Terragen, Photoshop, and Apophisis
Not totally cool on the stars being brighter over on the left where the sun is as opposed to being brighter on the right side, where it's darker. Stars fade out when a brighter object is in front. Cool piece nonetheless.
Yes, I know that and was completely aware of what I was doing. But I think it adds to the surrealism.
I think the flare looks fine tbh, I would change the colour of those rays coming out of it to an orangey colour if I were you though (make sure the blending mode for them is screen or addition!)
Nice job but you could put more detail on the lens flare
Nah, I decided to tone it down a bit on the lens flare. Didn't wanna draw too much attention away from everything else. I kept the lens flare like that on purpose. lol
