heh limited resources and you still do way better than I ever could with every resource in the world X3

But either way great stuff, being meaning to ask this too,
How do you make stars?
Stock?
You draw each star 1 by 1?

I draw mine 1 by 1 and when I see work like yours I question is it me doing it wrong?
Or am I just darn right impatient? :P

i usually have a base layer of stars made from noise, very simple and modest, then go in and paint the brighter stars 1 by 1
and thanks :D

make a black layer, add some monochromatic noise, and use level adjustment to whiten some of them, then overlay pictures of clouds and add some blur, along with cloning.
then add some feature stars.

uhhh btw when I use level adjustment and adjust it so it looks perfect in the preview, when i come to click "OK" it produces something completely differently :/
Have any idea whats wrong?

really? levels shouldnt do that, it isnt a random thing.
are you applying it to straight noise?
regardless, it doesnt really matter, because you arent meant to get the appearance of the stars from there. from there you need to apply areas of light and dark by using dodge and burn on a huge soft brush, as well as cloning and rotating and resizing.

also, to get a more interesting starfield over the top of that, get a few small but feature size stars on a layer, and then duplicate it. rotate, resize, whatever it, and then merge down. rinse and repeat about 10-30 times and you have yourself a feature starscape over your noise starscape. then you just add a cloud layer on overlay and its all nice and pretty, ready for some planets.

eh, looks like something I'd find in the trash somewhere...hehe :)

pretty wicked stuff, even though you didn't spend a lot of time on this one, I like it a lot... my preference on your pieces is the ones that don't have any people or anything like that: just space and celestial bodies.

The simple things in this help, such as the small moon (I'm assuming) on the right. If that wasn't there then the piece wouldn't quite have the same sense of "balance" it has at the moment. Also, having the heavy lighting on the right side puts emphasis on the fact that the moon is there without it being overwhelmed by the planet

good stuff!
