EDIT - Removed the old ship, customized the color and contrast, and removed zee text.
EDIT 2014 - Enhanced the original file for a clearer image. Blurred the stars so they're not soooo clustered.
A sequal to New Horizons and i m o much better. Redesigned the ship and decided not to do a motion blur this time. I know the ship isn't that detailed and it's somewhat cartoonish - I still need practice with ship creation and such so... Planet and moon were made using some rock textures I took with my minolta dimage z1. Nebula was brushed and smudged as usual. I couldn't get that much depth into it as I would have liked, but it's still well executed and not too flashy.
I did about a million color versions and decided this was best. I may release a few other colour versions for my website (when it finally gets completed).
anyhoo this is was done in about 6 hours in Photoshop. The first stages were hell, I almost thought I had lost my touch. But thank goodness things finally came together in the last.
