Running Free by patrikarvidsson Running Free by patrikarvidsson
This project started out as a test, but eventually it became more and in my opinion turned out quite nice.

As I wrote in my journal I was reading a tutorial written by =ladyrapid about painting spacescenes yourself; this is my first attempt. It's not perfect, it has its flaws and I guess I could add more detail. I felt I wanted to leave it as it is now even though you really can't add enough detail.

At first I wasn't planning on releasing this at all, but as stated before, I changed my mind due to the end result.

Process
I worked on this piece for a few hours almost every day for about a week. The original size is 3000x2273 and is built up by over 150 layers (not counting adjustment layers).

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

The download-link is leading to a .zip file which contains wallpaper versions for this deviation, if any of you end up wanting it.

I love the detail you put into this, as well as the colors. It really grabs the attention. Great space scene. It's very nicely done. ^_^

It is nicely done. I can feel the ladyrapid's tutorial but this image has it's own perfection and style. It is good that it's not one of those "copy-paste style" pictures. Really awesome :)

Wow patrik. i love it!

the colors are lovely and i really like the flow of the nebuleas. there is no empty space and the overall look is very good. and the planets are a small but very important extra! man i love it :) *my current desktop now*
