The flares pointing out at right angles are caused by the telescope and must all have the same angle.

Gotta hand it to you Killswitch........ You have a talent and the drive.
Why not put your ideas and work in the daily comps? I like what I see here, but only two entries?

I'm just saying and don't get me wrong here, but I'd like to see more of what you have and with a source we all can relate too.

Smile

thnx man i know i should work here too , but as i said before i am not motivated i rarely do that type of shop ou guys do here , like funny outrageous and you know not too surrealistic
but i cant work my minds of the many contests here , see when i saw the title of tamed horse i said good now i can do something cool i though of a real wild horse so i can transform it into and nightmare horse , you know the black horse with fire instead of hair but the source was a different thing Huh..

It could use some more transparancy.

I think you have gone a little over the top with the effect.
This tutorial was a great help with a few of my own images, hope it helps Smile

sometimes... Less is more

With space themes. I like to have an actual theme or a story...
Two that I've done outside of PSC

The hand and planet are obvious outside sources... the Nebula, was created entirely in photoshop.
Using regular brushes and a ton of smudging and blending using several layers set at different opacity


This one's one of my favorites. Here, the only outside source is the ship. The rest, including the planet was made in photoshop.

I've since done other space themes, but this was around 3-4 years ago when I was trying this stuff out. There are plenty of things I'd like to re-do in both... But for this thread, what I'm trying to show is sufficient.

If you have time, browse through my portfolio here, I've got a lot of space images. Most are done entirely in PS and are all sources.
one more I did for this place


Asteroid 3.141592653589
Here the planet and the asteroid were both built using the original source image, the rest is photoshop.


There are plenty of tutorials out there for doing Nebula's and Space images. I don't want to say yours is bad, but of the stuff you've showed us to date, this isn't that great. Looks like you used MS paint and didn't take any care to make anything other than blobs on a page using the track pad on your laptop. OR preset nebula brushes from DA and overlapped them using different colors. Find some of those tutorials and try out their suggestions. Some actually have you make your own brushes. Not a preset cookie cutter, this looks like the crab nebula ones... but actual brushes where you have to paint the nebula into shape. Using *gasp* your own imagination! I use some of those brushes to this day for other things like smoke and fog. Or when I'm in the mood to spend hours and hours on a space image.

One thing I LOVE about space images, is it allows you to use your imagination to build a story. Space is vast. Space can be dark and empty, BUT space can also be beautiful. The only limit, your imagination.


Cheers.

This one only got 8 votes. I used the space shuttle Challenger explosion for the umbilical cord:

I like the latest one a lot! (the one with the planet)
A much bigger improvement over your first two.

The only thing I'd fix is the colored stars. Should make most of those white. Some of the yellow ones are fine. even a few red would be OK. but the rest bring those to the front so that they're not under the colored layers
