Chaos Star by Varulvsnatt Chaos Star by Varulvsnatt
Disclaimer:

I can't believe I have to write this, but here we go:
This image is not to be used for profiting purposes.
Do not claim it as your own. (this one still goes.)
Do not edit it.
Rights are likely to be given if you properly ask for them. Conditions will be presented if so.
Legal action will be taken if any of the above is tresspassed.

I noticed some people requested this piece as a print. Unfortunatly, I cannot find the original and that is the reason to why it's uploaded in such a small format.
Now, to be able to submit it as a print, I must upload a version of it in higher resolution which I can't do since I'm missing the original file.
For this I am deeply sorry and I wish I could do something about it, but I can't.

-------------------------------

The eight-point star made out of arrows pointing away from the center makes the symbol of chaos.
I wanted to create a feeling of chaos and anti-cosmos, but still keep it very clean and simple.

This image consists of about 7 layers all in all with several layer-styles and layer mixing.
I like how it turned out, but do tell me what I should keep in mind for next time and if you know how to do that in PS-CS2, please tell me.

-------------------------------

EDIT:
I've now changed the copyright to a creative commons contract and I will allow this image to go as viral as anybody desires it to.
While I was at it, I skimmed through my harddrives and managed to find the original. So I changed the main file to that one. Hooray! Full size!
Another hooray is that this means that by no means do you have to ASK me for permission to use it, but I would however love to see where it is used and would thereby, and humbly so, like to be contacted with a link so I can see in what creative ways you use this. Even if it's as much as a screenshot from your cellphone where you have it as your background! I want to see! :) It makes me happy to see how people appreciate my work in different ways.

This is one of the best chaos stars on the net, I'm glad you found the original and are offering useage of it under the CC. That's great! I saw it piece all over the 'net before you did, it's a shame more people don't know who made it..

Yeeeah, it had already spread too much to try and do anything about it and besides, I don't really bother if people use it.
Kinda wish more people would let me know how they use it though so I can see their stuff.

I never did build that website I had said I was going to do, but I think I'm going to work on it and use this as a background as I had asked to do, if you remember. Most artist I've seen don't mind if you use their work, just give them credit, if you're making money offer them a cut at least.

For all it's worth, go right ahead! I do not charge for the usage of it and I certainly do not mind.
I may be curious of the results though, so shoot me a link once it's done, please.

Hey, we're advertising a game called "Kaos" at my school and I'm wondering if I might have permission to use this image in that advertisment. I would really appreciate it!

Hi !
This is a very nice chaos star ^^ Can I use it to create the logo of my group, please ? ^^

As a matter of fact, yes, go ahead!
The chaos star is an ancient symbol and I couldn't really inquire copyright upon it.
So please, do go ahead and use it. :) Just make sure you credit my work properly! ;D

Hi Varulvsnatt!
I can only join the chorus here - I really like the background of the symbol. Would you mind if I used it in another picture for a handout in an RPG?

:iconvarulvsnatt:
Varulvsnatt Featured By Owner Aug 8, 2011
By all means, please do.
What sort of RPG is it though? Is it like DnD or something more darker?
Reply
:iconcifer-2:
Cifer-2 Featured By Owner Aug 9, 2011
A little darker indeed - the game is Black Crusade, from the Fantasy Flight Games line of Warhammer 40k role playing games. The players take on the roles of disciples of the ruinous powers of the chaos gods - for which Games Workshop, the original makers of the 40k setting, coopted the eightpointed star.

Take a look at the finished pictures starting with this one: [link]

Ah~ Looks nice. I've always wondered how a RPG spin-off of 40K would look.
You got me interested in this, mister. ;) I'm going to have to look into this. My friends might like campaign or two of this stuff.
