Golgen by hoevelkamp Golgen by hoevelkamp
Hi @ all.

Long time since my last vertical picture. I was working on this gas giant, put some rings around it and flipped it around, just to see how it was looking. And this was the best looking angle. So I stayed with it and gave it some subtle background and some moons.

This new (for me) technique to create gas giants is working pretty well. This one is definitely the best gas giant I ever created.

Enjoy the view.

What exactly is iffy about the small planet? Is it something I could easily change? Is it because it has no atmosphere? Other than that, thanks a lot. :D

Stop making me jealous with your superiror gas giants :crying: This sure is a very natural, yet dramatic scene, I can tell it would be huge, perhaps bigger than Jupiter itself :wow:

I do this intentionally to piss you off. mwuahaha... Thanks buddy. You noticed the improvements in the cloud maps? No more visible repetitions. Well... no more if you don't look very closely. ;)

It was hard for me to spot the repetivness even on the stock ones, so I can safely say I can't see any here (besides, Jupiter gets "patterns" in it's storms and swirls anyway)

If you ever make a tutorial on this, I won't be complaining lol. Next time I do space art (which may be a while) I might try this anyway :)

A tutorial? Hmmm... not in the near future I'd say. I want to enjoy my "superior" technique a little longer, before I give all my secrets away. ;)

Lol, same reason why I havn't made tutorails yet (well, that and I can't seem to take screenshots on my laptop :confused:) I might need to install all my programs on the home computer for that.

I use a little program for screenshots called "Ashampoo Magical Snap". For that one you would've to pay, but there are similar programs as freeware on the net. You might wanna try that.

Yeah, the home PC can take screenshots. But my windows XP laptop can't. It's never connected to the internet though, so I don't think I'll be downloading anything onto it anytime soon (unless the program can be saved to a USB or disk and tranferred over to install) :plotting:
