Wow this is an old work that i realized i havent submitted to deviantART. I've had it in my website for a while now, but for some reason i didnt submit it here.
Well, this has actually made its way into deviantART, since i used it in "space lane"
However, i think it's cool enough that it deserves a submission of its own, to grace a desktop somewhere.
This was my first attempt at depicting a galaxy. It took me about 3 hours i think, and then i modified a few things whenever i opened it, which was every couple of days. In fact, i changed its background about 10 minutes ago
How did i do this? it was rather simple (no brushing whatsoever), i would write a tutorial but im an evil son of a bitch and i dont feel like sharing this particular technique. I learned it through experimenting, and that is the only way to learn. Yes, im sure you're swearing up and down, and i understand. I used to be the same way, but it didnt take me long until i started experimenting and having the joy of doing something cool on my own.
Nothing else to say, really. This doesnt have a dramatic message, it is just a successful experiment (though not perfect, i can spot flaws which will only be fixed by practice).
