Exploding planets

Recommended Posts

Hey dudes this Exploding Planets style is AWESOME!!!! I am totally new to Paint.NET and am now trying to learn things here. I tried it out and it worked all right. I made a blue exploding planet just like the one shown in the example. But when I saved it and reopened it, I saw that the image was totally white. Can any of you tell me why this happened and how can I correct this?

This/these is/are my attempt/s... though I didn't use mud, I used a scrunched up paper ball :)



Seeing as I used a scrunched up ball of paper, I guess I should REALLY try it with mud, I will probably find some dried mud/sand somewhere, the beach has good dried up sand, and the garden probably has some good mud lol.

Good tutorial, keep up the good work. ;)

Thanx for the n1 Tutorial

I played a bit around with the values, especialy i doidn't put the Hue/saturation to 0 i keep it at about 20% of the bar or something.

The Result was this:


It was about my 5. Try. Im using it now as my MSN Userpic :D

The first 2 are compleately bloody potato, because i missunderstood something when i translate it to german, after this i switch the paint.net language.

Actualy im looking for a way to increase the size of the picture, what is a good rendering method to increase it? At least im looking for a big picture of dry mud ( something arround 1280x1024 or larger).

Idea for further trys: If you do a Yellow "supernova" first, and then make another picture and adjust the Glow center point, if you combine them, it will look like the "sun" or "Nova" is increasing size(e.g. Red Giant) and "burning" away the planet.

Very good work! Looks quite nice, my fellow Hoosier! ;-)

Thanks, although I don't know if I could repeat it. :) Lots of tweaking, undoing and redoing and experimenting with layer blending modes. This one was definitely a good learning experience.

Did u use the mandelbrot set devise?
