Timeless Memories by Regulus36 Timeless Memories by Regulus36
Not a realistic view so much, I wanted the feeling of a deep field image ([link]) but with a more artistic presentation. This is my first contest entry here on dA, so wish me luck :)

Used Rabieshund brush set (I think :P) [link]

Look great! Would you make a good galaxy tut? I like these galaxies.

Making a tutorial would be difficult because i was experimenting so much when i made these. This is only my second pic with galaxies, and i don't really have a "method" .... i just sort of start painting :lol: I can say that it helps to start with a big white X in PS, then run the twirl filter on it, that will give you a good shape for your galaxy to start. From there, it was just a lot of painting, erasing, and painting some more ;) My best advice i think would be to study photos of galaxies, try [link] and you might like this site [link] If you have any specific q's, ask away and i'll do what i can.

This looking really good! Maybe a bit too many galaxies for my taste :P but they are done so well, each of them deserves to be in the picture. :D Also the planet textures are really nice.

Thanks :) I wanted the feel of a deep field image (which usually show dozens if not hundreds of galaxies) so i knew there would be a lot of galaxies and be a little crowded ....... but now I think it might work better without the nearby planets to distract you, leaving the focus only on the galaxies - what do you think?

I don't know; it might be better without the closest planet, but that's up to you. It's a fantastic piece either way. :)
