I actually like this one more than the "spaceballs" version, too. The lens flare is a neat effect here, it adds some subtle color to the piece outside of the planets. And the nebulae in the background - I don't see those often in space pieces but they add some great texture to the background! Overall great work (again)
Wow another awesome art you made! Even though I'm not as good as you are I do have one tip for the starfield. You shouldn't make as many stars in the background because it looks too dusty. Still, your planets are amazing and I wish I knew how you made those awesome nova/nebula things! *faved it*
Call me crazy, but I like the "dusty" look. That, with all the "nova/nebula things" (shoot, I don't know what to call them either ) makes space look so much less empty. I imagine that you were actually in space, you'd see as many stars.
The dusty look does make it less empty, but it just... looks dusty XD lol I sound stubborn. It's still great, but I was just saying I think there's a bit too much. Different artists have different ways of adding dust/novas/gas, etc to their background to make it look less empty so yeah
Good point actually I think they give a more cinematic feel, but sometimes photographers may want something more artistic and subtle. Any lens flare that isn't Photoshop's default one can look cool though
