Re: Cute Baby on Morguefile

Anything's possible Craig, but I wanted it to look like a realistic starscape. Did more then a few today (binge) with some good/some OK/some not so good. Just experimenting for now.

Edit: I posted this one on Fred Miranda's site and thought the results were fantastic. I can't link the site now since I can't visit FM's site without going through a Proxy for whatever reason (best guess as someone put a filter on Charter; I eliminated every other cause), but below's how I created it.

".... I found a cool way to generate the star background itself using GIMP's Resynthesize filter and an actual starfield. Also, I used a planet Script-fu for the planet and moon and texturized it as I choosed. Galaxy was easy to create using a raindrop brush and the Whirl and Pinch filter with a Starburst for the center. Starburst for the sun too. Used GIMP's Sparkle filter for the few (didn't want to over do it) flashy stars."
