I'm actually going to try and come up with something for this as space is one of my favorite subjects, still deciding on whether or not to use MS-Paint for this one or not :D

Here is my entry!

Image

I created this image solely in Photoshop with lots of filters! I made it last year so I'm trying to remember the actual steps involved!

Basically using the gradient tool, I picked 2 tones of blue for the background. Then I added some small stars which you can also use already made stars from one of the filters I believe as well. I then made a circle and stretched it out and then added a yellow/white colour to it and then used the burn tool to make those holes in it. The rest was done with a smudge tool. I can't remember what else I did sorry guys lol! I know I used the highlight tool to add some brightness to both the comet and the left area where the comet came from.

I would call flavah's a comet. Very nice too. And SB, don't put yourself down on PS. I've seen you make many improvements and yours is a nice entry too.

As an aside, it would be cool if everyone added a blurb about how you made your image and what program/s you used. It's cool to have the competition entries, but it would probably help people to learn more if they knew a little more about how you did it. It's not required for the competition of course, but that's why I always add a bit of an explanation. Unlike a photography competitions where you're taking a picture, the digital compositions, require a bit of extra knowhow (granted it takes knowledge of photography to take a good picture too - didn't want to offend any photographers *lol ).

Forgot the "How I did it"

Well for starters it was in photoshop. To make the stars I used Noise at around 10%, Gaussian and Monochromatic. I then used brightness and contrast to get rid of the really light stars and increase the ones that are left over (-30,75). After that I duped the layer to make bigger stars. To do this I used brightness and contrast (100,0) from there its the clone tool and my brain.

The big lights are lens flare.

hey everybody, I'm new here and I thought why don't I give this contest a go.
so here is my digital drawing:

Image

The drawing was done in photoshop CS2.
- the planets: 4 cirkels, 1 with texture (in my case rocks and wood), 1 color as overlay, 1 black circle with layer styles(glow and stuff) and a last black circle with a blur for the shadow.
- the planet express and pizza planet logo are quick vectors of existing logos, not my best work :)
- the black hole: a twist of some vertical lines with some effects (not the effect that i hoped for)
- the stars: white points
- the background: render>clouds
that's all there is to it :)

What I like about that xfahmix is that if you look at it just the right way, there's a slight illusion of movement.
