** Full view essential **

This is the finished version of my piece entitled nebulae in progress [link] I am very pleased with how this turned out, though you may have to play with the brightness and contrast settings on your monitor to get the best results.

The image was completed over a period of 4 months it had more than 80 layers and the actual final resolution was 3000x4500 pixels.

I was just browsing through a lot of my old favorites, and re-found this image.

It is still awesome after three years. Just an FYI.

thorgasm Featured By Owner Dec 12, 2005
you just ended my (now i realize extremely limited) view of what celestial art can be. it was on total whim that i decided to look through your gallery, and this is by far my favorite piece, its simply wonderful. a :+fav:, or indeed a hundred does not do it justice.
RogueWanderer Featured By Owner Nov 9, 2005
WOW *rubs eyes* i love the colours so much ^^

How can i suggest this for a dd?
sacredhideaway Featured By Owner Aug 11, 2005
Hoo... leeee.... crap.... :wow:

It's so beautiful. The title fits perfectly. Sigh.
PatGoltz Featured By Owner Aug 10, 2005  Professional General Artist
Why do you need lots of layers? How do you combine them? This is pretty, and I wish I could do this.
RadiantGlyph Featured By Owner Jul 5, 2005  Hobbyist General Artist
The word amazing, and majestic perhaps even I beleive falls far short of describing the amazingly powerful yet gently controlled explosion of cosmic energy that seems so beautifull portrayed inthis absolutely fantastic spacescape...
The direction of the piece, not to mention every last tiny star and lit fluctutation in the nebulouos cloud caught my eye even as a thumbnail. As an accurate portrayal it looks like something straight out of an photographic astronomy textbook, but then, that's the beauty of space, the absolute plausible surreality of its landscapes...

Beautiful work indeed, marvellously impressive like you wouldn't beleive......
Exhale-NL Featured By Owner Jun 24, 2005
goddamn wow, I love the brushing and colors you use, so realistic!
BlazinWC Featured By Owner Jun 16, 2005
Amazing nebula, this one speaks for itself.... + Fav.

Mind blowing! It's like I've been transported to a beautiful nebula in space... I don't want to return to earth!
Anafiel Featured By Owner May 16, 2005  Hobbyist Digital Artist
ooo! You know what? I see a woman in a dress walking elegantly through a doorway...the white being the front part of her dress. Do you kinda see that? o.O

soooo pretty

damn lovely nebula!
Farewell100 Featured By Owner Apr 14, 2005   Digital Artist
Absolutely incredible. I could stare at it for hours. :)
You should be very proud.
decline Featured By Owner Mar 21, 2005
Very nice one. I like the bottom part best. Myself, I use few colours in the nebulas, so this was something "new".
PatGoltz Featured By Owner Feb 8, 2005  Professional General Artist
Oh, this turned out well! When did you get a chance to use the Hubble? It looks totally real!

Is there a tutorial anyplace?
visualsurge Featured By Owner Nov 13, 2004   Interface Designer
This is just amazing. It's so huge too. I can't imagine keeping track on all of it at the same time.
Wonderful, just wonderful. Great job!!

sumopiggy Featured By Owner Oct 9, 2004
:jawdrop: Lol, and here I was starting to think I was getting quite good at nebula, when really Im nothing compared to you !
I cant believe I didnt see this in your gallery, but I guess everything was all too good that I didnt know what one to look at first.
Anyway Im glad I came across this :D
Amazing work man.

cosmicbound Featured By Owner Aug 5, 2004
This is one of my favourite nebulae of all time bud.
Let me elaborate, let me elaborate real good :D
No, my comment dosnt end there, keep reading :)
Here is my insight on the picture:

Colour & lighting:
You have mastered colour in this piece beautifully,
The dynamic feels of the colours, They flow so well, astoundingly beautiful to the eye, truly, a glory to behold you have made,
Whats even more beautiful is the interaction of light, It all seems to flow, & the impacts of small stars against the colour with their own colour,
just breathtaking indeed.

The texturing in this nebulae are so crisp & amazing, the detailing to them brings it to life,
like a depthed nebulae, breathing with life, moving with force, everchanging with beauty,
You have captured the sense of life, depth & detail in such a precise fashion, you can look at the nebulae over & over,
& still find new details to please the eye, astounding work bud!

Something so many people forget amidst their goal, yet you have an eye for starfield detailing,
once again i look at your pictures, & find your starfields to be astoundingly amazing, the details you have invested in them is insane,
the small flare stars, with whirling energy outburts, & distribution of light, brings the piece to life,
& the variation truly makes you wonder if your seeing a photo or not, its like your giving us an insight into heaven,
the celestial heaven.

Your classic style border & title fit so well with the pieces, they dont get in the way,
& they have a professional edge to them, a delicate addition that serves its purpose yet also adds to the art, nice!

Unique work here, the nebulae is like no other, it truly whirls with life untold, very good job man.

All in all, this is a fantastic nebulae that all should see, the astounding detail & dynamic use of elements gives this piece a value not seen often! :thumbsup:
