Galaxy 02 by AdamBurn Galaxy 02 by AdamBurn
This is a galaxy map I have been working on over the past few days as part of a commission for a browser based MMO game being developed, other artists are working on other parts of the game such as :iconairage: who is doing the illustrations for ships and buildings, small images but very high quality, i was luck enough to see some.
Also a fellow space artist :iconr3v4n: who is making the planets.

This map will eventually have a grid over it and you will be able to zoom into an area and see all the tiny stars, zoom in again and it will bring up a separate image of the local star clusters, I have to make them as well.

Anyway, this went through several stages of development, lots of images being exchanged with scribbles on them showing areas that needed changing, was fun.

Enjoy

I know this is painted but can you believe that the bright white milky center is actually a black hole? :D

I painted it, mostly using textures and custom brushes

Amazing! I spend quite a while on NASA's astronomy pic of the day and I could barely tell the difference between your painting and their pictures. Good job!

Also, is this for Novus Aeterno?
