After countless system crashes I decided to submit this as it is. I wanted to remake the nebula but I'm not willing to kill my nerves and waste my time anymore on this PC. I will make another version of this as soon I have my new PC in my hands.
I think its not that bad at all so I thought Ill submit it, maybe some of you will like this.

Realism was completely left behind for this one because I wanted to create a nice and colorful fantasy/spacey thing.
I used own made fractals and fractal brushes to make the nebula. I had a lots of fun with it until the system crashes began. ;)
The planets are 3D and they were made in PS.

My main inspiration were the Antennae Galaxies [link] and the song "Zentriert Ins Antlitz - Where Their Dreams Live" which I listened a lot while I created this piece
You can check this song on youtube:
Zentriert Ins Antlitz - Where Their Dreams Live (Remix by Access to Arasaka) - [link]
Zentriert Ins Antlitz - Where Their Dreams Live - [link]
The first one is a remix version by AtA which I recommend to listen, it has a very dark and futuristic mood but the original version is nice too, its more "dreamy"

Done in Apophysis and Photoshop CS5 in approx 12 hours over two weeks or so ;)

C&C are most welcome since I'd like to make another version of this one day.

Cheers ;)

My second galaxy.
I think its way better than the first one [link] but still need some more improvements. Ill keep up with practicing so keep your eyes open :D more to come soon.
Also I promised a tutorial about how to make galaxies like this. I will keep my word I just need some time to improve this technique and get better.

Done in PS CS5 in approx 5 hours.

C&C are most welcome!

Happy new year to everyone! :w00t:
This is my first piece of 2012! ;) Also this is a new version of my first space scene: De-Light [link]
I always wanted to make new versions of some of my oldest works I just had to wait for my new PC. I might recreate some of them during this year, so suggestions are welcome :D If you like some of my older works but you think it could be done better just say it :) Critiques are always welcome!

This one was done in PS and Vue in approx 10h, no stocks were used.

C&C are most welcome!

Update: Made the rings and the shadows on the planet a bit darker and changed the flares.

(3) changed the planet in the top left corner made it look like it was being blasted away.
(4) added 2 comets in the system.
(5) added a bright blast to the impact on the planet in top left.
(6)fixed a few dust and lighting problems.

[link]

A star has went supernova these were that last known images of that system.

:)!!!!! PLEASE DOWNLOAD FOR THE BEST QUALITY!!!!!:)

:)!!!!! PLEASE COMMENT IF YOU CAN!!!!!:)

:D!!!!! PLEASE READ DESCRIPTION!!!!!:D



update: added text, and a contrast layer. i pumped up the contrast alot and the scene came out so much more stunning!


hi guys, heres my i year deviant anniversary which i proudly call:


The Hieroglyphs

Every planet in the universe,
Whether: young or old, big or small, gaseous or rocky, hot or cold,
Has their own story to tell.
A story that tells of their birth, life and possibly death.
Each planet is unique; non are the same.
Each planet formed in a different place in our universe,
Thus all their stories are unique and different.
But, as they are the universe's children,
Their stories all have a common point.
They all tell a part of the universe's story.
And the point i am trying to make is that:
All Planets are The Hieroglyphs of the Universe!




didn't i tell you guys in my journal that it'll be worth the wait!:D
and yes i know there aren't any hot or cold planets in the image, but just go with it!^^;
got the idea thursday night, started friday morning, finished saturday night, posted sunday morning!:p

i tried new techniques too:

-a colour layer over the image to help everything blend in!
-light rays! ooh!:faint:
-a vantage point closer to the planets rings too obtain higher perspective on the rings!
-angled my star brushes too! a major improvement from that bland other one!:D
-planet shadows onto the nebula!
-angled the gas giant from its rings, looks much better and interesting like that!;D
-and also, you may not notice it, but the stars aren't as numerous and random and large as some of my previous pieces. there more organised, clustered and neater!:clap:

i would also like give my thanks to esk6a:iconesk6a: for help and advice on how to use the colour layer for ambient lighting, and how to make the light rays!:)

so comments and critiques are most welcome and enjoy the image!:D

_______________________________________________________________________________________

yes!:la: i finally found time for my space art again! and i'm back with the sci-fi too!:D took about 7 hours on this and maybe 80 layers.
i also tried out a few new techniques too, especially with the lens flare, where i tampered with the settings and got that beauty you see there!:)
and the image itself feels different from all of my other work to!:P probably because it feels more natural. and the image is also more empty, but it still looks good!

