Surreality by JoeyJazz Surreality by JoeyJazz
Real surreal... ...or whatever...

And before you ask - yes, it's all painted (except the planet/moon textures). No hubble images used.

This is a soothing piece with a surreal feel to it (Obviously the goal was achieved). The pinkish glow of the nebulae gives off creates a calm and lazy air around the planet and moons which are placed in a way that creates a horizontal line across the plane of the piece.
These factors combined are what create the actual surreality that is this piece, the fact that the planets, moons, and stars (all things that we know simply float within the zero gravity vacuum of space) seem to be suspended in the nothingness to such a degree that there would be no movement what so ever, just the glow of a few close stars and the nebulae. Bodies simply frozen in time, which for a known fact is impossible because there is always movement in space; hence the surreality. This image is so still that it's mind blowing. I look at it and wish that I could take in a sight like this in person.
Asides from that, what makes this scape so successful is the depth that is created, allowing the eye to wander from the larger bodies to the connect-the-dots of a variety of stars that are what form the very effect of depth itself, with the larger brighter stars creating a close plane, and smaller, dimmer stars receding slowly back into space, creating the endless background.
The style is beautiful and very well executed, and I think that this is a wonderful, awe inspiring piece.
What do you think?

I feel so comforting looking at an art piece like this. Space scenes that show colors like this that match those as if the entire scene was in the atmosphere of a planet really bring out its beauty.

Standard PS brush (I think it was the chalk 23 brush ... although, adequately customized by myself).

Has a nice and heavenly look to it. The colours are nice and how the planets are in a well-lit environment makes a nice change from the usual "dark" space art. Well done :)

Anyway - the depth vs. detail is always a struggle
and where is more of one always must be less of the other.
(if you say it right, it sounds like a rhyme :D )
