In the second quarter of 2015, I began to research an new project; “What lies beyond the edge of the Observable Universe?”. I began an experiment to visualize this through our universal language: Mathematics.

After testing complicated algorithms, I arrived at the Perlin Noise algorithm. This algorithm was invented in 1983 (my birth year) by Ken Perlin and was later used by several computer programs.

While experimenting with the noise algorithm, I find out that this was not good enough for the base of the nebula system. Therefore I had to use multiple and different noise fields to produce a more life like nebula form. It became clear through experiments that I needed a starting point to build on. First I created an primal object designed by a procedural algorithm based on the Perlin Noise. After that I transformed the object to particles and manipulate these with the noise algorithm. The result is the base nebula without all the detail. In the second phase I deform the base through maps that are based on fractal noise. The final result is an high dense and high detailed particle system. This way I can create close up, medium and total shots of the nebula.

Your work is different. I like how you came up with the images and I find I can see a lot in them, particularly the black and white pieces. It holds the same intrigue for me as a well rendered abstract painting. The viewer can really bring their own emotions to the table with these. I think it's the sort of work you could hang in your living room and never actually get tired of which is rare.

Holy Moly! The nebulae you are making a freaking awesome! I've just recently started doing digital paintings and I use pictures of space I find all over the net, I would love to use your art in my pieces!

No matter what, I think your page is amazing! Keep being awesome!

Thank you for your great comment on my profile! :) great to see that you are working on digital paintings. By the way these works are all created with particles. So no painting is involved. May I ask you why you are using existing images for your digital paintings? Are you going to use photobashing as a technique?

So far, I've been just having fun with my art, not really taking it too seriously (by that I mean looking up copyright stuff and getting permission for every image and brush set I use). Early on, when I did Constellation Kimono I loved the look of how a galaxy image would make the outfit pop in just the right way. I wanted to explore a bit more using the same, or similar images just for a challenge and for fun. I guess it's sort of an armature's signature at this point, I might keep it, or grow out of it, not sure yet. I'm hoping to make some original art at some point, but so far I'm pretty happy just painting someone else's lineart.
