Fun With Planets

I've been busy writing my fingertips to the bone this week, and my poor PhotoShop habit ended up sorely neglected. So today, I thought I'd mess around and see what I can come up with.

I started with a blank canvas. Three hours later, this was the result:

Since I liked the planet so much, I thought I'd mess with it a little more. So, using Photoshop's brilliant filters, I also came up with...

Planet Under Shattered Glass

Comic Book Planet

Nuclear Planet

Planet on Canvas

Of course, all this messing around with planets got me hankering to write a science-fiction book... something with over-the-top sexy, naughty aliens. What do you think?

Oh, and which planet version is your favorite?

Looks wonderful Lacey! I can't decide which I like best, although you really captured that gritty comic book feel (I love comic book art) And yes, naughty aliens! Please!!!

Selena -- I really like that one, too. It made me think of paint on canvas.

Robin -- Thank you! I haven't written a science fiction story in a while. I think it may be time to remedy that!

Fi -- The comic book version really captured my imagination, too. Hmm... I'm envisioning a planet full of out-of-work superheroes who have to hire themselves out throughout the universe. Could be fun!

Great job, Lacey! The comic book planet reminds me of something out of Heroes, but that last one was my fave, I think! And YEEHAW! Write, Lacey, write!!

Thank you, Amy! You're right about the comic book planet looking like something right out of Heroes... I didn't see it until you mentioned it. :-)

I adore them. The comic book one rocks and the last one reminds me of a grainy photo too. I totally agree with Selena.

Looks great, hon!

Dawn -- Thank you, sweetie! If only there were more hours in a day to pursue non-writing hobbies. *sigh*

I hear you on that, Lacey. I rarely get to flex my artistic muscles lately. *double sigh*

But the beautiful part is...you can walk away from a digital art piece for a long time and not worry about it ruining. I used to work with acrylics and oils and you had to finish the project within a few days to get what you wanted...
