Widescreen only: 1920x1200 • 1680x1050 • 1440x900 • 1280x800
Created in Photoshop CS4 in 6 or 7 hours.
This was for an art challenge on LiveJournal, the criteria being "space". I wasn't going to be literal about it; I was going to do something about the emotional space between people. Then I thought it might be fun to make a star field to put in the background - I'd only made one previously and had always wanted to do another. When I got going on the star field, however, I kind of got carried away and so the final piece ended up being a literal outerspace thing. Its not fantastic, as far as digital spaceworks go but it was good practice. I really envy the people who can do photo-realistic space art - especially nebulas; I'd love to learn to make one!
So, all done in Photoshop, took about 6 or 7 hours.
Thank you to some of the nifty tutorials found at SolarVoyager, including the two Greg Martin tuts I'd used previously (the man is THE master at creating spacefields - check out his illustrations at his site).
