Gyre by dinyctis Gyre by dinyctis
I mentioned that i would be submitting my favorite months of the 2005 calendar as wallpapers, so this is the first one to go

A whole lot of airbrushing, really. In fact, this is 2 prototype galaxies that i made put together. Making galaxies is so much fun, you have no idea.

If you want to, feel free to leave a thought or two :)

Very nice. This is all with Photoshop? Or physical airbrushing?

Very great work and total photo-realistic look. I wished I could found such great tutorials on how making so cool looking galaxies. All PS Tuts make no help doing similar as your good looking one.

Amazing, the only thing i don't like/wouldn't do in the future, is the too many repetitive stars.

Wonderful work, man. I'm an aspiring space artist. Could you give me a few little heads up tips on making nebulae? I'm somewhat lost. =P

Regardless, this is a wonderous piece. Fav + Watch(Coming from me, that's pretty big :P)

how do yo get galaxies to work. i tried doing some but they didn't turn out right. is there any tips you can give me please.

:icondinyctis:
dinyctis Featured By Owner Nov 14, 2005
I suggest you go here and immerse yourself in the imagery. Study the galaxies, their angles, texture, light, arms, displacement, star concentration, color, etc.

Be aware though, making them is a process, and it takes a lot of steps before it even starts to look like a galaxy at all :)

thankyou, i will have a look thankyou, i realise that it will take a while to pruce but if it works then it should be well worth it. do you work with different layers or on the same layer with different effects and filters etc. again thankyou for the help :D

dinyctis Featured By Owner Nov 14, 2005
I work with a lot of different layers. On a side note, i make all the work and then i make a layer set with all the colors.

.. the more i stare at this picture.. the more im starting to understand ur techniques.. u must have a lot of patients.. sigh:: i've tried to make a galaxy myself.. but i didnt kno enough techniques to approach it.. very wonderful work.. i especially love the glow of the star.. the color expansion u gave it is brillant.

You're actually doing what i do. Except that i look at pictures of actual galaxies, since there arent a lot of space artists who can pull off a galaxy :)

Yes, patience is key. At first they look like crap, but within 20 minutes or so they start taking shape. They are quite fun to paint :)

this is really cool man.. i have always been fascinated with space and visit the NASA galleries from time to time.. the only thing is now i am wondering if the Hubble Space telescope is a fraud and it is just you creating these sweet ass images ;)
