Wooo...it was almost a year ago since I made my previous space art. Quite long ago ehhh...I almost forgot my own techniques
I started this in vue. I wanted to create a good looking earthlike 3D procedural planet. It was quite time consuming, I spend more time on creating the planet itself than the whole scene and Im still not 100% satisfied with it . Later on I decided to make it more interesting, so I made the asteroids and opened it in PS and started painting...
Beauty is a portrait style scene that i have been experimenting with, as i always want to test out new methods and styles to achieve unique and exiting effects. With this in mind i focused on noise on this one, and the reason for that is simple.
I want to create something that was meant to be like a photo not taken on or from earth, but with equipment that have been in space for a long time. I tried to underline the following by giving it a shortage of details and at the same time, give it an artistik look.
