sure what resolution I'd need to work at. But I could give it a try.

I actually got the idea from an eclipse tutorial from Abduzeedo (only it was yellow and most abstract). Having the centered planet with light behind seems to be a popular idea. But I think I have come across that Everlasting piece before, and a few other deviations like it. (Although I guess ifreex might have done most of them first; they've got some nice deviations and from a while back) Thanks for posting the link. Others might really like being able to see a more experienced deviant's version :)

I didn't follow it for this piece, but that's where I got my first eclipse idea. It's a good tutorial :)
