"Westward Conspiracy" Artist's Description:

This isn't how I was planning on finishing it, but I hurt my arm and have to take a PS break :P

And with school starting in LESS THAN A WEEK I dunno if I'll actually be able to work on it more. So I figured up as is was better than having it take up space on my computer :)

And, a dangerous pastime it may be, I was thinking. I do all my work on a laptop. I've never been trained, I don't have a tablet or even a mouse (just that lovely little pad which is breaking down :P). So all in all, I'm pretty freaking pleased with what I can do so far :)

And I almost forgot, I used some of my own stock for this, you can download here: [link] :D



I would appreciate a :+fav: if you download :)

I usually make the nebulae with a combination of painting and fractals from Apophysis. It's usually one or two base layers of soft colors, and then several interesting fractals on top of the base colors, set to linear dodge :)

Amazing work. :D
I love the colour scheme, red puts across a very strong mood. :)
Also, the lighting on the planet looks great, and I love the chunks of rock streaming out across it.

This is great :) But i think you should save your wallpapers as JPG instead og PNG in the future, Windows 7 gives PNG images bad quality when using it as a wallpaper ;)

Thanks! And thanks for the tip too. Someone had told me I should try PNGs and I didn't see any quality issues on my screen. But I do think I'll stick with JPGs :D

nice work, even if it is in need of some colouring in my opinion. Some purple and orange would fit i think. But this is just a suggestion.

I must say: it is actually awesome as it is.
Simple, to the point, almost bombastic, dominant...
I very much like the simplicity and yet have such powerful outcome.

Thanks for the suggestion! Considering the intended look of this piece though, I'm not sure purple would really fit. But I'll keep more color variance in mind for future work :)
