Space art has evolved from a strictly canvas format and now includes digitally produced works using software such as Photoshop. Since I am much more comfortable with Photoshop than a brush I recently (April of 2016) decided to give it a try. While browsing through the internet looking for tutorials I came across a website in the UK that had everything I needed to get started. Digital Heavens was started by Stewart Wood and is a wonderful source of products, tutorials and other information for space artists and photographers. Many of the images below have been created using their Cosmic Pack 3 software package. I have also used other online resources to produce some of the lens flares.
I am having a lot of fun creating these images and hope you enjoy them.
