Living Planet by Bakenius Living Planet by Bakenius
Ah yes. See here the result of a weekend procrastination. I should have learned for an exam, I should have mailed my tutor, I should have finished Carrotia #4...

Instead I made this. (more or less) At least it looks pretty!

I'm still trying out a few things on merging the biological and technological... is it a forest, or a city? Are those things in the foreground trees, skyscrapers or even living creatures... you decide. :)

Sketched in Shi Painter, worked out in Photoshop in about 5 hours

You did a really good job with the lake/ocean. It looks organic, like something I would imagine on another planet. Also the sky, it's amazing.

O gosh, this is soooo lovely.
I am very speechless.
The colors are amazing, the shapes are just perfect.
It's making me a bit emotional, i can only dream of becoming as good as you in
one day.
Have a warm day,

Hey, would it be alright with you if I used a cut out of this image for a scrapbook page? I'll be sure to provide a link to your original art and give you credit. :D

I just loved this piece so much and it reminded me of what I imaged for my alien planet in a story I'm writing. :heart:

That is... inspiring. Glowing city lights shine golden under a shimmering space lit sky, glorious wonder and adventure accessed simply by looking up at twin worlds hanging in orbital suspension above- I may be forced to write a short story now. Hope that's okay with you?

I love this! I love how smooth the coloring is, and it really does seem alive, as the name suggests. I'm going to use it as my wallpaper.

I haven't seen many brushed space scenes, but they're such a nice change from all the 3D and photo-manipulated planets. I mean, those can be nice too, but they start to look the same after a while, even from skilled artists.

Anyway, lovely piece! I'm going to look at the rest of your stuff now.