:)!!!DOWNLOAD FOR BEST QUALITY!!!:)

EDIT: some major changes were made to the image where the quality on the foreground moon was increased thanks to a tutorial from :iconbaro:. also, the rings were changed. i hope the improvements are noticed by others and hope you all enjoy the image!:)

heres my very first orbital!:) and i think it came fearly well for a first try, except the foreground moon came out with low quality because i made its finished size too small, so when i blew it up, the detail ended up getting blured.:( also this took me about 2 weeks to complete, been fidling around with features to see the different effects they had on the image. anyways, hope you guys like it!:)

I have had an idea about Black Holes lately.

What if they didnt look like a monster in space? What if it was a beautiful scenery, but a lethal one?

Well, after my Spectre multi display wallpaper pack. I thought i could do more with some of the scenery and planets. So i went back to one of my initial thoughts about scale, so i added a mountain and some distand land just to give some perspective to the planet (the one that the POV is taken from)

And what is a image done by me without space:D, so i added space (of course) and i try to learn aboutlighting and how it affects the scenery (i think i got it right with the mountains and planets:))

So i hope you like it, and i will come back with some more once they are done:D

untill then, have a nice day and i will see you in a few:D

"Empty Rumours" Artist's Description:

There's a long and most likely uninteresting story behind how this image got it's name and why I created it the way I did.
But as it is long and most likely uninteresting, I'll save telling it for now.

*Edit - So I guess I goofed a bit on some of my files and saved as the wrong type or with diminished quality. So please forgive me if these look excessively dark or saturated; I'll try to fix it.


I would appreciate a :+fav: if you download :)

"Transfiguration" Artist's Description:

More fractals and whatnot put together in Photoshop :)
I'm forever experimenting with ideas and techniques and most of my stuff is the result of such. I doubt this is realistic (I doubt much of what I create is) but personally, I like it for the lack of realism. Or maybe it's just the pretty lights and colors.

(Note that this was made for an HD computer screen. Some details and color variances will unfortunately be lost on most monitors.)

"An Impossible Dance" Artist's Description:

More practice on creating and integrating.


I didn't really like the way stars looked, so I for the most part kept 'em out. Artistic license. Or something like that :)

And I happen to know, if you stare at the light long enough, it looks like the two planets are dancing. (Not that I recommend staring into lights.)


I almost forgot, I used some of my own stock for this, you can download here: [link] :D (No worries, it's a dA link)


I would appreciate a :+fav: if you download :)

A reflection nebula beyond the confines of the Milky Way, far beyond the realm of the present. Young stars begin to come into existence throughout this vast ocean of molecular dust, glowing a bright blue from the oxygen-rich clouds. It is hypothesized that if close observation was possible, one could witness the reflected light shimmer over the crest of the magnificent, rolling clouds.

So go ahead, breathe it in. And let your mind wonder.

Fullview enhances the experience.

Take another look at the upcoming pack here: [link]

An image of wondrous stellar nursery Alphi (fictional) as it exists with thousands upon thousands of hot burning stars ignited the gaseous surroundings and producing a colorfully fantastic display!

<<<<Journal Log 029::
<<Welcome back Captain Richards

...Beginning Log

«//Oct.3019»
«04:28//»


///.../// Feels like years have passed gettin here. Maybe in Pre-Tech, but not now. No, should've been here yesterday. But those damn engines keep breaking. Worthless shit, can't believe E|Gov won't give us our upgrade yet. Anyway, made it to the Algor Duality System this morning and caught our first glimpse of what we're gonna be dealing with the next few years. This planet, Pheno, is an absolute fuckin wreck. God only knows what else we'll find out here. Think the boys at Journey sent us the wrong coordinates...nothing here looks the least bit hospitable.

"There's asteroids everywhere...it's hard to even imagine being able to get through here without our shields takin a beating. Looks like the bottom of the surface had a bad run in with some sort of....HOLY SHIT!! Did you see that explosion on the bottom of Pheno. There's rocks flying everywhere! Jons, pull us outta range before those rocks tear us apart!"

"Aye aye sir. Readjusting course. Any place in mind?"

"I don't give a shit, just anywhere but here! Once we come those rocks pass us we'll come back in for a reevaluation."

"Understood. I'm pulling back towards Rankor. We can asses the situation there, maybe kill two birds with one stone."

"Sounds wonderful." As we pulled away, I noticed the particularly warm feeling of Algor. Reminded me of home, the Sun, Karol. But that was a long time ago...a very long time ago. Now, all I can do is pray, pray that she is safe, pray they are all safe. God will watch over them, keep them safe. And we'll be together again. The light is soothing to me, it takes me in, gives me comfort. And I feel as though I'm basking in His eternal light. ///...///


Ending Log...

<<Log Successfully Saved...Goodbye//



Thank you in advance to those who :+fav: if I can't thank you personally. I really appreciate them!
