    Lightbulb Spacescapes! Quick and Easy Tutorial

    heya
    I found a way to create "realistic looking" spacescapes using ArtRage Studio Pro 3.5 - it just happened ... a happy accident

    I'm gonna post some screenshots and explain what I did. please let me know if there's anything I should add for clarification.

    1. open AR with default canvas, select chalk at size 500% and 0% pressure, paint a blue sphere.

    2. duplicate the layer and change the blend mode of the top layer to "Difference" - it will become black

    4. zoom out so you get more space around your canvas, then transform layer contents to enlarge the black sphere.

    5. resize the black sphere until it fills the whole canvas and the borders are not visible anymore.

    7. optional:
    in case you've got too many stars which can happen depending on the pressure of your stylus and roughness of your canvas, duplicate the layer and set the top layer to "multiply" - this will make some stars disappear. merge both layers.

    8. now let's create some galaxies!
    a) add a new layer, move it under your existing stars-layer and select the glitter tool (yes!).
    select "Bubble Mass" (it's a default preset) in any colour.
    move the metallic slider to 100% (YES!).
    paint some squigglies
    b) add a new layer above the black stars layer, change blend mode to "color burn".
    still with metallic glitter tool, change the settings to Grit, 100% pressure, 100% glitter size, 0% multicolor. set tool size to 250% or something big.
    paint galaxies
