Distant Regions by Nuukeer Distant Regions by Nuukeer
A space scene depicting an unknown galaxy, very far away...
This one took quite some time, but it came out quite good IMO. There are of course several things I could improve, but given the fact that the original image is so huge (5.5 gigs of PSB file, and the photoshop "temp" file is 30 gigs in size, glad my 32 bit XP has not crashed once), and such a high resolution (16000 * 12000) I reckon it is fine enough.

This was inspired by :iconpr3t3nd3r:'s several galaxies.

is that the milky way because it looks like the millky way?

Well, no one knows what the milky way exactly looks like (although it has been calculated to be a barred spiral fairly recently by scientists). It can be any galaxy your imagination desires!

Really stunning work! I'm impressed! I really love the colors but I think the starfield could be better.
Just a technical question: did you use standard brushes, textured one, clouds images or what else? Thanks

Thanks! Yeah, the starfield can def'n be improved. I used images of clouds and a few other techniques.

how do you work with such a high resolution like that? xD wow.

:iconnuukeer:
Nuukeer Featured By Owner Aug 16, 2009
I just like high resolutions :) You get better details when scaling down ^^ though it's really slow with 32 bit XP (I have vista 64 installed, but I almost never use it) which only handles 3.2 gigs of RAM. Thank you.

Thank you! I think I can improve the starfield a bit (though I spent a lot of time on that) and one of the comets I made quickly, as well as a few other aspects. :P

Hehe thanks! That galaxy is quite complicated, it is harder to get one looking good when seen from the upper side, than to make one sidewards (like 'galactic segregation';).

Hmm, it almost looks like the middle one is connected at the bottom, and there's that one in the upper corner with the greenish stars. And that red puny one, which is very far away. :P
