A client asked that I use a galaxy of some sort as a background on a huge 9ft. wide by 5ft. high poster (printed in 3 pieces) they need for their trade show booth. I searched the net for decent images but none were at the resolution (and the look/shape) I needed for such a large project. ENTER BLENDER! 3 hours and 80 gazillion halo’ed particles later, this was the result:
Unfortunately this image doesn’t do the actual image justice because printed full size in hi-res it looks really cool with amazing detail! Blender makes me proud!
