Celaeno by patrikarvidsson Celaeno by patrikarvidsson
Celaeno is a star in the constellation Taurus and a member of the Pleaides star cluster. Celaeno is sometimes called the Lost Pleiad.

Not the most fitting name for this if you consider the source, but beside that, I like the name and therefor I chose it. :)

I regret to inform you that once again I was actually just playing around, and therefor on low resolution, unfortunately I never expanded it so this is the full size image not even a bit resized, sadly. I think if I did work on bigger resolution than 800x800 then this would be a whole lot better.

Nonetheless, I hope you like it. I'm not going to test anymore, larger canvas sizes, here I come!

The painting process took me around 10 hours stretching way into the evening/night on christmas eve, but the day after I did lots of extra editing. It consists of ~80 layers. Original planet size is 8000x8000. (details not visible since it has been massively downsized.

It is drawn in Photoshop CS3 with a Wacom Graphire 4. Planets are made up from textures from virtualearth.nasa.gov.

Celaeno by =patrikarvidsson looks like a gate to an other dimension. Love to detail and a lot of depth make this piece really unique and extraordinary. Keep an eye on this artist for upcoming pictures! ( Featured by taenaron )
