Disruption by taenaron Disruption by taenaron
First time I made a planet impact image. Not very original but I wanted to give it a try on my own. All in all I am quite happy with the feeling I generated. I hope you like it as well.

Several different wallpapersizes available on my homepage: gtgraphics.de

i love this picture, it's amazing!
but... i will try to put a critique if i can :)
the look of the picture and the colors are stunning!
the originality.... well, you said it your self, it's a common idea, but even so... it's still amazing!
i love the blur effect you did here, but i think (in my opinion) that it's wrong to blur the far rocks, because far things from us do not usually blur, but here, you blur-ed every rock, which (in my opinion) not very right
and, another thing, i found (in my opinion ;P) wrong, usually when a strong light (let's say the sun or moon) meets a weak light (let's say stars) the strong light appears and the weak do not appear or appear so little, but here around the sun(or the moon... not sure) the stars appear the same as the far stars from the corner, and the light of the impact is very strong, and still the stars show up normally,
well... that's my opinion and i think you artwork is a masterpiece :)

To start with, I think this was very well done. You have definitely done great on this piece. As for artistic ability, you exceed as an artist. And though you are correct, planetary impact isn't a very original idea, I give you credit for original style. I just didn't feel the [literal] impact in this picture.

To be more precise, this isn't exactly what I'd expect to see in a picture of an impact with Earth [or any other planet]. It seems like the streaks of orange flying into space, along with the area near the point of impact were a bit rushed. What would usually be the most detailed part of an impact picture is the actual spot where both objects touch - for instance, the smoke around the impression, the clouds spreading out and evaporating from the force and heat of the impact. And assuming the orange is magma/lava, it doesn't resemble a liquid in this piece, instead it fades off as if it were gaseous fumes escaping from the centre of Earth. The motion blur used on pieces of rock and magma rocketing out over the atmosphere was a nice touch, showing the force of such an impact.

Your technique is great, and considering this is a relatively small picture, it's very well done. Just for future reference, when it comes to space art [this is coming from a person that absolutely loves space art], detail is what attracts the viewer. The bigger, more detailed the picture, the better. I'd like to see a digital art of an impact that looks photo-realistic, but with a hint of the artist's original style incorporated. Of course, you noted that this is your first impact picture, so I'll be looking forward to your next one!

Hope I wasn't too harsh!

A l o h a !  To you ~

Your graphics first caught my attention a couple of years ago as I was looking for some sort of background slides for my first laptop. After downloading the bundle many people commented on the artwork in a appreciative way. So, after all, catching you on Deviant Art was a pleasant surprise. 
Keep on keepin' on.

it's fantastic. now this is something that would be really annoying to fix, but most impact events occur at around 35-40 degrees, meaning that the ejecta is higher and more pronounced on one side of the impact. the sound shockwaves are still circular, because the sound still propagates away from the impact at the same speed, but more material would be blasting off on one side.

Looks awesome. :wow:

btw, I put this impact through a simulation, and the result would be that, assuming the larger planet is the size of Earth and that the smaller one is the size and density of Pluto, even the people on the other side of the world (16,000 km away) would have only about 12 minutes to prepare for death from being scorched by the rapidly-expanding fireball (which would mantain itself for nearly two whole days), despite being nearly 4,000 km away from it. Further destruction would arrive 53 minutes after impact in the form of a Richter 13.8 earthquake, and then everything would be completely destroyed after 13.5 hours, when a 6,372 kph wind with an air pressure of over 49 atmospheres would grind everything to powder.

...so yeah, we'd be goners. D=

I really like how well you portrayed motion in a still art piece. The blurred pieces of rock look great, and I love the impact. Nice job with the details. :)

I THINK THE PLANET IS A LITTLE FAR INTO THE OTHER PLANET TO HAVE GENERATED SUCH A SMALL IMPACT ZONE BY THAT TIME...THAT IS UNLESS THE SMALL PLANET WAS MOVING EXTREMELY FAST

Yeah, I probably should've noted that in the critique as well. By the time the object was that far into the planet, the damage would have been much more substantial than just the destruction of the immediate point of impact.

I cannot critique your work in the way a teacher of the Arts can. I will tell you that your work stopped me from doing what I came to do and I am always pressed for time.

The glow of the object impacting is what brings the life to the image, it makes it a collision.

A planet must be heated to its core.. no, the outside is as heated as it's core... The quick questions that run through a persons mind when they, I or anyone is impressed with what they see.

Just.. like .. this one. Thank You
