Fog, smoke, and gas art can be added to the field to create space dust and other stellar phenomenon.

Yeah, these look good. Might there be a touch of color added to the stars?
Some people claim they can see color with the naked eye.

I will eventually get to adding color. I also plan to make some stellar features such as cosmic dust (as cover files) and bigger stars (also as cover files). I want to create a good basic base first then allow people to customize with cover and object files.

Sounds like a good plan. I've been experimenting with the old Starfield
Maker, but it's inadequate for clouds and nebulae. Clouds made with
Glitterato tend to fill the image, and are difficult to cut out. However, I made
some large stars in Starfield Maker, which I'm going to try out in DJ, just to
see how they look. They may not work. If they do, I'll post them.

Doesn't work. The stars that Starfield Maker make look fine at 72dpi in
Canvas, but are too small to be seen in DJ. If I enlarge them, they look
terrible. No posts on this. I'll have to watch what you do.

How did poor reggie get out into space??! And why didn't he implode?! And is he really going to up against a tie interceptor with a sword?

These are great. Thanks. Now when my party gets to the BOTTOM of the
dungeon, they'll have something to think about.

He was wearing a special suit of space armor but unfortunately the Empire discovered him before he could unleash his Sword of Sithsmackin on the Man. Blasted genre crossovers.

I agree with Chiropteran,

These clouds would look equally at home around a magical artifact, in a wizard's lab, OR in a starfield.

Great work, and keep it up!

Could also work for an astral dimension or similar setting.

No, what I meant is, when the party gets to the bottom, they look down, at
the stars. It's part of my mega-dungeon, which is still on level three.

Here's an example of the kind of thing I could do with StarfieldCreator. The
problem is, it's 72dpi, and nothing may show up. Even if it does, at 200 dpi,
it's just black.

Hey, it does show up. But I tried reducing it, and that didn't work. Any
suggestions?
