*kneels for starlight* Im glad the tutorial is there, this is a real cool image. Certainly as a background. It gives a ''warmer'' feeling than the eclipse effect, thats more darkness. *kneels*

It didn't work out perfectly but I'm still pretty happy with it. Something didn't go quite with the brush print things, I'm not quite sure right. I opted to go with the hubble deep field for my stars just for fun. I didn't like how it looked with the galaxies in front of the moon so I took them out. Overall I'm pretty happy though. I'm just looking to learn. Any critiques would be more than welcome. Great tutorial!

good try..nice job!


i hope you learn something from that tutorial...btw the main ideas is i want to show how u can apply layer mask and how to create brush.

for the star,you can try to make star from the scratch if u don't want to use the photo..btw f you don't like the looked with the galaxies in front of the moon maybe u can apply layer mask to hide it..

keep on practising and practice make perfect!

Yeah I used the layer mask to hide the stars in front of the moon. I was getting kind of frustrated with the gradient so I just drew a path around the moon and filled in that selection of the mask. If I get a chance I'll mess around with it a little more. Definitely learned a lot though. Thanks again.
