Created with Photoshop around July 2010 in about 2 hours. Wanted to try something new when I took a picture of a log that looked pretty cool. That's the texture that I used for the planet. You can see its center around the bottom right of the planet. I think it look unrealistic but it's still nice in my opinion.
He started with the basic planet texture and gave me some flames to work with. This is what I came up with. I then sent it back to him where he worked some more on it and submited it as our collab for the Attrius artpack. Here's the link to the artpack: [link]
Created in early May 2010 using Photoshop CS2. Took about 2 hours. I had fun doing this. I wanted to try a few different things and for once not include a planet. Also wanted to add some white to try something new. Hope you like it!
Done in late May 2010 with PhotoShop CS2 in about 2 hours.
I was inspired by a bunch of space artists that kept making really subtle space scenes where there was almost no light except for at the light source. I also wanted to practice my sunrises and involve other colors than the classic blue so I added green.
Created on October 2nd, one of my latest pieces. I finally decided to use a more original texture. I realized that I had been using the same texture over and over again of one which is a picture I had taken of a wall in Santa Monica a year ago
So I experimented a bit. I noticed a few flaws such as too many stars, not enough atmosphere on the planet in the forefront and too saturated colors. But I still uploaded to see what you guys think of it. Feel free to give me any feedback!
Wow this dates back from October 2010! I haven't been able to upload it until now so here it is. It's one of my latest projects. Now that I got a new laptop and CS5 I'll be able to do some new things. Let me know what you think. I really think I can improve on this so yeah.
A quick horizon shot of a planet with a nebulae in the background. I started out with a nebulae that turned out not so badly, but the piece itself was a bit empty. So I added the planet. But it gave me a really hard time even though I like how it turned out.
After 3 hours of working on it I saved it. I thought I saved it in a psd file so I could work on it later but I saved it in a png file... Which means I couldn't fix any problems. One of those being the starfield that I didn't notice I messed up lol So I added a starfield on top of the piece. But now it's too crowded to my taste.
