Astral Projection by DKF Astral Projection by DKF
As i promised, my submission for the new "Spaceartists" pack. the theme is impacts. Worked on this one for several days. psd is a bout 120 mb. Around 150 layers and 7-8 hours of work. I like the way the nebulas came out and the planets look pretty good to. But enough talk from me. Comments and favs appreciated as always. Enjoy!!

Nice work :)

How come you decided to name it astral projection?

I got interested in space art because of this!

well, i always start of with the clouds filter and then i erase some and change the color. then i put some cloud layers over it and try them on multiply and colordodge till i get a reasonable result. then i use a texture on it and in the end i use the brushing technique d-design describes in his nebula tutorial. if you tweak all these things good enough you should get a good result. good luck.

i think you should take some more time and effort with your comments because every singly time you've got dozens of spelling or grammer mistakes and it just looks really messy.

Holy Crap! That's amazing. I enjoy space art, but this is easily... EASILY one of the best ones I've seen. Not entirely suer as to why, but truly amazing work here. Good Job.

Very nice nebulas. Oh oh when is the due date for the spacepack? And where can I find the nebula tutorial? I would really appreciate that.

Well i used parts of the d-design tutorial to improve my nebulas so you should check there. There is no tutorial that i ame aware of that shows you the basics of my nebulas i think.

i am so going to steal your talent someday (yoinks your planets). Planets are um, pretty O_O as usual, nebulas are good, not the best i've seen you produce however they fit in nicely :) lil asteroid explosion is a nice touch although i'd work on skewing those impact rings a lil, angle not quite right, but those flying asteroids look damn awesome, you must tell me how!! now!!! overall, superb, as usual

WHOA. *Falls back over his chair*

I'm short of breath, in awe.

The words awesome and magnificent get used way too often where they don't apply, and to me they hold a lot of weight, and this piece is both.

It's a striking and intense snapshot, the nebulas looks so realistic and the asteroid entering the plantets atmosphere is an excellent touch.

This is superb work, the lighting is terrific and the nebulas kick ass. I can actually see city lights on the planet, which is a very awesome effect. The glow from the nebulas is very kewl, gives a sense of reality to this piece. Great work man.

You put a lot of different objects in this, so i enjoy it for that. It's not just one planet, it's a bunch of things. Everything looks pretty clear and I like how you put in different kinds of planets like ones with rings and such. Great job. :)
