Chris Keegan Turns Celestial Photography Into Brilliant Illustrations

Chris Keegan Turns Celestial Photography Into Brilliant Illustrations

English illustrator Chris Keegan has created a strange and intriguing series including space photography, illustration, and a great deal of imagination. Using photos taken from NASA at Chandra X-Ray Observatory, the artist used Photoshop to create otherworldly creatures and people from the stars above. In order to appear more like a natural phenomenon, Keegan merely strengthened pre-existing shapes within the clusters, creating a more awesome and realistic experience for the viewer.
