wow i love it, it really reminds one of mine i done recently, and after a submited mine soth yours that was made a long time before yours better of course, maybe you wanna check mine out and give me your opinion about it, its the APOCALYTIC,
Just checked it - it ain't bad, although I don't like the border for some reason :S Other than that, it just seems a little bit low quality in some parts, although its kinda nice Weird how we both had similar ideas ^^
you managed to capture the hot environment near the star, that's awesome. and the star itself is nicely executed too. and of course, awesome planet textures, altho it doesn't remind of a planet that is very very close to its sun. anyway, gorgeous creation man. i like it.
inspired by hoevelkamp eh... well i must say its better then his just that sun on left could be more 'in picture'... you know moved bit to right side. i like a lot the texture of right planet also those fractals from sun overall its very warm impressive picture, hoevever its for me too overcolored but i suppose you want to have it like that
i have to say this wasnt inspired by hoevelkamps piece, although looking at it i can see the similarity ill have a go at extending the sun and do a "v2" at some point ^^ i see what you mean by overcoloured, but i like it like that
