Tidal Silence... by realityfaery Tidal Silence... by realityfaery
"Tides rolling in silence..."



Finally have another space scene to share! Yay! :dummy: The other day I came across ~SamODJ's The Sea of Stars [link] and was greatly inspired!

So for the past 3 days, I tried out a couple of techniques and did a little painting and came up with this. By far, not fantastic, but nice nonetheless :) So I'm very proud of it. Created exclusively in Photoshop CS2. Planets are old ones I created that I gave a small facelift and the cloud stock are mine as well. Hope you like!

:heart: the faery




:bulletred: WOW! One more visitor and I'll have 20,000 pageviews, love all my friends, watchers and visitors. You guys rock! So consider this a gift to all of you! :love: :dalove:

Awesome! Do you have any good hints about approaching background starfields? I want to add some star-filled backgrounds to my future space pieces. :)

Thanks and absolutely :D There are a few really great tutorials out there to get you started with making starfields. Here are a couple of good ones: [link] (manipulates rendered noise), [link] (painting your own stars), and [link] (using a custom brush to paint stars). All different techniques, but all give you a great starting point to practice to find what works for you. Personally, I used a technique similar to the first tutorial, but with the last two space artworks I did, I started practicing with painting my own. "Leona" was the first artwork I painted the stars myself and manipulated what I had painted :)

If you have any more questions, feel free to ask.

Thanks! I'm not used to doing stars digitally, so these will definitely help! I usually did stars in watercolor, spreading masking fluid with a toothbrush... but I want to create more detailed star fields :)

Charcoal can show so much emotion sometimes!

It can! I love it! Though I must confess I haven't done any traditional art in a LONG time :( So sad.

Yeah, I haven't done any traditional art that isn't an assignment for a looong time. Digital art just gives me more convenience, you know? It's easier to fix mistakes and you don't have to spend as much money on supplies. Sure, some digital painting programs are expensive, but they tend to pay for themselves in the long run.

Now that's a surprise to see you using this account! :giggle:

Why thank you :bow: Learned the longer I take with it, the better I can perfect it, so that's why art is coming farther inbetween. Thanks Ben! :dance:
