Gravity by Nuukeer Gravity by Nuukeer
A billion years before two galaxies merge, the view could look something like this (with a long exposure time perhaps).

Original resolution: 9600x6000 pixels.

EDIT: minor update.

Download for full view, as dA shrinks it to oblivion.

I think Andromeda is due here in about 2 billions years actually. Same time frame as yours. It might actually look like that in the sky for a while.

This is so amazing!
I have a question about your work, how do you do extremely close up planets? Like the one in the foreground? Whenever I try it the texture gets blurry, how are yours so sharp and crisp? :)
This is truly beautiful!

I use perspective distortion together with twirl on the arc setting. If you spherize it gets blurry.

Every single element in this piece screams of quality and crispness - the composition however is lacking, and brings down the overall appearance somewhat.

Nuukeer Featured By Owner Nov 10, 2010
Thanks, but could you elaborate on what you think is dragging down the composition?

There's really no flow in the picture (left side crowded with elements, right side rather empty). Though the nebula helps somewhat in creating a dynamic flow for your eyes, its not enough combined with other compositional flaws though. Where there are lines and compositions to draw your eyes over the image, they're too straight and uninteresting (the straight line from top to bottom on the left side: Galaxy -> moon/planet -> close up -> moon planet for instance). It's also a bit hard to distinguish what it is that's supposed to be the central object here; the beautiful galaxy (should be, imo ;)) and the bright shining star both competes (another two objects too straightly aligned towards each other) against each other for the attention.

All in all it looks a bit square - everything in lines and around the edges of the picture.

It's still a beautiful piece though. I think it deserves a bit better though...

Thanks again, but I'm a little unsure, I think I'm going to do something a little more condensed, the planet's edge looks a little harsh. :P

Perhaps. You're still 1000x times better then me, but I'm improving. You're my biggest motivation!

As for this piece, its damn amazing. The upclose planets atmosphere is a little bright near the edge, but that's your style ;)
