Orbital Patrol by gucken Orbital Patrol by gucken
finished!

thanks :icontaenaron: for the title!


I downloaded about 40 cloud stocks from sxc.hu for cloud study.. the nebula is the result oO
wanted to add a handwritten copyright, but after I was finished, the tablet software crashed -.-

I was able to reduce the size to 1,4 gb ..phew :D
original dimensions: 6400px x 4800px (but without the stars.. I had to add them after resizing =( )

so basically everything is done by me, even the space shuttles. but i still suck at drawing objects

I hope I do not disappoint some of you because of the high expectations provided by my last piece and all the screenshots


updates may come in the next days.. I'm in a hurry somehow to finally submit this thing, because I have no spare time in the next days


check out the wallpaper in 3 different sizes:
1600x1200
1280x1024
1024x768

or press the download button for 1600x1200



comments and any kind of support is really appreciated =)



and, yes, my older work "Polaris" inspired me ;)




programmes used: Adobe Photoshop Cs2

time taken: way too long.. over 15 hours over one week

tablet: wacom intuos 3 a5



update #1

thank you :iconakajork:

I fixed the stars near the moon..


further updates may come soon


But right now I am working on a new project ;)
(something smaller) =)

That really is impressive. Tricky to come with a fresh composition for something like space-scapes, but you did it amazingly.

why you add stars after resizing?
Reply
:icongucken:
gucken Featured By Owner Apr 25, 2007  Hobbyist Digital Artist
because they are 1px big, so they are disorted after resizing
