Ice And Fire by Superiorgamer Ice And Fire by Superiorgamer
A few of my friends saw this work and thought it looked sorta like good and evil so heck, I thought I'd enter. Not that I stand even a remote chance of winning. Oh well, maybe it will get a view or two. Hope you enjoy! :)


This is my desktop version. Soon enough i'll make a pack if anyone likes it.

It's just beautiful.. and so unique in a sea of space-scenes. Any chance of getting it in a 1920x1200?? I'd love to use it on my desktop!

how did you do the "clouds" in the nebula ?
i don't want to hear sth about the bigger forms on the sides. I want to know how you did the change from blue to black and from red to black. in this areas are also some ""white" clouds" the "fog".

and how did you do the enlighted white areas ?
What is your technique in doing it so small ? but still shiny ? U know ? Because when i am using a brush with 0% hardness and 20 % flow in white colour it will not end in forms like your light is ...

Well, i'm no expert and must be dumb luck on alot of things your asking about. The color change is quite simple. Just do 2 color balance layers and use a gradient layer mask to get the effect you want.

Painting under these with a white brush on low opacity does the glow trick. The abstract c4dish was from a brush set I downloaded years ago. Then I do alot of smudging to get it to look the way I want to (the nebula). It helps to work with a image thats at a large resolution.

In order...
basically...
1st. layer --> Black
2nd. layer --> Filer>render>Clouds>+Solarize filters to give nebula feild>set to low opacity
3rd. layer --> Black gradients for emphasize center
4th. layer --> Abstract Brushes
5th. layer --> Bright nebula (soft brush white) +smudge
6th. layer --> Starfeild (noise+random brushes)
7-8th. layer --> Color Balence layers
+. layer --> All types of extra effects, brushings..ect to improve image.

Hope that gives you an idea of how I made it.

Hmm, perhaps a little clich'e, but a scene like this is a rite of passage for any space artist, if I didn't have one already, I'd probably make one for the contest =p

Hmm, the horsehead nebula seems a little obvious in there, but overall it's a pretty cool scene 8-)

I like originality! Infact, the plan for my next piece is to do a tree ecosystem on a island like the deviant art logo =D

Actually, its a rework of my old piece. I forgot to include that in my note. [link]

I guess i'm retaking my right of passage. ;)

Oh yeah, I thought you did one like this already (lol, you can seethe same nebula twice in the old version :giggle:)

Sucks how this contest happened as late as it did, I actually have two that would be potential entries, but I'm not re-submitting them for a miniscule chance of winning :p something tells me some manga or fanasy-art peice will win :hmm: good luck anyway though :)

Naww, I'll pass...all we need is just one exceptional and popular artist to join and everyone's best efforts - including mine will be virtaully tossed in the trash :trash:. I'm focusing on smaller contests that I still have a good chance at :plotting:
