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.

Hey I love your work. Do you do any custom work? I'm looking for an album cover type design with a planet. I have a small budget, but I think what I'm looking for shouldn't be very difficult for you to do, you are clearly gifted...

Please let me know!

I never left a comment before, and I believe it's extremely long overdo.. But I first stumble across this picture a few years ago. It left me breathless. It was an instant fave. It was my wallpaper on my desktop. But I didn't stop there. It became my cell wallpaper. And any wallpaper I could fit it in at the time. When I lived with my sister for a few months, I made sure my account in her laptop had this wallpaper. And around that time I had the most amazing experience ever of creativity. I went on a typing spree that lasted 5 months. I was incredibly happy because I was being so creative, I had the creativity bolt that hits us on rare occasions. And out of all of those countless pages of documents, I always had this on my BG wallpaper.

I eventually moved, change my wall paper a billion more times, but this one had that special effect that I can't get anywhere else. Right now I'm having a bit of an artist block, and stumbling across this again I felt this immense nostalgia that it makes me want to weep. It reminded me of those great countless months of endless creativity. The chances of that happening again are unknown but having this on my desktop wallpaper feels like I'm going home again... Thank you for submitting this timeless work of art.

I like your picture a lot :D. Can I use it for an article on my blog ? With a link to your gallery, of course, I know isn't pleasant that other people take ownership of our work.
(Sorry if my english isn't very understandable, I'm french.)

Hello there Tobias, I really admire your art but I think I have found a copyright infringement on this website. When I saw your art on the website I suddenly realized that I definitely saw it on your Gallery. Here it is: [link]

taenaron Featured By Owner Nov 8, 2011   Digital Artist
They asked me to create a different version for their website. So: yes ;) :)

that way the clouds play with the darkness of the sky and should make more of this kind...thanks for showing... you are a great artist.

OMG you are the man who made this XD,this pict is so epic
intel352 Featured By Owner Oct 3, 2011
I believe I like this version better. Definitely like the removal of the border lines. You should make a version available (charge-only even) that removes all text, or moves any necessary text into a corner copyright, so we can buy/print this :-)
Nightshade1979 Featured By Owner Sep 25, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
Personally I like this version better since to me looks more natural. The original was too .. chaotic IMO too much in the clouds and glow. Anyways very strong image great work!

any way you could get rid of the text on it? I'd use it for a desktop background it's really cool other than that.

Wrath, power, divine, elegance, dominating. This image is the simple and explicit embodiment of these terms. No questions asked.

Would it be possible to use this image as a backdrop for my band and if so would there be a charge for a download of an image of such quality that it could be enlarged into an 8ft by 6ft backdrop (no title please) I'll get the text graphics added at the printers.
