Now that I've looked up how to do planets correctly:

Much better, but three minor things could improve it. The lighting on the planet and ship is off, and the stars are too clustered and bright. The text could also be tweaked a bit.

Ah yes I see the lighting problem now. I should've spun the planet maybe 15 degrees counterclockwise to fix it.

I say take the text out, it doesn't work with a sig like this. Also, lower the stars behind the planet and the ship. I did notice a mistake which is the huge blur on the stars by the top of the planet.

The ship seems over-sharpened, imo. Like what's stated, the stars seem pretty bright and in-your-face. Planet is better, but it's still kinda meh. And the lighting is fine, honestly. Space art doesn't always have to make sense, light refracts off of anything. Like Alusion said, remove the text.


Now for what I like, color choice is pretty cool. Planet size is quite right.

Keep it up. {Cheesy}

I just dont like how sharp the stars are looking. I love that fact your using a ship, you dont often see them so well integrated (now uve fixed the lighting).

It is annoyingly difficult to find a good shot of the ship. I wanted something more like 3/4 perspective, but had to settle for a head-on view.
