I reckon a little early is better than a lot late ...

This is my third dsg entry. Its about 20 mins work. Hope you like it. I will try and post an improved version later in the day.
I like you're work Renren. Great sense of size and graceful power. Nice
This turned out to be alot of fun. I'll probably do another during lunch (this one has been during some rendering downtime at work) I remember taking an Astronomy class in college and being totally blown away when I found out those black spots in nebulas were actually unilluminated clouds of dust just blocking the light. Attempting to even vaugely conceptualize the size of something like that makes my brain twiggle...in a good way of course. Can't go wrong with a star nursery!
Anyway, photoshop...probably about 40 minutes
...update! Sorry if this is not proper protocol for posting an updated DSG entry
the old one can still be seen here

"Starchild" -1.5 hrs PS8, looked at some nebula pics on google. This is a sweet subject, but it reminds me that sometimes reality can be as beautiful and strange as any science fiction.
another movie/book homage... It starts off like this, "I've seen things you people wouldn't believe..."
With a dramatic increase in wave emission from M216 "Face Nebula" an automated multi-band probe has been sent to record as much information as possible.
Painter, looked at some ref, I think the filters and glow sorta killed it
Oh, and the stars (which were minor to begin with) disappeared with the resize

I see a baby! Good job, bro. Nice use of nubeulus colors to give it both an attractive and "mystic" (of course mystic, it's space) quality. As you can see- no avatar... might need your help with that.~ ChrisOriginally Posted by NKunleashed
Seventy-two is good. Or so I've been told.
It took me until the time when I wanted to sign the thing to realize I've been working with the mouse.
Heh. Oh well.
Greg Martin's tutorials are awesome, by the way.
finally i got up the nerve to post a pic of mine ( first post! )
glad to join you guys!
RenRen - I love the colors, very vibrant.
Cthogua - Excellent color choices, nice feeling to it.
NKunleashed - Very magistic and bold, love the child.

this is exactly why i wanted to join in the DSG - I never would have picked something like this to draw off my own back. I also feel that I learned something by doing it, which is great for me!
almost turned into a monster or creature, it kept trying to - but I think i kept it abstract enough to pass as some sort of deity in the depths of space...
Thanks for the Greg Martin link, Yaso. Suddently I feel the need to try this one again...
Heh, Woznkt, I think you meant to post that in the idiot wizard thread?
Either that, or that is one fancy nebula =)
damn, I only discover now how painfull it is to discover my drawings at night, after having done the job with the sun shining on my screen....
Nice job to everyone
N-Mel: I like your blue nebula. Has a very mystical look to it. You might be able to darken it a little bit more in places to give it that authentic look. Nice job overall though.
ThinMint: Wow! This is my favorite one. Looks just amazing.
Yaso Kuuhl: I love the dark gases you have in front of the lighter starlight background.
Cthogua: You should really tighten yours up and finish it as the lighting is really good and it would make a great piece.
There's some kick-ass art in here today. Good topic. Where are the extreme concepts though? Here's yet another take (nothing special concept-wise here either). The nebula isn't really the focus of this one, but there's a nebula in it!

I know I haven't posted in awhile but I've been resting since I got back from Iraq. I'm glad to see some new work as well as some people returning. William b. Hand, nice to see you're out of your slump and going strong.
Nightfiend: Thanks! Coincidentally, I like yours the best! I couldn't bring myself to do a red, but I think you handled it perfectly.
I also learned that I need to not be so literal... maybe not have a nebula as the focus the next time...now that I know how to draw one!
Absolutely great, everyone.
BluePanda: I love yours, but the extreme yellow/black part on the left side makes it so heavy on the left. You would have been better even if you changed the color to more go with the palette of the piece
i should be texturing right now.
