What The Rain Brought by karlwennergren What The Rain Brought by karlwennergren
Started out as a book cover that I later decided to work a little more on...

I struggled to get a decent composition in there, but it's far from perfect.. anyways I'm pretty happy with the overall image. What do you think?

all done in ps6

edit: moved the tree closer

I really like the blue glow in the clouds. trying to figure out how this works as a cover... the spaceship (?) ends up on the back, right?
One thing I'm not super convinced about is the mixing of the sunset glow of the lower part of the image and the intense stormy atmosphere on top. I know sometimes the sun breaks through the clouds during a summer storm and it's all weird-like but this still seems a bit too bright. Anyway. The weirdness helps emphasizing that it's a sci-fi story. I still really love the clouds.

I played a little, and it was fun.  The aliens have won, so your running around trying to survive while monstrous terraformers go about their work unheeded and godlike.

I have a small issue with the texture you've put in the clouds here.. you wanted to give it a traditional brush stroke effect but I find it a little too much in this case.
Otherwise I really enjoy looking at this image. The color palette and the idea is very good. I do agree on it having a slight composition issue but that might just be with me. I'm a hardass when it comes to composition though I'm no pro at it at all (yet, hehe). So overall awesome job, hope to see more of your work regularly!

Thank you! It's nice with some critique once i a while. :) I guess it's a little overworked, especially where the yellow sun breaks through

It's a good cartoon back from the late 90's! It's up on Netflix if you're curious enough to look it up.

I try not to upload too large images since I like to be the sole owner of the full resolution image.. but I might add a larger version later! I'm away at the moment:)
