Ambustus'Gelu v.2 (W.I.P) by fillder Ambustus'Gelu v.2 (W.I.P) by fillder
GAAAH! this drawing is making me insane!!!
All I'm trying to do is making some simple scorched effect on the side closest to the sun, but no, everything I try ends up looking fugly! :rage:

Anyway, this is v.2 of my on-going planet project, and will be the last update before i hopefully finish it. And as I explained above I'm having a bit of a problem with just that. Normally i would have looked up a tutorial or something, but as this a "bowl" formed planet and not a sphere, I'm having a bit of a problem using the same techniques.

If anyone have some tips and tricks that could help me out it would be much appreciated!

whats left to do...
- Add a scorched effect on the right side
- darken the skies and make volcanic activities on the dark continent closest to the sun
- a more "exciting background"
- remake the broken pieces of the planet that previously floated around it.
- I was wondering if I will add some strange light emitting from the darkened continent to the left. (may work something out with it in the story)

I like what you've done with adding Mars and Venus. How about a moon too? Maybe a comet streaking through the background or something.

Some drippings of lava might add a nice little touch where the magma has seeped through the lower crust of the bowl.

Critiques: Place the sun a bit higher so there's more light dawning in the west. The highlight is on the wrong side of Venus...unless there is another sun out of sight to the left.

I'm interested to see what you do with this.

Thank you, always nice with some feedback.
However I must disappoint you as it's not Mars and Venus you see, it is the planet's two moons. ^^
The background will come eventually, but not only will I add a comet, I will try to add a black whole as it is the center of the solar system, not the sun you see in the picture; which is only double the size of the moons. I have considered to add dripping lava, the problem is it's no gravity by the lower crust, so it would not really go downward at all.

as for the critiques: You are totally right, the sun must be moved a little higher. The highlight on "Venus" is not wrong, as you can see the flare of another star behind it.

But anyway, this project has been on ice for quite a while now, but I don't think it will be too long before I finish it.

Yeah, I suppose I'll survive. But I think I will go back to traditional drawings for a while, so I won't get too rusty. I've spent too much time away from normal pen & paper^^

Taking a break is the best sometimes. Good luck!
