Auf dem Nebelmeer by ErikShoemaker Auf dem Nebelmeer by ErikShoemaker
This is a fairly quick nebula doodle I'm actually quite happy with because I like how depth and colors turned out here. I'm really feeling like being almost inside the nebula when I look at the picture. :D
I must thank =GlennClovis for his amazing brush set, they were very helpful for the detailing.

I hope you like it! :)

Really impressive work, have checked your entire gallery. What kind of brush set do you use? I read that you used GlenClovis's brush set for the detailing.
Personally I can't seem to make my drawings look like this, probably because I'm just using the basic chalk and airbrush.

for this I used all kinds of brushes, but to be honest I'm not the best painter. I mostly use photos, and custom brushes are very useful for quick and detailed drawings. I can recommend this brushset: [link]

Ah! I appreciate your kindness sir!
I've always used the basic brushes, mostly chalk and airbrush, both are used for shaping, coloring etc.
I will definitely be trying these brushes out!

hehe tell me about it.
Since I've started working on my master thesis I haven't had time or motivation to create any new art pieces at all- but it's fun and I'm slowly making progress, although it's frustrating at times.
And how do you like your artschool? You're doing a lot of painting now, right?

Mine is completely wacky though compared- I always try to do something a bit different than the tech look... Its a Zapotec warrior helmet, mozaic tile coloring with patterns, african impala horns, and fangs

I'm glad you're having fun then!!! Master thesis sounds incredibly hard just by the title haha.
Artschool is great right now... I live with two other artists in my school, its warm here in winter, literally couldn't be going better...
Yea we are leaning painting, but also drawing, how to have perfect perspective without using grids... takes a while, but im getting there. You basically practice tons of exercises on plotting perspective out, really technically. after doing it for so long, you eventual can recognize without having to do construction.
Overall its been a blast but some classes have been a bore... nothing has been useless, which I am really glad for. Right now we're building lifesize helmets- here are some results from previous terms:

other than that we explore more fundamentals this term, next term is when the real fun starts though...
Whatcha lookin forward to this year?

haha wow these helmets look amazing. It's really cool what comes out of this. The models you build at school are badass lol (you already posted some photos earlier as I recall).
I'd love to get some painting/drawing/perspective and maybe also design background, but I don't really have time for these things anymore unfortunately. :(

My master thesis is basically a science project I'm working on for about a year which is real scientific research which (hopefully) hasn't been done before and which is probably published in some sort of paper or science magazine after that. It can be boring though and I have to figure out most of the stuff on my own which is often giving me a hard time. But it's really cool to work on something that might actually matter to someone.

hehe I'll doubt you find it interesting lol. It's purely theoretical work and what I basically do is constructing a model which correctly describes movement of Neutrinos (ultra light particles, maybe you've heard of them before) in our universe as well as "transformations" or decay of Neutrinos into other kinds of matter.

for instance close to a super nova explosion which is origin to many types of nebulae in outer space there may very well be huge amounts of energy causing this light distribution. Or simply gas clouds illuminated by suns/stars close by. It all depends on the method of measurement used to detect the gas clouds (for example radar or x-ray spectroscopy deliver much different results of the same object). :) But I'm not saying this is a totally realistic scenario you see here. I guess the trail of the space ship is actually way too big and shouldn't even exist either.

ah Glenn's brushes are really awesome!! Love your vivid colors here!! I always turn towards desaturation rather than vivid and saturated colors. I should do one like this too.
Reply
:iconerikshoemaker:
ErikShoemaker Featured By Owner Dec 3, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
the saturation in your images is just fine Seb. :P You just tend to use other color schemes than I do. I always end up tweaking my color schemes until they include blue and purple lol no matter what my initial intention was. You on the other hand seem to love green+orange hehe. Doesn't really matter, most importantly it's not monotone and boring. ;)

Shue13 Featured By Owner Dec 3, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
ah ah you're right, I really like the green+orange indeed!! My next one would be rather blue purple pink one, ah ah!! Now I'm forcing myself to define colors before painting and thus paint with the actual color scheme and not tweaking the whole thing with adjustment filters... but sometimes it's stronger than me ah ah!!
