Ominous Nebula for DungeonDraft
Dazzling whirling displays of color and light, birthing stars and dark matter!
70 nebula designs in 3 different fixed color sets for a total of 210 nebula! Plus the DungeonDraft version comes with the 70 designs set up as “colorable” assets and also as lights! It also includes the fixed color nebula as 50% opacity versions for blending.
These are relatively small assets, on average 1200 pixels on the wide side (print of 3 inches, 12 squares in a virtual tabletop). In DungeonDraft, you can scale them between 1 square to cover around 10-18 squares on the large side. Combine multiple nebula assets to make a larger space anomaly! Use a mixture of tinted, transparent and fixed color pieces, or pick just one to use as a feature. When placed on a dark star map they will blend in perfectly, but here’s what they look like on the default texture so you can get a sense of what one asset will look like in action.
Install these Nebula in DungeonDraft by downloading the .dungeondraft_pack from the included Google Drive link and placing in your DungeonDraft folder while the program is off. Activate from your asset manager by clicking Assets on the top menu to use.
Ominous Nebula for Other World Mapper
Install in Other World Mapper by unzipping the generic packs and placing the files in Ominous Nebula patterns.zip in “Other World Mapper / Textures / Ominous Nebula Patterns / .png files here” and the files in “Ominous Nebula” into “Other World Mapper / Features / Ominous Nebula / Ominous Nebula color / .png files” or use the in program asset manager and navigate to where you placed the unzipped files.

Procedural Art Disclaimer:
This pack uses procedural generated art, post processed with a hefty amount of editing to make them actually useful as DungeonDraft assets. I used the tool Stable Diffusion specifically because I could train my own models on my previous packs to use the tool.
If you would prefer a 100% human-driven fully painted nebula experience I recommend my pack, Ominous Clouds: Rainbows, Lightning Storms, Magic Orbs and Nebulas! (Wonderdraft version now included!), as all assets in that pack are digitally painted with no supportive programs.
I trained a model on my previous packs and combined that with a model trained only on JWST space photos.
I manually painted several low resolution simple nebula cloud shapes.
I ran img-to-img with my model on the simple paintings of nebula shapes to add detail to them. This ensured that the generation kept to my color scheme and general shape, infusing my sketched concept with more depth.
I manually masked every single one to remove the backgrounds from all of the generated nebula, as it is currently impossible to use Stable Diffusion to make transparent .pngs.
I used photo editing, photobashing and painting techniques to give them a wide variety of colors, contrast, saturation and clean up parts I didn't love.
Using this technique let me give you a pack with more detail and almost 3x as many objects as I would have if I'd done everything manually, for the same price. The two packs most similar to this one have only around 25 unique objects. Ultimately this pack took just as long to create as any of my other space packs and I believe it holds a great deal of value for the nebula loving space map creator.
Is this technique going to replace my previous styles? No. This pack was a fun experiment where I tried out the depth of possibility available when you train an AI model on your own art. You can expect my future packs to include a mixture of procedural generative packs and classic style packs, depending on what I feel like creating, as I still enjoy drawing, painting, 3D modelling and photobashing!
If there is interest, at some point I may also release the models I've created from my own art. If you've bought my packs you are allowed to use them to create your own AI models too. I don't mind.
I hope you have fun with it!
