Stargate SG-1-Style Hyperspace


Recommended Posts

First tut, so I apologize if I do something wrong.

We'll be creating a Stargate SG-1-ish Hyperspace funnel thing, that looks like this:

First, open a new canvas, whatever size you want, really. I use the same size as my monitor's resolution, 1280x800.

Next, render some clouds on their default settings.

After you have your clouds, pencil sketch them. (Effects-Artistic-Pencil Sketch) Set tip size and range both to 20.

Next, run Zoom Blur. (Effects-Blurs-Zoom Blur) Don't use Zoom Blur Deluxe; It doesn't leave the picture as... patchy as the stock one.

Now colorize it however you wish. I use a combination of Curves and Hue/Saturation. In Stargate, the colors of Hyperspace vary from season to season; purple, blue, green... I like purple the best.

Once you have your desired colors, create a new layer, and hide the first one. Move the new one to the bottom, and paint it black. Next, add some stars with Effects-Noise-Add Noise. I use the settings of Intensity-100, Color Saturation-0, Coverage-3.11.

Next we'll run Zoom Blur again, but at a much lower setting of 3.

Now unhide the hyperspace layer and set the blendmode to Glow, and you're done.

Nice, both of you. lol, Hexratt, reminds me of one of mine :P


I tried to make it look like the light from hyperspace was sorta reflecting off'a the hull, and also tried to put a reflection of hyperspace in the cockpit viewport. Had some trouble with that part. But meh, I was just messin' around, having some fun :P
