Speedy: a galaxy by Sirielle Speedy: a galaxy by Sirielle

A quick background image for DVD menu to one old home movie. Since the movie begins with a galaxy as background I thought I make one for the start image. In the middle I've checked space shots online and have found the beautiful Andromeda (so had to search for one old song about it, too). But it's not Andromeda, not accurate enough nor supposed to be. Just a galaxy. [Painter IX.]

But what is a category for such image?

Jak napisałem na CGtalk - mogła być mniej rozmazana, ale po namyśle - to obraz a nie zdjęcie :)
Rysuj więcej takich rzeczy :D

I was looking at Andromeda photo. But a friend told me - in comments here - that these photos do not show up a real view. They are taken on long time and in a few light frequencies/visions or how to say it - infra-red etc., so all is visible. From a star ship we would not see such view, only something similar to our Milky Way visible in unclouded night sky :)

Lovely work. Wish I was as good as backdrops like this.

Try, that was easy! Done mostly with a mouse, no need for tablet with it. Start with dark background and add the blurred places as references show, then add sharper light points of closer objects, use blur on a layer if you need and repeat it till you get what you want. Or more or less this way. Pepper spry brush was handy in Painter to add all the tiny dots, I blurred these and added again, used a lot of screen mode setting on layers. I did mine in a bit chaotic way, but that's what it should be done - from dark and blurry to sharp and light areas.

Oh, dear! that is fantastic!
I think you can place it in any category that you want, since DA is a little too rigid about that and you have not enough options.

Yes, there are no space categories - there is one but I am not sure what it is and there is no description. Maybe in sky or SF would be better.

Yeah, but clouds are hardly visible here ;) Night sky.... Hmmm.
Not that much, easily can be done in PC with just a mouse since I mostly clicked this time to paint all the light dots ;) The smallest dots were easy for I used pepper spry brush in painter, the rest is combination of small airbrush dots with sharp dots definition in various colours and a few layers, some set to screen mode. Could be done on paper, too, only then it would have to have a good plan from the start, not messing here and there as I did with layers help. And the best done on dark canvas going step by step from darkest blurriest shapes into the sharpest lights. PC makes life easier though :) I could have make better use of delth of field here and add less stars to have more dark background here and there but still I'm happy with it. About 1,5 - 2 hours of work, including net browsing, coffee etc.

Patrzyłam na zdjęcie Andromedy, tak piękna że aż nierealna. Ja chcę taki widoczek z okna! Cudo :love: No, ale nie starałam się jej skopiować, nie to było celem, choć korci mnie, by to zrobić, najlepiej w tyle jakiejś historii na pierwszym planie.

Nie no, tak mi się tylko skojarzyło ;-) co do takiego widoczku - to niestety niemożliwe :-/ tylko na zdjęciach da się uzyskać takie obrazy.

Tzn. myślisz, że z pokładu statku kosmicznego Noldo 3001 nie byłoby tego widać? ;)

Nie. To po prostu zbyt rozproszone obiekty... te wszystkie zdjęcia powstają dzięki długim naświetlaniom i dziwnym modyfikacjom ( zdjęcia w różnym widmie światła ). Byśmy widzieli coś w stylu drogi mlecznej ale troszkę jaśniejsze...

Ah, nie zauważyłam ostatniego zdania - OK,muszę zerknąć na drogę mleczną, bo nie pamiętam jak wygląda gołym okiem.

OK,a co w takim razie byłoby widoczne? Tylko najjaśniejsze obiekty i czerń? Na Polconie 2007 był fajny wykład z prezentacją animacji nt tego, co byłoby widać z okien statku kosmicznego lecącego z prędkością światła. Niesamowite - przestrzeń się zakrzywia, kolory zmieniają... Jednym słowem kosmos ;)

Naprawdę warto było. Byłam potem na Pyrkonie, ale nie ma porównania. Wkrótce Polcon 2008,tym razem w Zielonej Górze, jak się da to jadę. Niestety na Tolk Folk nie dotarłam, z aktywności na dA wnioskuję, że Ty też nie.
