Northern Star by Fiorina-Artworks Northern Star by Fiorina-Artworks
I am making a series with ships. This is one of the ideas I sketched, and after looking at it, I believed this idea would have to wait, because it would take months to make the picture the way I wanted.

Then I picked exactly this one to make first. ^^ And it wouldn't let me go. It is actually the first one of the series that I've finished.

I've printed it and it really looks nice in a huge size (about 50 x 70 cm). I would like to see it printed even bigger.

Oh, this is just splendid. How did you do the crosshatching texture? I'm looking forward to seeing more!

Thank you ^^ I made a brush at first with simple crossing streaks (directly in Photoshop with the tablet pen). Then I used the brush to make a seamless pattern. The pattern was used on the first background layer, and then I added more layers using the brush again both as pen and as eraser in different sizes to make the sky become darker on top and brighter on the bottom.
It takes a little patience, especially with the seamless pattern which has to be big enough so it doesn't repeat itself much, but once you know what effect you want to achieve and how to do it, it's really fun.

Wow, so beautiful and atmospheric! I love the colour choice, it reminds me of my childhood somehow. I could see this as an illustration for a fairy tale, obviously for children, but of a depth and beauty that rather speaks to adults. Spellbinding! :star:

This is a very beautifull Picture. Your choice of the metaphor and the way you realize it... a pretty clever one. The colors and the design of the northstar give have a warm and friendly feeling, like in a dream. Very Good! Who was your Muse?

Thank you very much <3 I wanted to make a series of pictures with ships, but the focus eventually shifted to the stars. During work, I kept adding height to the picture. ^^
