Tutorial: BakaArts YouTube Channel & Iceflow Studios YouTube Channel
If you have seen my “Earth from Space” posting – https://davidhubbs.wordpress.com/2013/04/29/earth-from-space/ then you you should be able to see where I got the directions for creating the space part of this image. The other part of this image was influenced by BakaArts tutorial to create a tree in half a glass sphere. I decided that I wanted a whole sphere, but with major cracks in it.Slowly the image became an “Earth Day” poster.
I also designed the “Earth Day 2014” logo to finish the image. The www.earthday.org website is a real site with tons of interesting information about the environment. It is most definitely worth a visit.
