Throne of God by dilekt Throne of God by dilekt
Here's my newest submission. This time, I went for a "heavenly" look. Followed up on my new nebulae brushing technique, and improved it. I poured my heart into this, and I went for original and creative ideas. I worked a long time on this, probably about 40~ hours or so, with resulting layers amounting to 187. This is possibly my best piece, right next to The Inevitable, concerning paying attention to details and perfection.

Tried giving the land a wide view to give it some depth, and some mountains to give it a rugged/rocky look. Also added fog to give it a mysterious/strange look. I think these two things are a great combination.

I had a wonderful time creating this piece and I hope you enjoy it to it's full extent. Let your eyes wander. Comment and favs are always appreciated.

Simply magnificient. Title fits the piece. i could critique the terrain texture... but why? art doesnt need to be perfect, it need only inspire the viewer. good work.

This picture requires a nice long gaze. It's so beautiful.
The only thing that doesn't seem right is that I think there are a few too many visible stars too close to the bright nebulae.
:shrug: but overall, this is a wonderful picture.

INCREDIBLE! I found this through your gallery and I am absolutely blown away by your work. I cannot believe you are only 15! Keep up the good work, and if you could give me some CLUE as to how you do this stuff it would be awesome.

This is beautiful. Though I have to say maybe a little colder than I'd expect something 'heavenly' to be, but that's neither here nor there. Landscape nicely detailed and tempts exploring, even if only in the confines of my head. Sort of has the feeling of 'completely unexpected things', if that makes any sense whatsoever.

Hmmm.... still awfully similar to Alyn's work... But it is still a beauty.

Wonderful skill.. no, Godlike skill. Wish you look in trying to break free of your own creative walls.
Eclipse-CJ3 Featured By Owner Jan 1, 2005
This is nothing like alyns work. Dilekt is a better artist than alyn ;) And this doesnt look anything like any of alyns stuff.

OMFG that is unreal!!! Amazing piece of work...WOW! :jawdrop:
tigaer Featured By Owner Dec 13, 2004  Professional Digital Artist
there are only 2 flaws in here... 1st one is that some parts of the terrain texturing via PS looks kinda weird... 2nd one is the title... why do you place it within the pic when you have a frame with good space... and the advantage that the title would be much better readable there...? - aside of these things... impressive... :+fav:

uhm, you know.
i love to talk, it never happens to me that i can't talk anymore, but now it does.

this is simply stunning!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!

Your scenery pictures are always so absolutely captivating, and I find this latest submission of yours very pleasant to the eye of the beholder :) everything about it is just so miraculous.
I love the lovely combination of blue tones and white glowing parts, those planets look ever so real.
I wish we had such beautiful moons to watch rising in our skies, but until that happens it will always be a sheer pleasure watching your works and commenting on some. You create such convincing realms :nod:
At full-view, this piece is much more impressive and many little details come out and can be seen.
The mountains down below, the ever dark skies, and those rays of light among them, have really all blown me away for their total perfectness and beauty.
Enchanting and engaging picture, dear :kiss:
Keep them coming :heart:

I've seen this in my mead befor, it's so great....Love your work, I'm gonna end up with this one!
celestial-elevator Featured By Owner Dec 13, 2004
oh my god. This one's marvelous! it totally takes my breath away...

I have never seen such depth in any picture at Deviantart. When I look at it, my mind flows away to those distant mountaines...

I can't stop looking at it...
