Spike & Faye hanging around near a nebula-- :)


Hey Buddies!


I first made the nebula by reading the first steps of the great and famous "Riven guide lines" of Greg Martin-- Just to play with-- (and to see if I was capable of something!)

It turned not (too) bad, so I decided to expand a little bit the space context of the picture-- by adding a star field, some planets.
Then, I thought... great, I have a background, I would need some cool space character(s) on it... *hey, I just downloaded (leeched) some cool scan from MT few days ago...
Wow, cool! Faye AND Spike! Let's see what I can do-- *

And here is the final version of this wall: I hope you like it!

I KNOW that this scene is totally impossible... you can't possibly see planets so close from a nebula. They are just here because it looks cool (to me)
The wall is dark, really dark... because I wanted a very dark wall (contrary to my last wall which has bright color(s) ;) )
I added the smoke near the guns... I thought it could look better to have smoking guns-- my opinion.

Dedicated to:
My dear brother! He likes CB and I wanted to make a wall for him on day or an other ;-)

Did you know?:
A nebula is a star generators. A nebula (most of the time) holds so much energy that it can create stars, stars (certain) which then allow systems to be built around them (sometimes) and then life (sometimes) on certain satellites (if they have) like Earth! XP Ain't that great?
Well, I think that's a lot more complicate than that-- but I'm not an astrophysician XP
Ok, I know, I know... I'm boring, sorry-- ;)

(Constructive) Comments are truly welcome!

Updated 12/05:
i made some slight changes to the backgound, the windows look more like glass or platic windows (thanks Technophreak for spotted this ;) ) The background looks a little bit less so dark-- not so bad after all :D

    wow, motoko, where ya been? lol, youve gotten a lot better since the last time i saw you.
    and if thats a vector of CB, then i dam well envy your l33t skillz. nice texture on the bottom, BG, and frames for the glass.

    i personally, would add some glare off of the glass, and maye make a transparent white layer to imitate a more realistic look for it. great job man :)

    I'm not a fan of planet wall but the nebula is a cool idea I didn't see one often and it looks really nice with this mix of dark and bright colors.
    Cool scan and I like the smoke from the gun you added, I agree with you it looks good ;)
    And this time, I really like what you did with the title, the letter in low transparence and the splash.
    I don't really know what I could say of constructive, but there's maybe one thing that bother me a bit, it's the hair of Spike, they doesn't seem to blend so well and look a bit 2D, but I really don't know how you could arrenged that.
    Anyway a cool dark wallie, thanks for sharing Motoko ;)
