I really love this one. Can I use it as a background for some private wallpapers? If I can, and I ever show them to anyone, then of course I'll give you the credits for the background.

Holy cow this is spectacular! The 4 montsh you spent on this didn't go waste, and this does make a -beautiful- wallpaper. The deatils are soo amzing and sharp as well as blended inot hte piece as a whole. I was listening to [link] {Copyrighted to Metroid Prime, and Makers of the Game} Fitted quite nicely, and gave a nice feeling to it. Great job, bravo.

Amazing image, looks so very real!
bluespeed9 Featured By Owner Nov 26, 2004  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Dear Lord... that is simply stunning. I am seriously stunned by the amount of detail that you've incorporated into this piece and of couse, the simple size and grandeur of it all. In all honesty, if someone showed me this in my astronomy class, I would be compelled to believe that that really existed, somewhere, out there in the cosmos. Also, as a small side note, the border is quite fitting, it's small enough and yet, still is apparent enough to be effective but not imposing.

Damn fine work. :thumbsup:
Kolpaka Featured By Owner Nov 25, 2004

froggerlotr Featured By Owner Nov 10, 2004
Wonderful depth and color...I can see the swan shape...I'm dead serious it likes like something out of nasa...
thelastmarauder Featured By Owner Nov 10, 2004
It looks more like two swans....

Anyway, contrary to the first few posts, I think the focus of this is exactly what it should be. The "nebula" being in the center doesn't take away from the aspect of the stars at all.... Actually, the stars do a lot to accentuate the nebula. Though they don't exactly look "real", they really are better this way, because besides being a lot more personally artistic than a randomly generated starfield, they serve to break up the black parts better.

Good work. One of your best so far. A lot of work went into this one, and it shows.
