First time on trying true gas nebulae so far, I'm liking the results so here I post them, if you want to give me any advise it will be much appreciated.

With time and patience it will burn even brighter than it already does now. I have always been crap at nebula's you on the other hand have a natural gift for them in fact I have never seen a picture from you I have disliked they all have something special about them.

Good Work

Karl

What i notice most when i look at a globule of interstellar gas is the contrast where some parts have a fuzzy glow to them, a haze, and other parts are very trim and thick, without the haze.

Here is a little something I put together to explain what i mean.

yes, like if behind those clouds there were more stars glowing, that was in my mind too, I'll put it later on thanks.

more than natural gift for nebula I would say natural gift for photoshop, most of it is smudge and some rough strokes, in fact I'm horrible at painting but with photoshop you can create a lot of things from nowhere.

about all my pics having something special, that's because I'm not use to making 20 little paintings ending up only three or four of them, each time I start a new piece it's purpose is to become a final piece with the same quality as the previous one...with the time it takes...so it damn right may be special

also, I don't usually make more than one or two pictures of the same subject, but I do remake a lot of my pieces when it's been a while.

thanks very much for your comment.

I use an image of ink in water for the base shape of the nebula, and later a lot of blur, maybe that helps.

Any ideas on how to create more detail on the nebula, without painting on hand?

blurring is easy, making detail not so much.

custom brush sets

Parts of real space pictures made into brushes, these always prove very useful for making organic looking edges for me.

You'd have an easy time finding some on dA
