Delirium by cosmicbound Delirium by cosmicbound
Confused, drifting in your own world; you are in a state of delirium, flying through space, flying through memory, flying through life. Every colour you have seen, mixing inside your eyes like an artist with an assortment of paint. A whole entire world beckons before your very eyes, only to momentarily change to the next, unable to do nothing, you are left in your psychotic delirium; It is all you have now, the world is in your head & nowhere else.


I quite enjoyed creating this piece, & its great to unveil it at last. For me I have conveyed a sense of depth I was after, more specifically the colourations - the whisps of blue/purple in front of heated colours to bring out depth, also if you notice my attempt to brush gases around the planet to further bring this sense of depth into the piece. I'm hoping others may enjoy it too.

As I do, I've included a wallpaper package; it includes resolutions for 1024×768, 1600×1200, & 1900×1200. Have fun with them! As with just about all my images, I made the picture at a resolution of 3000x4500, at 300 dpi. Photoshop CS1.

Any feedback is always appreciated.

very pretty. do you have any tips on how to create realistic dense gas lighting like you have on the bottom right area?

Use blurring filters and multiple layer blends.

Beautiful work. Many people attempt to create less realistic space scenes (intentionally) and fail miserably in every way, but you seem to have hit the nail on the head. This is beautiful, even haunting. The depth in the image works wonderfully and the lighting is excellent.

Hey Kyle!
wow, I really like this one- it's pretty amazing how the back-ground looks like it could be so many different things- awsome work!

You've really become one of my inspirations as of late. Watching you progress is wonderful. I can only hope (once I get back into art again) to get that kind of artistic level of greatness.

I'm exceedingly impressed and proud of you. I've taken a break from the art scene so I feel I've lost something, hopefully I can regain it back and hopefully impress you as you have impressed me.

The depth and color is unbelievable; it's pure eye candy. I only wish I could see the detail or more detail on the planet, but that is something very minor. You've just moved up to a new level of greatness. Astonishing work!

Oh yeah... looks like you used the same texture for your planet/moon as your nebula... seems a little wierd.
