Well, I wasn't able to work on any of my other maps at school, so instead I decided to try my hand at making a star field. Space has always interested me, and I think it turned out fairly well. I didn't add any light flares or anything, but I didn't really feel like it was necessary. (I should note that you might need to open the image in a new tab to see it a bit better.)

I think it looks really good, but then again if a map has anything to do with stars I'm pretty much in love with it anyway. :) The only thing I can really say about it is that I think it should be a little bigger, its hard to see some of the little details.

Excellent. I wouldn't do any flares. They are fine and sometimes look good, but they are done to death and not an actual feature of stars. Be fun to see this with some mapping elements on it. I'm always interested in peoples choices for futuristic designs.

Is it a map?

Technically, yeah. I plan on putting some orbit patterns and maybe some constellations in eventually.

That's a quite beautiful star field :) It does lack something to make it a map, though. I think the additions you mentioned are good ideas. I hope you'll make it a little bigger too :P

lots of potential.
