Now where to start^^ I think you have A very good technique and have a good understanding and foundation in photoshop, as a terragen 2 user its nice to see it in use.
The top half of the image is superbly done a little cliche maybe which is often very common with terrascapes (they all look the same) try and be different weather it be a landscape with striking features or an atmosphere with a unique complexion just something like that to make it stand out from the other terrascapes.
The bottom half of the image is rather boring the camera needs to be at a higher angle not with the horizon dead smack in the centre that is a big no no a useful tip is to tilt the camera on its side which gives it a more eccentric trick point of view also the mountains would look better with a bit of snow on the tops just so it isn't so monotone in colour.
i think along the horizon is where you have nailed it the aurora and solar flares are superbly done and the vivid hues blend in nice with the atmosphere the yellow gold gives it the fresh sense of dawn^^, the little space ships cold have been composed into the seen a little better maybe a little more shadow and reflection.
Keep up the great work man and thanks for all the fav's wish you luck in your next endeavours into the world of science fiction^^ and be different from the rest, work on developing your own style and your artwork will soar!
Hi, This image is incredible!! I was wondering if I could use this for a possible music album cover. I'm re-releasing my first two albums as free downloads since I recently left my previous record label. I checked out a lot of your work and this one seems to grab my attention the most. My music is a mix of world, ambient, tribal etc. If you would rather I not use this image that's completely fine.
