(1) new nebula dust (2) added a new lens flair to the bright blast of the supernova. (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. (7) changed the nebula colour. (8) added logo (The End)
I painted the effect onto the planet that's breaking apart...pixel by pixel.....and smudge tool is my BEST FRIEND! lol
I also used a Planetary nebula the i could not find the name of but i got the link.
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.
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 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.
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:
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! 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!
i tried new techniques too:
-a colour layer over the image to help everything blend in! -light rays! ooh! -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! -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!
i would also like give my thanks to esk6a 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!
yes! i finally found time for my space art again! and i'm back with the sci-fi too! 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! probably because it feels more natural. and the image is also more empty, but it still looks good!
Just another sunset on an alien world. Or is it...!?
so, enjoy the image guys! and as i always say, favs, critiques and comments are welcome and appreciated!
hello everyone! sorry i haven't submitted anything in like a month, but now i return with my 3000 pageviews special! yay! thank you to all my watchers, friends and viewers! this couldn't have happened without your support!
This is the Omegalon System and its situated in the Chronus Nebula. yes, the same nebula as the Alpharyx System[link] , just on the opposite side of it! it is inhabited by the Galdorians, a race who are ranked highly in technology, like the Protians of the Alpharyx System. they also bear a resemblance to we Humans. but unlike the Protians, they prefered to stay as organic lifeforms. they do take part in trade with the Protians, The Daptaris System[link] and The Zodis Race[link] .
here, we see the large gas giant Dorium and 4 of its moons, 3 of which are important:
the moon Subera(lower left) is the same size as Earth and has just more land to water. this is the very first moon where the Galdorians evolved. they then colanised the outer moons. the moon is considered a very beautiful place and many couples from this system and others come for the scenery. the nights on this moon are especially beautiful when the cities are lit up and Dorium is in the sky!
the moon Cydona(top right) was the second moon colonised by the race and is slighty smaller than Subera. it is more land than water and has a high ubandance of minerals in its crust. exporting these minerals brings quite alot of money to the system, and so, the moon acts as the economic centre for the system. all ships coming from or going to other systems must first travel to this moon for clearance.
the moon Zenyx(foreground) is slightly smaller Cydona and acts as a resurch facility in the system. all experiments in the system are performed on this moon and it is home to the some of the most advanced technology from this system.
so, again thanks for all the support and i hope you guys like it and comment if you can!
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.

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

Thank you in advance to those who if I can't thank you personally. I really appreciate them!
One piece from 2011. Oringinally done in CS3, textures for planets created using Vue 8.5. I fixed it up a bit in Photoshop CS3 and Lightroom. Rabies Star Brush set by Rabieshund Thanks for taking a look.
This is a piece from 2011 that I worked on in my spare time during the summer. My skills at that point were not the best so I touched it up a bit more in Photoshop and then took it into Lightroom. It was oringinally created using CS3. Planets and textures are oringinally created by me. Star brushes used were a combination of Rabieshund's star brush set and my own.
