Prehistory: This is based on the first (and so far only) episode of my online science fiction comedy series, The Bulb Squad Chronicles
. Click that link to look at it.
FINALLY I'm done!
This was done 100% in Photoshop mostly by use of mouse, except for the drawing of the master lightbulb and the spaceship. I took advantage of this man's tutorial
to make the starfield in the background.
It started with a small thingie I called Quark Nodgers By The Sun (or something) and ended in this. What you see here is one fourth the width and height of the original, so it's not as crisp as the full version, but it wasn't intended to be a wallpaper either, so... I've made a gigantic version of it (16500 pixels wide) for printing, and that's what it was made for.
