I think this one is great except that because it is entirely consumed by vibrant colors, it looks somewhat fake. Not in any way putting it, or you, down but thought you just might like to know my opinion. I'm sure that I couldn't come close to what you have so I'm going to shut up now and tell you that I really like this deviation anyway.

Dude. Do you does these by hand or a 3d program? o.0 They're killer.

*saw the link in devi and had to come here* Wish I had mad skillz like this would really pay off in astronomy for the planet projects. XD

Great job *puts on watch and faves the pretty planet that goes boom*

The image is splendidly awesome! The color vibrance and variance is astonishing yet all is somehow mixed with the red, orange, and yellow firey tint to the entire image. As the first post says, you can almost feel the heat from the image just by looking at it. It is completly awesome! :thumbsup: :thumbsup: IF u get time, please visit my section, [link]. I am a beginning artist and I am trying to learn new things by the day.

That slight blur effect really adds to the destructive feel, makes it seem more titanic and intense. Nice work.

Woah I can't believe I missed this on my last swing by... I love the intense colors contrasting the darkness... The blurring of the planet thingy really gives movement. Also, the gas clouds are pretty cool-lookin :) (Smile) Thumbs Up Thumbs Up

Overall, tremendous work, there is a real feel for the power of this explosion.

The colouring is very appropriate, and looks almost like a star going supernova. The intense flare jetting from the back really gives a sense that the thing is going supernova in all direction.

You work on the star field, especially to the left of the body is excellent. There is real clarity there.

Although the body itself is slightly blurred, it gives a feeling of movement, and the speed of the explosion.

It must have been great fun putting this together.

great use of all included effects, I have just started to follow tutorials on creating cool fire and I hope I will become as good at is as you are! :) (Smile) +fav
sanosoke Featured By Owner Apr 2, 2003
oh my holy f*cking lord this is crazy cool
I love your attention to detail. . .I would like to see a version that's higher in bumpmapping, and with less or no motion blur. . .but that would take a lot of work, I would imagine, and you've obviously already worked very hard on this. . .and it shows
Fantastic job

I have surfaced once more drawn out by this marvellous piece of art.

Explosions are far better in movement but the blur really makes you think the "camera" has been shaken like crazy by the immense explosion.

Hey Hameed how about some newly created planets rather than destruction its starting to get rather tiresome your work should not be just about destruction.
darkstar412 Featured By Owner Mar 20, 2003
Previous should have been attached to "Nebulae source". Guess I took a strange turn in my maze,,, er,, mind I mean.
darkstar412 Featured By Owner Mar 20, 2003
I downloaded, and am gonna use it in something, soon. Will credit, and I'll note you when I submit trhe work, whatever it is. Really like it. Looks like it will work very well as a background in something. The wheels in my random maze of a mind are turning now.

erai Featured By Owner Mar 19, 2003
okay, that is just a awesome explosion, made me want to cover my eyes and squint just out of reflex. :D (Big Grin)

good job!!!
dodgefoxx Featured By Owner Mar 16, 2003
I think the blurs give it the sense that the planet is being ripped apart at this exact moment, that how it looks to me anyways. Pretty and violent at once, great stuff.
dragonite Featured By Owner Mar 16, 2003   Photographer
Seems like as if the star will blow up, creating a big ka boom!
Awesome work!
