Life's Rule by Mark-S Life's Rule by Mark-S
Lifes Rule
One door closes
Another one opens

The power of form.

--------------------

The planets were made in Photoshop, the explosion/Nebula was made in Apophysis, the below half was made in Terragen.
The birds/pelican were perfect stock photos.

This one took a while as well, constant 'this and that changes', small ones then growing into huge changes and additions (the explosion/Nebula).
About a week or so of tweaking very on and off though, on the space scene, and a couple of days rendering the Terragen.

This image also has personal symoblic feelings to it.
Improvments in Photoshop and changes in my life.

I really hope you like this one as much as I do!
Thanks for viewing :).

Hey man. I saw you'd faved my last piece, thank you.
When I went to thank you on your site I coulden't help notice this piece and especially the planet in it. It looks SERIOUSLY alike a few of my personal planets.
Have you taken it and asked for permittion and I'v forgot, then please correct me by show me a note on it, or is it a rip?

It's almost a little to much of a coincedence that it looks like that :D.
Or can u explain how U actually did make the planet?

I'd really like to settle this manner out please.

:iconmark-s:
Mark-S Featured By Owner Apr 20, 2006
Ok, I did not rip that planet from you.

That planet is mine and I made it from satelite images I got from this [link]
If it looks like yours then you probably got your textures from there as well. A lot of people do.
I made it by gathering a couple of those textures then blending them in, as I'm sure you know how to do.

Can you show me the planet your talking about?

Ok, good. If it would have been a rip I'd go crazy ass on you! lol. I belive you since you tell me that you manip them from images as me.
I didn't mean any planet in particular when I compared on mine just taht It could have been some of all of mine ;).

Also I apologize now afterwards when I'v gone through my images and made clear that you dind't actually use any of them, although some are pretty close but still not since I'v used other sizes etc. My bad.

Understand the situation tho =).

Cya, keep up the work!

Dayamn, boy. x) Excellent. Honestly, the only mistake I can see... Is 1 or two PIXELS worth. That's how good this is. (Located in the star field are 1 or 2 red stars that are barely visable, I don't think that's what you were going for)... Just. Excellent.

Truly beautifull.
If the nebula is supposed to be an explosion, it should've looked different. It somehow disturbs the composition here :(
