I voted for Creative but Realistic, but it's tough for me. I'm all for things that stretch realism and stuff, but not too far. I don't want to see lighting being incorrect or stars in front of planets. Other than that, pretty much everything is fair game.
I remember =JoeJesus made a poll like this a long time ago While I do respect those who can create full-realistic space scenes, I tend to find most a little bit boring and prefer more surreal and unusual features...shiny colours is a plus, provided people don't go overboard with too much shiny effects...planets aren't made of chrome after all
Yeah, I absolutly agree with you. its the same with a drawing, you dont trace every single shadow, line, and colour of it, but try to make a representation of the world you see, thats the magic of art. It can look even better than the real thing, even if its not realistic . I guess trying to find this middle line between realism and creativity, is the key to make better art
