Something new from me. Another Iniquity inspired nebula. It is done for a game project called "Empire: Peripheral Wars". The project version differs from this one but it is because of the requirments I had. Hope you guys like it I may add a wallpaper pack soon
Especially for ~synax444 this one took some hours of hard work
My artwork is not stock and it is not to be re-uploaded, edited, or used anywhere in any way without my permission.
I didn't describe it right, how do you make the blending so smooth do you Gaussian blur the adjustment layer mask etc. Most of the nebula's I've made the colors work together but the transition between cyan and lime green isn't very smooth.
Well as a most basic idea I can give you this: Brush the base colors on one layer with soft round brush with lowered opacity (depends on color but usually around 50%). Then duplicate the layer. I usually blur the original layer twice with max gaussian (250) but it depends from the colors and the resolution. Then I set the duplicated layer on color dodge with lowered opacity (lower till it feels good). And when I finish with the structure of the nebula I usually make a couple of color adjustment layers to enhance some colors and blend them better. Hope this helps somehow.
I'm always feeling a little bit unsatiated when such a great piece of art, which so many delicious details, has such a high compression ratio that the details loose much of what makes them so awesomely and deliciously lush.
I can always upload 4k wide picture but it will be around 30MB at least and it will be a problem especially for people with slower internet connection. I have found a way to save as much details as I can while lowering the resolution
Hehe, people who are photographers don't care about sizes even if they're on mobile connections that don't allow speeds faster than 300 kbit/s (speaking of myself ) Anyway, I think it's so great that it deserves to be seen without compression. Maybe not the whole 30mb file, but still sth less compressed. I'm not saying it's so bad that ALL the details get lost, but my LCD is so damn sharp that sometimes it can be a pain it the ass
