Beyond Genesis by commandersozo Beyond Genesis by commandersozo
Well, here it is: the result of all my dilly-dallying and procrastination. Beyond Genesis. It's not a perfect space scene, but I'm not a perfect sci-fi artist, or anything else for that matter. Still, I'm proud of what it is: a major accomplishment and a milestone for me. It feels like just yesterday I was rendering clouds and using the spherize effect to make a planet.

As usual, all the work on this image was done in Paint.NET, the wonderful free image editing tool.
I'd like to give a shoutout to everyone on the Paint.NET forum [link] who helped me and gave me critical feedback. Two members in particular, Cazaron and Goonfella, helped me come up with a name, an art which has always eluded me. Guys, if you two have DevART pages, post here to let me know and I'll link to them.

So, if your reading this, odds are you've viewed my work, so thank you for that. If you have comments or criticism on Beyond Genesis, post here. I love it when you do. Thanks again to everyone who helped me get this pic ready.

Me too! I would suggest looking up the likes of :iconsirgerg: or :icontaenaron: for much more impressive artwork than my own.
