The Horsehead Nebula by TylerCreatesWorlds The Horsehead Nebula by TylerCreatesWorlds
After many request I present to you... THE HORSEHEAD NEBULALAARARARLKAOII2.


Painted in Photoshop
I had a lot of fun working on this one. It turned out to be a little more difficult than I thought it would be. I wanted it to look as realistic as I could get it, so I did use a NASA photo for refrence.

As always, no textures, fractals, or photos (other than refrence.)

About 8 hours. What do you all think about it?

This isn't a photo...WOW!!!  It looks so real.

Well done, a truly interstellar (no pun intended) piece of art.  Keep it up.

I just noticed your comment about selling the right to share your images. I did not realize that, and will remove the image from my Facebook Timeline. My apologies. If I owe for this mistake -please contact me, and I'll take care of it immediately. Thank you.

You're fine. I don't mind people sharing my art on social media sites. I only ask that people pay for it when they want to use it for their own commercial uses. Feel free to share away, I can't be made about exposure for my works.

I sell the rights for my pictures to be used if you're interested. But you could easily find a free image of the horse head nebula off google.

That might be an actual picture of the horsehead nebula. It doesn't look like it was mine.

You're right, that's more likely the case. My mistake for not reading thoroughly, I wasn't aware that it was a painting of an actual nebula. Speaks a lot to your accuracy though. Love your work btw!

It looks comparable to photographs of the real nebula. How did you create the dark clouds of the Horsehead? Was it an addition of clouds, or did you delete the shape to create the dark patch? :confused:

I just drew the light around the shape, and left it dark.

Your artwork is so amazing. I'd love to know.. how? How do you make this sort of art, and to such a high detail, and realism (although i have never seen a real nebular up close and personal obviously). I'm really interested in it, and i'd love to give it a go myself
