Space. An area that has been explored many times by us yet at the same time there is still so very little that we know. Viewing the heavenly bodies above us is truly a wondrous spectacle to behold and "Brutus" by TixoL is a primary display of their beauty. From the rings on the planet to the eye-catching stars that blaze behind it, it truly is an amazing sight to see.

The detail surround the planet's surface is really well done in this image. Every curve, crack and landmass is well articulated with the texture usage. The atmospheric clouds on the planet itself are well done too rather than appearing tacked on at the last minute, which brings me to the rings of the planet. Similar to Saturn, Uranus and planets of the like, this planet has very prominent rings that shape the planet making it that much more unique to the watcher's eyes. The atmosphere really captures the mysteriousness of the planets themselves. The stars are so captivating at how they light up the sky around the planet, creating a great shadow effect from the planet onto the rings themselves showing off their translucency.

Despite the vast mysteries that outer space still holds for us, it is no mystery why "Brutus" is an great design in a well-established genre. With its many details and beautiful planetary design, its sure to entice any onlookers. Excellent work, TixoL!

I absolutely love this piece, everything comes together very well and I thoroughly enjoy the color scheme, its unique and easy on the eyes. Planet texture has a nice original feel to it, and man those rings are phenomenal! Great work with the lighting and shadow, it really casts a realistic mood for the viewer. The start field works well, plenty of tasty details in there, with good color variation.

For some suggestions, the main stardust at the top seems a little bit rushed to me, I think mainly because there aren’t too many highlights in it, it seems a bit dull. Maybe some more paint-over will help this, highlighting the parts where the light hit’s the “pockets” of the nebula. Creating a new layer on overlay or soft light, and then using a white or very light yellow colored soft brush might help this, and just going over the parts that are supposed to be lit up by the two large stars. You know, just to pop out the scene a little more.

For the overall star field, maybe some more large, brighter stars will liven up this piece as a whole, not to many of course cause you don’t want that to distract from the rest of the beauty, but just a few so it isn’t so “black”.

These are all minor issues, this is definitely an above average piece, it has loads of quality elements and it isn’t boring at all. I just wanted to share my opinions. Great style and technique mate, I always enjoy looking at your work! Keep it up! :)
