First Snow

First work for some weeks. I just wanted to learn more about terragen. And that's the result. I know, it's no big innovative monster artwork, but I like the mood in it. It's like the first day of winter, snow at evening and everything's just silent and peaceful. Lovely :D

I hope you like it too. :+devwatch: :+fav: and Comments welcome like everytime.

- 4000x3000 px 300dpi

At first glance I thought this was a pretty neat sci-fi image. The composition is very good, and the artist know how to guide your eyes thru his visuals. An overall feeling of emptiness (the bare rocks and no sign of life anywhere), loneliness (am I stuck on this planet? Who left me there?) and unwelcoming atmosphere (the mountains look icy and cold) is the first thing I register.
But then, as your eyes go exploring you notice a small beacon on top of the the most prominent mountain. There is life after all! Perhaps I am not stuck here anyway? Perhaps I live here...I may even be on a trip exploring this planet?
I always love when an artwork tells more than just the apparent story, and this one does so very well.
But the single detail that sucked me into this image, was the small planet or moon situated between "my" planet, and the large Earth-like planet in the back.
That globe makes the whole picture 3-dimensional, believable and lifelike.
The only hickup I have are the distant white mountains and their surrounding white "glow", atmosphere or mist.
They look like they don´t really belong.
Other than that, this is a great piece of artwork that looks like an image pulled out of the NASA archives 2167 A.D.
What do you think?

Great picture!
Love the three little figures climbing the hang along the ridge - and the overall detail.
I agree with the critique below about the mist/clouds - noticed this issue too, sorry.
Other than that, IMHO, a stunning work!

FAVing...

I just found out that you're the author of this magnificent wallpaper. I had downloaded it months ago while I was browsing wallpaper sites. I submitted four desktop customizations of it and linked to your page in my comment. Great work.

Amazing! The cosmos is such a wonderful place. The only thing that throws me off a little is the lighthouse, because it looks out of place at first glance.

But still, totally amazing work, and I hope you make more! :D :love:

I think I've found someone that can top Joe-Jesus! LOL!

The tiny human figures really show the true sence of scale of the whole thing. I'm really not sure what to say because saying it's beautiful would be and understatemant. It's hard to really find the words to describe just how stunning it all is!
