So much space. Is it a corridor or a space subway/metro/underground?:D How did you achieve the perspective?

Wow! That is a fantastic pic Rickhum.  Looks like a gateway to other worlds.  <3

Where did you go?  Not many peeps coming home...   :P    (I see the T.A.R.D.I.S.!)

Thanks ppl,

The ride home can be a tad lonesome Pix' as not many are going where I'm going.

Yeah that's a nod to "The Doctor" Red Ochre.

It's a ship of some sort Eli, I Think it's called 1 point perspective, I'm not big on technique but it seems a necessary evil.

 

It's an analogy and a bit of a joke about my feelings (and probably others) of coming from another planet (reality) Lynxster.  

Note the planet & tardis as left and right brain or the polarity between instinct and intellect and the other passenger maybe alter ego.

We all go home alone in the end and we often need to stand alone on our journey. 

 

I need to do more work on the window as the perspective is not quite right.

Thanks again folks & pardon my rant but I'm a philosopher trapped in the body of an ageing hippy :-)

Wow RickHum! This is a seriously great image! I thought your eagle was good but this tells a very meaningful story. Your perspective is great and I don't think you need to work on the windows.

 Maybe it's taking you to a better place.

This may Show how I got the perspective Eli.

I made a pattern and copied the layers on top of each whilst reducing each layer x 10%

Then added the lights etc' etc. I work intuitively. There was no plan,just a feeling.

 

Thank you Seerose and Maxi. I've looked for but cant find your gallery Max.

The big moon is made with "Lens and the smaller blue planet was made with "Shape 3d"

The sun thingy was adapted from an exploding planet tut.My first attempt @ a cosmic composition.

Totes Lynxster, I felt like I was "pushing it" but gave it a go.

I'm already deconstructing this cause there may be another one in me. 

Cheers for your interest Lynx, Cool moniker btw  :-)

I wasn't happy with the previous post so I redid it.

Still not happy so I'm gonna do some research & have another go.

Thanks to Pdnnoob for the moon tut.

Have you seen the Planetoid plugin? (there's a link in my signature)

With a little work you can make very passable moons....

^ This was created from two moons + additive mode on the upper layer. Both made from the same settings (+ Reseed) on each active layer in Planetoid.

Yes I've tried the planetoid plugin and it does a good job but I'm after something else.

I'm presently ensconced in relevant tuts that I've since found..

Thanks for the info and interest Ego.

I decided I was bloody potato @ making celestials so I did a few tuts & had another go.

I've kept my original blue planet (which is made from a photo I took of Lapis lazuli). 

I reinvented my sun and moon. Tacked it together and whacked in a bit of dust and Bob'your uncle.

Sorry for lapsing into a bit of Strine there but  you new Australians should get the drift.

Great new images RickHum! It seems like you like doing spacescapes. Pixie is right, you just keep getting better and better.

Cheers Woodsy and Pixey. Yeah I'm stuck on space scapes.

It will take a few more days to perfect my ellements after working thru all the tuts 

but I'll be doing more space themes.

I also have a thing for spacescapes. The last piece seems the most accomplished to me so far, so keep it going! alien2.gif
