Firey Space by SteveAllred Firey Space by SteveAllred
Soooo kinda freaking out a little here. I've been messing around with space art for a while, but I've never really made anything cool. And then today I was a little fried from painting hard core last night, so I thought "I'll just relax and try some space art." And then this happened. . .

For my first space art attempt, I'm very happy with it. And I'm excited to hear what people think, so I wanted to post it right away.

Inspired by IC 1396 H-Alpha

I'm sure those of you who are into space art, might find a bunch of things wrong with this. And I would like to hear about it, so I can get better. Yes I know there are no planets. . . I'm not huge on them . . .

4000x2572
Photoshop for star field and nebula texture.
Paint tool Sai for all the painting (This program is so amazing!)

Stunning! When I first saw this, it reminded me of a volcano, a dark side of the sun (is there ever one? lol), maybe Mars, or a nebula. :D It's so interesting, I can't get over! I can't believe this is your first attempt, too. You did such a fabulous job. Please keep up the amazing work!

I love Paint Tool Sai too! :D

Hee, I forgot to add the one small criticism I have x3
The stars are a tad one-dimensional and have an even brightness. Try putting some behind clouds and making only the really big ones really bright :D
(I forgot to do this for a space art piece, learn from my mistakes XD)

I'm not big on planets polluting an otherwise nifty piece of spaceart, either. That's why I love this >;D
I find it hard to find really good red-sky spaceart. Another reason I love this XD
