I've seen many space-scapes that have amazed me, this one is no different. The planets look incredible and I love the overal feel of it. That blue plasma-ish stuff looks especially cool. Awesome work

the middle nebula looks awesome but that right part with his fractal looks for me not good :(. The glow on the planets is not bad but the Light source is hard! Make more glow! :)

Thanks for your comment! You are right, the light source is hard. I did a small edit on the glow for the smaller planet, it has more glow now. Tell me if you think it's better, thanks.

How did you make it look so smooth?
Reply
:icondarink:
DarinK Featured By Owner Mar 3, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Thanks AdrienCGD! I rendered the nebula on high quality settings and adjusted the levels. When I look at the fullscreen preview in Apophysis, if it looks smooth on the preview, then it's going to look really smooth when rendered at high quality.

:iconadriencgd:
AdrienCGD Featured By Owner Mar 3, 2010
Thanks for the explanation.
But how do you use cloud textures and make them so smooth, even in high quality, they'll usually look like cotton, never smooth like what you did.
Or do you use the smudge/liquify tool?
Hehe btw you can call me Adrien, that's my real name ^.^

DarinK Featured By Owner Mar 3, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I didn't do anything special with the cloud textures. They are high resolution NASA satellite photos. The one I used is like 6000X6000. I didn't use spherize, I made it into a 3D shape layer in Photoshop. After I scaled down and added the atmospheric glow and shadowing it looked pretty good.

Oh I see what you mean, you're talking about the planet, I was talking about the nebula that you made (in light blue) lol

DarinK Featured By Owner Mar 4, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Lol, sorry about the confusion with my reply. When I first replied I thought you were talking about the nebula clouds, but I wasn't sure when I replied the second time. As far as the nebula clouds they looked really smooth in Apophysis. The only thing I did post process was set the blend mode to screen, then duplicate the layer and put that one on overlay. Then I increased the shadows using levels.

AdrienCGD Featured By Owner Mar 4, 2010
Oh so it was apophysis...
I used that program before, but it never comes out smooth...
Like it gets crowded or pixelated...
How do you make it real smooth?
There's probably some blurring using photoshop, right?
Reply
:icondarink:
DarinK Featured By Owner Mar 4, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
No, I didn't blur it in photoshop. Apophysis can do the blurring using the "filter radius" setting. I usually have the render settings at:

Quality: 20000
Filter radius: 0.5
Oversample: 2

I usually make the size bigger than 2560X1600. Renders will take between 2 hours to 12 hours. If I zoomed in a lot while creating the flame, the render time increases significantly. I have 8GB DDR2 RAM and a Quad Core. I have flam3, but have never used it, I am going to try that and see how the render comes out. After I get a decent flame, I refine it using the Editor and manipulating the triangles until I get something smooth.

Thanks! I spent about 4 hours in photoshop on this. I did have an Apophysis render for the nebula that I had made previous, it took me about an hour to come up with that not counting the render time.
