CosmosCosmos, acrylic on illustration board scan and digitally altered, approx. 210 x 210 mm.

Another experiment, this time with digital art. The challenge this month over at Creative Every Day is ‘cosmos’ and I couldn’t leave a word like that alone. This is the result. I’m not 100% happy with it and I may make another attempt at a later date.

To create it, I first painted a background with the bubble technique I’ve been exploring recently.

Background for Cosmos painting

I then scanned it in, fiddled with the contrast, cropped it and started filling it with stars. It is basically a follow on from where ‘Dream‘ left off.

I’ve written up most of the method of how to create these kinds of backgrounds and will be posting it as soon as I can put it together with pictures.
