Most 'space art' that I've seen rely on bright colors. I like how you explored the opposite in this palette... and it looks amazing!

well, i have a few custom brushes that i made specifically for painting clouds and smoke. other than that most of it is still just a question of how much time you would invest into detailing the clouds and so on.
thank you :)

Love the darkness and silence of it all. If that makes since. It's like something swallowed almost everything including the noise.

so the 1440x900 is ok?
Same ratio

bloknayrb Featured By Owner Feb 25, 2009  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yeah I know and yeah, it's fine, I already downloaded it. Does this version have the blurred bars though? I might photoshop those out for my desktop ;p
Reply
:iconchriscold:
ChrisCold Featured By Owner Feb 25, 2009
you want one with or without the frame?
the 1440x900 is without it cause widescreen was the original

There's a nice sharp, contrasting line up near the top...was that intentional? It looks almost like a gradient map overlay with nothing underneath it.

ChrisCold Featured By Owner Feb 25, 2009
You mean... the frame?
Reply
:iconeruantien-fett:
Eruantien-Fett Featured By Owner Feb 25, 2009
Guess I do, yea. Much more subtle on the bottom than on the top.
Reply
:iconchriscold:
ChrisCold Featured By Owner Feb 25, 2009
Well, yes, the frame was intentional.
It's not a gradient, just a blurred part of the pic.
