The Second Incident by Baro The Second Incident by Baro
One day i went buy to the place where i shot neverlasting, and dude, this scenery has changed,... so i picket my camera to present you with this lil shot.
you know what i mean??? Okay seriously, I didn't like Neverlasting anymore, so i went for a second edition. Changed the colours and put a little more detail into the scenery.
As you can see there are now some planets and asteroids plus a little more lighting. Hope you like it.

Don't ask me how many Layers, but my PC was struggleing with the psd file size every minute...

This is actually not my newest piece of work, which i mentioned in my journal... still working on that :-p


comments and :+fav:'s are very much appreciated

That's a large file! Better to appreciate all the detail :) Love the ateroid belts! But I do like the original's colors a bit better; more space-like to me.
This one is gorgeous, though! Nice work!

The asteroids are a nice touch.
I just wanna know... are your light rays painted by hand or do you use a blur?

thx :). i used a blur and finised it off with a little editing, but the light rays are generally blurs...

awesome work. you stated about brush textures and just going crazy, i'd like the names of them as well because i'm struggling to compose a decent nebula as well. :+fav: for sure

thank you dude. The link to the texture is in the comment above. have fun :). And keep at it, I also know the great frustration nebula painting can bring up, but if you don't stop trying you will improve!!!

thx a lot for the comment and :+fav: :)

Not all artists deserve a good comment, you on the other hand do so here you go:
Moves over the picture to other monitor okay here we go:

Okay what strikes me first and most is the big stars very well done, then the asteroids come to sight.
I dont know if you have 3dsmax but distynctis has a great tutorial on how to make decent asteroids which look awesome i would be very willing to help you with them cause the lighting on yours and texture on yours is rather poor. their size on the other hand is perfect.

On the topic of lighting there are several stars inside the nebula, what you should do is trace the light they put out iow make the nebula around it lighter but thats is just a minor technical detail.
The light rays are very well done as well ass the small planets are very well done also the lighting on them. they could do with a little more bumb though.

Then onto the thing what this piece is mainly about the nebula. VERY WELL DONE. no kidding there are parts in it that I reaaally love. for instance the part where the light hits the dark a little under the left top is a prime example of that really well done. Please share your brush type with me cause im really falling for this one.

And the finishing is also very well done borders on the side to enhance the vertigo of the picture. and the lettering is also very well done. Im not too sure about the white borders they could have done with a lower opacity but thats just minor.

Overall the piece could have done with a little more depth but even still its very well done. I am really impressed and I can do nothing short than fave this one.
Excelent work and please share your brush with me ;)

first of all: thank you so much for this comment. it is very helpfull and also pleasing :D.
I'm glad you like the stars and thx for the :+fav:.

Yes i do have 3dmax but i have no idea how to use it. I find it very difficult to learn how to handle the interface, i didn't know about the tutorial though, so thx for telling me, i'll have a good look at it.
I used photoshop for the asteroids and i'm glad you like them except for the lighting and texture, because the size and composition is why i also like them. however the possiblities of lighting and texturing asteroids in photoshop without great painting skills knows limits as i experianced while working on this piece...

The stars inside the nebula do actually make it a little lighter at that point, but i agree that it is not totally visible to the eye. But i think that, given the fact that nobody has ever seen a nebula like this, it leaves a lot to the imagination, so i don't think it sets the picture down in quality.
The bump of the planets was something i too thought about and maybe you are right, but in the end i just felt that they should underline the softness and flow of the image and thus not have a "large amount of bump".

:D I'm very glad you like the nebula because as I could not have put it better, it is the main focus of the image. The texture on top of the brush is the same that you can find in Greg Martin's planet creation tutorial. I picked it up ages ago and since then it has been my favourite brush. here is a [link] .
I also used a lot of pictures of clouds which i filtered out of photos and coloured black to make the edges of the nebula more individual and interesting. The actual texture is visible a little over the title on the right hand side.

To finish, i might say that it has been uplifting to get such a detailed comment and that i'd be glad to accept your help with the asteroids,... just add me to msn and we can figure it out sometime soon.

God, man, you must tell me how to draw nebulas on day.

This is fantastic.

thank you. just get a texture on the brush and go crazy O_o. the problem with nebulas is that there is no general rule to creating one...

yeah. that is exactly what it's all about and i myself are only at the very beginning. what might help is to come up with some cind of system in which you create you're nebula from raw to detailed. sry that i can't give you more advice, but truely don't know all there is to know...
