What a beautiful piece of work! I looked for all things I talked about in your last piece, and I found none of them here. The planet looks much more round, and there are no stars visible through it. The sun/bright star actually seems to shine out of the picture and blind you. The detail you put into all the colours is astounding. You can see each ring of colour in the sun, and all the colours in the background. The way you made it really gives the picture a sense of going on forever. I also love the rings, not how I pictured the texture, but it definitely works! Great job on varying the smaller stars in the background, different sizes, colours, and axis tilts. One slight problem, the rings are undeniably off center and possibly a little bent. A beautiful picture all around, your improvement is clear!!
What do you think?

Woah, okay, I did not see that it was the Earth at first and had to do a double take...

Technically, it's not the Earth, but it's meant to look a lot like it. :D

The planet in this one looks a lot better than the last, but the rings look a little out of position, as if they're a halo above the planet rather than rings around it.

Yeah, I know. I'm trying to make that better too! Will fix it at some point. :)

Quando vedo questi space fractals mi viene in mente Spore! :noes:
Ci hai mai giocato a Spore? :noes:
heavenriver Featured By Owner Sep 16, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Non ci ho giocato, anche perché in realtà a me non piacciono i videogame :lmao: Però lo conosco, so che è un mondo inventato in cui bisogna far crescere delle creature, giusto? :D
Come mai proprio Spore?

Non proprio, devi evolverti da creatura elementare (tipo batterio acquatico) fino ad arrivare alla conquista dello spazio. :la:
Alla fine stai in un'astronave improbabile e viaggi di pianeta in pianeta. :la: Per questo mi è venuto in mente Spore. :D

Ma che meraviglia, dal batterio alla conquista dello spazio :rofl:
Fantastico, mi devo documentare! :XD: Carina la similitudine :aww:
