Also a quite different nebulae from what I usually do...

Please tell me what you think

Just recently became interested in this sort of art, very tricky process but in the end I got there. I just love Spacescapes, they make a perfect wallpaper.
Photoshop CS4 5 Hours mainly because of experimenting with colours and layer styles.

I proudly present to you:
Polaris: Southern Lights

This was part of the adventure that the crew of the Grande Explorator series had witnessed on their way to the Center of the Universe:



This was just one stop out of many the crew has made to study all weird and mysterious anomalies the universe had to offer.
Little did they know that these magical lightnings and magnetic spectacle had its roots in the source of all we know and all we live in. The very Center of the Universe.



Just a small quick piece (about 3 hours or so).
Meant to remake the old Polaris piece a long time ago.
Finally got it done.

This is only a test. Bryce, the 3d program I use to render all planets and 3d art... doesn't do good space effects. One of my biggest gripes is that I am unable to make a decent atmosphere and haze with the tools I have. This morning I tried something different and did all the after effects like city lights in Photoshop instead of mashing everything in Bryce. I give the result a B-

Halo Galactic Map

This piece took me almost 2 days to complete after a week of research and reading. No one has yet produced a map such as this before for the Halo Universe, and I just wanted to open the door. Plans are in the works for a higher resolution image as well as a flash application. This project could not have been accomplished if it weren't for my friends over at Halopedia.com [link] and of course those crazy cats over at Bungie [link]

A lot of what I did here was think. I thought about where certain places would be in the scale of things and also, using my above average knowledge of where certain markers are in the actual Milky Way, I was able to put certain places - like Reach and Harvest - in an accurate position.

This is a growing piece and I would HOPE that if you have any conflict with this image you would post up your source. I would be more than happy to adjust places if I were proven wrong :)

06/08/2009
I will not be updating this version of the map. This is a piece I like and am going to keep the same. The next gen will be more "accurate" - according to some people its not perfectly accurate with their findings. Updates will be sent out.

06/09/2009
The foundation has been "broken" on the updated Haloverse Galactic Map.

For further discussion on this and the next upcoming project please view the thread here - [link]

Thank you! Enjoy!

An entire planet retro fitted with giant thrust engines, powered by an exotic energy source, turning the fortress planet into a massive moving doomsday weapon.

Inspired by the RTS game called: Planetary Annihilation.

This is the planetscape I made as the backdrop for the space battle image that I'll be uploading as soon as I get the all clear. The main image is for a cool little Asteroids-like multiplayer webgame that's in development called Rawkets.

It's a little rough around the edges here and there, being as I knew I'd be covering a good portion of it up with foreground and midground elements in the final, but it's probably not too noticeable unless you're staring at it full res like I do, rofl.

I just thought some people would like to see it without all the action, and maybe use it as a wallpaper. You can get them by clicking the download link, the sizes I've provided are:

1024x768

I took the time to create this in a program called Blender. I admit I took a tutorial, but I tweaked this a bit to my liking and to make it a little bit more unique. Oh and this is my very first upload. One step closer :D . Yes I know, I forgot the stars, but that isn't that called the learning process?

With Earth as the leader, the planets of the Solar System has turned against poor Pluto excluding him from their group of planets.

This image is build upon recent events in which Pluto has been degraded to a "dwarf planet". It is now no longer part of the classic lines of planets. It's strange when you've been able to memorize the planets ever since you were a kid, and for the future will have to leave this poor little icy rock out. :(

I liked doing a smaller project for a change. I had this simple idea, and worked on/off for about a week on completing this image. I had great fun stuffing as many little funny details into the image as I could, and I hope you enjoy this image as much as I enjoyed making it!

The inverse terraforming process of Mars applied to the Earth,
so I called it "Marsforming" :D
Although it is easier to destroy than terraform, I hope it's just sci-fi.

eh si, questa volta ho fatto il contrario :D infatti il titolo l'opposto di "terraformed Mars". Basta prendere la Terra, prosciugarla degli oceani, cancellare ogni forma di vita e spolverare la superficie con un po terra rossa e ruggine.

Gi... vengono i brividi a vederla ridotta cos, ma almeno fa ricordare quanto bello il nostro piccolo pianeta.

After shooting "Space Travel" I thought it would be fun to do a star trail. Ideally I would like to do a star trail with a stop sign. Maybe another day. I also would have liked to shoot a lot longer but there was a lot of dew in the air, and I only got 30 minutes in before the lens started to fog over.

Over 180 degree 17 Shot panorama taken on the same night as "Broken Dreams"

The left of the frame is north-east. The central bulge of the Milky Way is east with the light below that towards the horizon is the faint glow of the coming dawn. The windmill tower is south and pointing at the Southern Cross (Crux) constellation. The clump of trees is south west and the faint green cast is air glow and is caused by natural oxygen in the upper atmosphere

The more images of this I share, the more I want to go out and shoot it again. Astrophotography can be seriously addicting. I'm by no means a professional, or even experienced at it, but it's a lot of fun. I don't have the equipment necessary (like a tracking mount) to take the best photos of stars, but I do what I can. Used a high ISO and a long shutter speed to gather the light of the Milky Way (unfortunately, the long shutter caused the Milky Way to blur a little since it rotates across the sky). Adjusted the "curves" setting in Photoshop and removed grain using Topaz DeNoise. Very pleased with this result. :)

Please tell me what you think! 8-)

We marked the deaths on a map in little black tallies,
every day we counted the numbers and they had come to a strong incline.

You sat in the dust by the flames
playing with a cattail
and you asked me
“When will it be over?”

The smoke drifted into open sky above us and I tried to count the stars.

The map was held together by rivers and
railroads
and lakes.
And we were held together by a commonplace drive:

Hope.

The poem in your eyes had no backbone and it was falling apart at the seams and it made you
tired and
sad and
hopeless.

The map is held together by little black tallies on the edges from an old charcoal pencil.
And we are held together by a thread of life that could very well be

snipped.

Alas, that is out of our reach but we must remember to always
fight! and to stay alive
please keep holding on
please

Because home awaits with open arms and we are here counting stars and
we must never die.

~

The mayor warned when we came home to
never leave again
and to
never go again
and I do not understand because
we couldn’t stop that
and you told me that I understand
and that he doesn’t.

Mother looked at me and my scars
disgusted
and told me to go
and told me that I shouldn’t be home.

And we found a lake from the map marked with a charcoal pencil and stayed there
and you fished
and I found berries.

Every night we counted the stars and
we were connected by constellations.

Every night we were connected by the grass beneath us
pricking the backs of our necks

and we caught the flying stars
(Fireflies)
and we were connected by constellations.

The notes of the piano rang in open air across the lake
how far can the notes stretch to connect us?  

As the lake grew, constellations stretched
far
and we never knew what color your eyes were.

Blinded by the bright light from the upcoming sun,
we both ran for cover, turning our backs on each other for the first time in
a while.

The thick trees hid us from the light well enough, but
you
weren’t
there.

We kept running.
The sun was catching up
too fast
and we ran for everything we could live for.
(each other)

I ran for you and you ran for me.
That’s all we could do until you laid on the ground,
tired and
sad and
hopeless.

You stopped running so I did too and we both were hungry for what we could’ve had.

~

When we were still in the war, they let you bring one thing from home.
You brought the idea of hope
and I brought the idea of music
and we mixed together very well.

The nights when we counted stars under the full moon
were the nights when we’d fall asleep with our arms touching.
(A sign that people are alive.)

The dust woke us up when it blew in our open mouths,
and in a shallow breath the tiny things landed on our tongues, woke us up, and
made our eyes cry.

“When do you know to go home?”
I ask myself this a lot because I know that there is no answer.
Human beings like to ask themselves things without answers and then get angry that there is no answer.
Because only they know when they put you back home.
You and I were lucky because we only had a little time in that hell,
but the others weren’t.
The little black tallies from the charcoal pencil weren’t because they
died.

The light woke us up and we knew we had to run
soon
It landed upon our eyelids and woke us up and made us cry.

I think of you as I am running and my bare feet
smack
across the dirt.
I think of you because your hair always was full of the stuff and now all it does is make me cry.

~

I think we are running along the line on one of your maps.
I think our feet are creating the dark brown streaks on the paper with the little black tallies on them.
And I think that we will never find out
the color of your eyes.

We run back to back for a while
until the light stops us and we hide beneath the tree’s leaves.

I am hungry for our arms to be touching again.
I am hungry to count stars with you and the place we did that was the war,
so could you say that
I am hungry for the war?

I am not hungry for the charcoal pencil,
but I am hungry for the hand that touched it.

I am not hungry for the dirt,
but I am hungry for the person who would lay in it carelessly.

I am hungry for the map so I can see the dark brown veins running across it with bare feet
smacking
the dark brown surface of it.

I am hungry to breathe in the commonplace drive that pushed us along the dark brown lines and out of
the war.
And I am hungry for the idea that once was.

Hope:
That is no longer existent when I am not with you
which is a side effect of
you
that I did not know about.

I would welcome any side effects that came with you with open arms, of course, because I would still have
you
I merely did not know about that one, but I am sad to see the idea go.

~

I wish you the best in all your journeys.
I wish to hear the beat of your heart against the crickets again,
but now I am afraid that the light has caught up with me
and I am afraid that
we will never find out what color my eyes are.

I wish you the best in running from the light
but remember that the without light there would be no darkness.

I am sorry to have to tell you that the dust will settle in the rocks and that
the maps have been burned.

The tallies have turned blacker than ever before.
The tallies have turned into ash from the bright flames.

The maps have fallen asleep in the glow of the flames and that
our idea:
Hope;
has been taken by the wind.

It ran with it, and I tried to catch it, but the wind cannot be caught.
Remember the first breath of the war you took when you stepped outside into the
light
of the day and remember the glow of the flames.

Remember that people are still living
(Remember that our arms touched on the nights we counted stars)
and remember the constellations that connected us.

I am not sorry to tell you, however, that no matter how far constellations can be stretched,
constellations never can be broken.
They can stretch to heaven and hell and earth and the sky and the dust and to the war
But they will never shatter
because constellations are images the mind has created.

Constellations are made by the mind and stars are tangible.
Constellations connect stars.
We are stars and we all burn in our own flames.

~

The words from your charcoal pencil make me cry.
I cannot ever count the stars without you
and I cannot ever write poetry in the dust without you.

Your words make me cry and I run
faster.

I don’t try to compete with the light because I know we’ve been running with our backs to each other for the
whole
time.

The wind trips me and it’s fingers comb through my hair on the way down.
dust from the ground tickles my tongue and the wind left something in my brain.
our idea:
Hope;
has been taken by the wind.

“Are you the dust, now?”
I feel your thumb across my cheekbone and I am
yearning
for what we could’ve had.

“Are you the wind, now?”
I feel your hand in mine and you lift me to my feet.
My face is dark brown covered with dust
but as I run the wind cleans it off.

“I have never been so tired,” I tell you.

I am so hungry for you.

I am starving
and I am sick with what we could’ve had.
i wrote a thing
it turned into a longer thing and it's like a chain of poems chapter book situation idk
