Spiral Road by priteeboy Spiral Road by priteeboy
Well I'm almost a week late but here is what was supposed to be my new-year's space art, which I've done every year since I joined and I'll be damned if I let a minor delay break the chain :shakefist:

Didn't really have an idea this time around. But I figured I don't have any decent looking ones with a galaxy as the primary subject, having tried them on past pieces before but aborted them since I just wasn't getting results I was happy with. But I think I'm ready now and am quite proud of this one, even if just from a technical point of view :) Almost all digital painting this time. Some minor 3D/Fractal use that helped out a lot too.

As always, a magnificent piece making us of humanity really wonder how significant our existence is to begin with.

Hi Great Inspired One
I love this picture and was wanting to see if you could add a white cross coming out of the red into the earth, and then add a scripture on the bottom white. I need very high resolution as I would want to purchase the work, and upload it to an oversized canvas site. What would be the cost and lead time, if you can do this? I can send the scripture.

Hi! That's certainly a new use request for my work, and I'm glad you are willing to offer something for it :)

I'm usually skeptical of people buying my work to re-sell as there's a whole lot of legal drama that could potentially arise, as well as the chance of me losing sale potential on the original piece, so they do not come cheap as a result. Last person who wanted to use one of mine for his own selling purposes paid over $300 for the legal rights to do so. Even now I can't help but wonder if he still got the better end of the deal :hmm:

What I do offer as a way of avoiding this for the less-picky is commissioning a new piece that is similar for no extra cost, as it means keeping the original. Something like this (with your extra bits) could potentially be done within a week (so long as this flu doesn't get to me :cough:)

Rather unorthodox colours for a galaxy. But I like! :)

I came up with the colour scheme by accident, but I thought it looked cool :D I do like using unusual colours while trying to make them feel realistic :D I get tired of all the blue galaxies I've seen after a while :paranoid:

I've never seen a galaxy looks perfect like this ... you have don't putting detail on every single part dude! I was going to comment the same day you posted it but got a little busy!

Would you please make a WP of it... cuz the category is missing awesomness like that! Well, as long as you're cool with it :)

Thanks for the compliments. I gotta admit I gave up on wallpapers ages ago. My generosity was only rewarded with credit-less res-posting of them everywhere. I do give out wallpapers by special request though if someone wants one that bad, but only up to a certain size :p

I actually have no idea what a forming galaxy would look like :O None of the documentaries or books I've seen about astronomy has gone into that, and I'm only now realizing :lol:

I did assume no new galaxies were forming anywhere, we'd probably have the same ones growing, changing and merging until the end of the universe. Better appreciate e'm while they're here ;p

I did use some fractals and some twirl filter to give me a base to start with :shh: The digital painting part was to add much more detail and depth over it though which there really isn't much a shortcut for. Just gotta know how to paint ^^;
