Working on this at work. Not sure if I'm going to take it any further but who knows?

EDIT: Thanks, spaceart chat! (especially *ChrisCold )

This has got to be one of the most detailed and brilliant close ups of a galaxy I've ever seen. Perspective, texture, lighting, even down to the colors are unique, realistic, and spot on. Seriously, impressive job!

Thanks! I actually think I could've done better, I've seen better depictions of galaxies, but I feel that this was a pretty decent attempt, especially in light of my previous attempts.

I looked through your gallery and to be honest, I don't have any specific crits. Just keep working at it, adding in details and refining your techniques. Don't be afraid to put any amount of time into a piece, the longer it takes the better it will be!

Well this: [link] is a good place to start. As for how I made this, there isn't really much to say, I mostly used my nebula brushes:[link] along with the default brushes in Photoshop and painted it :P

Didn't quit on it dude, this was just something that was basically ready and I just needed to tweak it and post it. You wanted two planets, no shading?

arisechicken117 Featured By Owner Jul 27, 2010  Student Digital Artist
Well the blue giant is where the light source is coming from. It doesn't have to be 2 planets. I was just making suggestions on where to put things. Do w.e you like. We both have our pros and cons

dude, this is dope. i like everything except the smaller crap in the top (those smaller galaxies), i think they really detract from the piece a lot. but the foreground galaxy is coming along amazingly.
