Image Umbrella: Realistic Images

Recommended Posts

nebulae can be difficult...well...they are difficult. I stopped trying when I started using a program called Apophosis. It's a fractal rendering program, but some fractals look pretty close to nebulae. ex: my current sig.

It still takes some work (going through loads of random batches...) and a LOT of time (waiting for the thing to render at a reasonable quality) but it makes cool creations like this one (with some editing involved)

PsychoHarmonic:I agree with AmadeusX absolutely stunning.

This is my first 100% PDN render. I guess it's not too bad for my first planet. I followed a PS tutorial, man was it a pain trying to come up with the same effects with PDN :/

This is my attempt to imitate this.

I think it wwas going good until I attempted the clouds on the moon, and the sea. The clouds were an attempt to mask the sharpness of the moon that I just couldn't get to go away. And the sea....well, it speaks for itself.

NICE, GREAT work here !

@TheGuitarist

You started out well. So what it looks nothing like the original, the point is too really make your OWN and

show your creativity. Let's see, the moon...well you got the basic things down, you just need to add a few more things,

like making it more sharp or something else...the background, well you have a symbolic background which represents the air,

try to make it seem 'whispier' and lighter, and cloud shaped :P

Ok after returning to PdN again for the 23423472346th time, my first spacescape I have made. It took just only 2 hours, and has many simple parts....I need to catch up on my spacescaping techniques :( soeone, teach me the ways of the space ways :cookie: !

@ TheGuitarist: Actually I tried making something pretty similar to that scene a while back LINK

What I did for the water basically was first just draw a lot of lines with different shades of gray over a black background using a small brush size. Then I used fragment blur which gave me the basic look that (with quite a bit more experimenting) can give a pretty decent ocean-look. In the image below i then blurred and scaled the "water" and added a simple little moon.

@ Skitzo: I like that planet, cool idea using different colors like that. :) For learning spaceart techniques I think I would search for some photoshop tutorials. There's really a lot of material out there and I'm sure a lot of the techniques are easily transferred to Paint.NET. I'm no expert on the subject though.

@ Aislin: I like both of them, especially the first one. It's a nice crop and the simple background fits the subject very good. In the other one I thought I would like to see a bit more of the persons face, but seeing the original image I realized the hands would come in the way. It looks good though, maybe just a bit dark, but good job anyway. :)

thanks for the comment olav :) I still removed a bit of the hand at her right eye, if you can see that, I drew a bit of her glasses and skin in that part... Although, I think the colors just 'fit' the images, if you know what I mean...

Ah, yes I can see what you mean. Good job covering it up, I didn't notice it before you wrote it.

A WIP I'm not sure I'll ever finish :roll: :

I made a Henry Stamp. What is a Henry Stamp, you ask? I have no idea :lol::lol: . It started off as a signature and just turned into a stamp.

i saw this and thought it was so awesome that i had to make one so heres my go at it:
