After countless system crashes I decided to submit this as it is. I wanted to remake the nebula but I'm not willing to kill my nerves and waste my time anymore on this PC. I will make another version of this as soon I have my new PC in my hands.
I think its not that bad at all so I thought Ill submit it, maybe some of you will like this.
Realism was completely left behind for this one because I wanted to create a nice and colorful fantasy/spacey thing.
I used own made fractals and fractal brushes to make the nebula. I had a lots of fun with it until the system crashes began.
The planets are 3D and they were made in PS.
My main inspiration were the Antennae Galaxies [link]
and the song "Zentriert Ins Antlitz - Where Their Dreams Live" which I listened a lot while I created this piece
You can check this song on youtube:
Zentriert Ins Antlitz - Where Their Dreams Live (Remix by Access to Arasaka) - [link]
Zentriert Ins Antlitz - Where Their Dreams Live - [link]
The first one is a remix version by AtA which I recommend to listen, it has a very dark and futuristic mood but the original version is nice too, its more "dreamy"
Done in Apophysis and Photoshop CS5 in approx 12 hours over two weeks or so
C&C are most welcome since I'd like to make another version of this one day.
