Starfield tutorial by tadp0l3 Starfield tutorial by tadp0l3
All right, here's my first tutorial. About time, don't you think? I don't know how many new things this tutorial will teach you. Put even if only a few persons can draw some inspiration from it it's worth it.

The main reason I wrote this tutorial, aside from giving back to the community, is the fact that I've noticed that starfields are often sorely under-worked in a lot of pieces I see published on deviantart. I'm guilty of the same myself a lot of times. But in many cases the starfield is what makes or brakes a piece. The difference between a good and a marvellous piece of art. So this is an attempt to draw some focus to a matter that seems to have been somewhat forgotten. Which is somewhat strange, seeing as starfields are such a major thing in space and space art.

As soon as I get some left over time I'll include this tutorial in The Grand Space Collection, if you haven't checked that one out yet, you should. It's a collection of over 50 tutorials and resources on the space art theme by some of our most distinguished space artists on deviantart.

Finally, please don't copy and spread this tutorial outside of deviantart without my permission. And please give me a shout if you use it so that I can see what you've done.

Thanks!
