The Rise of a Planet II by taenaron The Rise of a Planet II by taenaron

:bulletblack: The Rise of a Planet II

After more than three years, 300,000 views and 28,000 downloads on deviantART only, it was about time to try a remake of The Rise of a Planet. Somehow this image talked and talks to people. You can find it all around the internet. Regardning all these things, I am feeling even more bad because I don't like it at all.

But I wanted to give it another try. I failed several times by creating a second version but now, I think, I created something that's comparable to the message and the feeling of the original. I also thought about replacing the old one, but there have been a lot of people telling me, to upload it as an own version. Here we go.

Great picture it really inspire a person to do greater things and makes them want to not just look at it but into it and understand the full potential and meaning of this picture. It is a great motivational piece and I would be overjoyed to see more like it I hope you keep doing more like it and continue on as the great artist you are.

(Also I would appreciate it if I could use this on my blog with a link to your site. I cincery hope you continue to make these awe inspiring works for the public.)

You know even if you dont like the first version I love it. LOL Sorry but both works speaks volumes of great things. And the magic and things on them are so different yet. Its the same picture.
On the first pic I fill like Ive been pulled into an ice heaven. So excited yet cold and inviting. Its something hard to describe for me.

On the second one I feel like Im standing in front of a plannet and that I just only need to extend my hand to brush the planet with my fingertips.
I wish I could make things like this on ps. Its like creating a short little piece of magic for others to enjoy. Thank you for sharing this with us. And I think you had mature along the years. So this time the second work reflects a more channeled passion than the first one who with its size reflects on a promise fullfilled on the second one.^^ :blush:^^
