Feels good to stretch the legs a bit and finally devote some time to the celestial again. I'm in talks to work on a 2 month long space related project, so figured now was a good time to see what I could accomplish after all this time.
This is actually developed from a speedpaint I did some time ago ([link]
) - seemed like a decent jumping off point. I enjoyed how violent the nebula was looking in that speedwork and wanted to further push the notion of conflicting, volatile gases colliding in space. Turned out tamer than I had it midway through the process, but I think I'll revisit the concept somewhere down the line - see how stormy we can make these nebulae.
I played around with some of the lovely brushes by
which I highly recommend - at the very least they show what can be achieved when time is invested in constructing a good set of brushes (something I will now attempt to do myself). I was also lazy and made use of one of
's fantastic starfield resources.
