How to make a Galaxy in photoshop.
« on: September 16, 2009, 05:24:49 PM »
Can someone help me make a spiral galaxy in photoshop?
I say tutorials, but most is just stars and clouds, and that's not a galaxy.
I seen a good one, but it's not my kind of style for a spiral galaxy.

I want something like this (Go to 1:33):


I would like to make others too, like barred spiral ,irregular, eliptical and lenticular.

It's actually good.
I do galaxies that way too, but I want to put alot of detail into it, like stars, dust links and sometimes a bar through the centar or more than 4 arms.

Try "spraying" stars with gas!

Not only quasars shoot jets, but some galaxies can do it too.

3C 321 is a system of two galaxies rotating around each other. They are notable for showing the first observed galaxy smiting another galaxy with a blast of energy, which is theorized to be from a supermassive black hole at the center of the galaxy smiting the galaxy being smote.

Quasars are superbright young galaxies.
