ALBATROSS + SPACE

ALBATROSS + SOLAR FLARE


On a moon in a galaxy far away, there lives a flock of giant space albatross. The birds make their homes in the craters that mar the moon’s surface. From their nests there, they can view the nearby sun. Every so often, a large solar flare bursts forth, casting hundreds of molten minnows into space. The giant space albatross descend upon the fish and glide home on solar wind to consume their prize.

Notes: Used about 40 layers on this one. Experimented with more masks, opacity, and the blur and smudge tools. Most particularly, I enjoyed experimenting with the “warp” transformation when manipulating the fish. I think the results were pretty effective, given the forgiving shape of the fish. Enjoyed doing space imagery.
