While I sometimes experiment with abstract art or fractals, my astronomical art is normally realistic. This is an attempt at a less realistic work, which I call “Core Collapse The original image was from Amberlight 2, which I thin processed in Photoshop elements, choosing to deliberately take it in directions I would normally avoid, such as loss of details.
I studied astronomy at University College London, but failled to get my degree. For many years pre-internet, I ran the bulletin board "Starbase 1", which is why you will frequently see me referring to myself as that! I am currently on the board of the IAAA. I operate exclusively in digitals using many different software packages. Most often Lightwave 3d, Vue, Photoshop Elemnts, Affinity Photo. I also ejoy oddball graphics packages like Xenodream, Amberlight, aqnd others. View all posts by Nick Stevens
