Winter Solstice by dilekt Winter Solstice by dilekt
The winter solstice occurs about December 21, when the sun is over the tropic of Capricorn.

Sorry, i'm a sucker for blue. First time making a planet with clouds on it. I think this turned out really good imho. I tried making the transition from the sky to space as realistic as possible. It's about fantasy, not realism though. I think i've found where my true passion holds.

Please leave any comments or favourites, I will greatly appreciate it.

nice landscape & transition from lower half.. but i am not impressed with your sudden use of lunar cell, i am afraid you should not use it.. it is very overemobssed & sea is very unrealistic + clouds are very basic. jsut thought you should not use lunar cell please :| but your starfield & everything is else if fine, just stick to making custom planets matey ;)

hey dilekt! another piece yet again i see. well, u've done a great job on this one also! :-) the planets great, but i think its time for u to break away from making blue space/fantasy scenes, and use more colors. this is because blue is overused in space, and it would be better to incorporate other colors within ur future works. that will make it unique, and more attractive :-)

Not terrible, although the lunar cell planet doesn't help, nor does the atmospheric fading seemingly done without reason... But the main fault of this piece is the lack of... I dunno, compositional elements? The one planet and it's moon above some soft landscape is kind of boring--maybe re-arrange the planet and it's moon, or rotate them, for a bit more focus... or add more clouds or blend more softly the ones you have now. It's hard to say.

You may take this comment hard, try not to. :P I'm not being a dick, just trying to help.

Personally, this is the way I wanted it to turn out. I don't want it to be complex, just a simple composition. We all have different tastes :P
