Default Fedora-art-list Digest, Vol 35, Issue 27

I made the background stars in the picture using Gimp, first I copied bg layes. then I* opened noise/hurl, set percent to 1, and iterations to 1, and then hurled random pixels over the screen. Then I copied that layer and enlarged it by* 200%, I repeated this step to give me 4 sizes and densities of stars. now here comes the tricky bit. on each layer I picked the free hand selection tool and pretty much furiously scribbled all over the screen and then expanded the mask by about 5 pixels, and then pressed delete. this results in a more realistic distribution of stars.
I created a fifth layer and using pencil aded four large stars and and Jupiter and Saturn. I used the neon filter* on this layer to make Jupiter and Mars appear to glow. I could send you the original unflattened Gimp file to play around with if you like.

| I've created another folder icon for the echo-perspective --

Continents will still look distorted. No much comments to add with other
folder variants.

I think I would like better an image were the stars are not that sharp
and which looks more "realistic", maybe something more like
http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Centre_of_the_Milky_Way.jpg or
even better, see /usr/share/pixmaps/backgrounds/cosmos/cloud.jpg (which
is awesome).

Just out of curiosity, how you made this image?

hi
its looking good, it might look better, if the background is dark navvy
blue, rather than black. though black is a conventional color of night sky,
but to gel with fedora color scheme its better to use blue shades.

Thanks, this was an informative reading! I must find some free time and
try to play with your steps sometime.
