Sorry Haven't been around much to comment much mate, but this is wonderful. The colour combination or deep purples and blues and slight hint of greens and yellows are stunning, one of the most realistic compostions ive ever seen!

I've never been really 'into' sci-fi/sky art, but yours are just phenomenal, enough to grab my attention and sucker me in for a good long stare. It's hard to imagine all the dedication to detail you have here - everything is just so perfect. Well done.

soz Featured By Owner Apr 8, 2005
How you have the patience to work on one piece for 3 months is beyond me, but it shows in the quality of work you produce, this is simply amazing.
PlasmaX7 Featured By Owner Apr 2, 2005

I love the textures on the left side.
Urus-28 Featured By Owner Mar 30, 2005  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I only have one problem when i see your pictures, i don't know how you can get the idea to make them, i mean i can have strange idea cool design or new shapes. But have the idea for the shape of a nebulae, this is something i cannot do, well probably because i never seriously think about it but the main idea still very strange for me, it's like the shape of a could.
But well, this allow me to even more apreciate your work :D
Hameed Featured By Owner Mar 30, 2005  Professional Digital Artist
Well actualy speaking, i start off the nebulae and they kind of grow in to the right shape as i etch away at them, i never have a full idea of what its going to look like, more like a genral i dea of what i want. I dont really know but i guess its kinda like driving to some place without a map, and you only have a rough idea of how to get there, but your willing to figure it out when you get close to the end.
Urus-28 Featured By Owner Mar 30, 2005  Hobbyist Digital Artist
All right, i understand the process, quite different from me, i need in general several sketches or a precise idea of what i want :D
Hameed Featured By Owner Mar 30, 2005  Professional Digital Artist
Yeah i tried that aproach too but it doesnt seem to work out how you plan it out, its best to just let it flow so to speak. (from my experience anyway)
admin-sever15 Featured By Owner Mar 29, 2005
You always blow my mind with this stuff... the dedication and beauty.. just stunning. I cannot wait for the wallpaper pack.
jjay Featured By Owner Mar 29, 2005   Photographer
This is a very impressive piece hameed. The planets textured look is quite fantastic and the suns lighting effects are gorgeous. Nicely done m8. :clap:


You know I would love to see some time someone attempt to create storm details on one of their planets. Like these:

That would be something quite incredible. :)
AidenVenis Featured By Owner Mar 29, 2005  Student Interface Designer
Amazing, a real hameed picture! You can cleary see your style here with the use of colours, a bit grey and dark exactly what it makes this al realistic.Great work!!

rcybergeek Featured By Owner Mar 29, 2005
I need like one huge room and a lot of money so I can plaster it with all your excellent prints.
Alexielated Featured By Owner Mar 28, 2005   Digital Artist
I love this one, the nebula is perfectly illustrated and the little planet down there is the best. The shiny stars look so realistic... this is more than good, this is perfect
madbrainsurgeon Featured By Owner Mar 28, 2005  Hobbyist Digital Artist
nice man like it a lot
BassHeavy Featured By Owner Mar 28, 2005
I just wandered onto your Profile thanks to a resource listing by an artist named Tigaer and wow, your amazing. It's probibly because with almost any other artist the closer you look at their work the more it seems to come apart but yours only getts better as you look closser.

the intricate detail of this is amazing - it makes me wish this was a different world - and I had the power to go there.

Two Questions:

1) Do you own a spacecraft?

2) May I borrow it?
Swaroop Featured By Owner Mar 31, 2005
dunno about Hameed. But I have a spacecraft
NeoPhoenix Featured By Owner Mar 27, 2005
Wow.... Is even such professionality allowed in this world? Awesome work.
