As part of my aim to create more art in both digital and traditional ways I wanted to re-create the space scene that I use quite a lot on my site and see how well I could make it using what I had. Unlike the previous times I have created planet rings I didn’t take a shortcut. I created around 200 thing individual rings and set their colour and transparency for these pieces.
This was the first piece that I created, is quite pale I think, but it’s a bit more accurate to the picture I’m re-creating.
The second piece uses more of a camera flared Sun as if it was being looked at through glass.
I’m quite pleased with how these turned out and I’m going to try and do more. Which one do you think is best?
