Starlight Theory by Groundbase Starlight Theory by Groundbase
A star explodes beautifully near a planet and stretches itself wide.

I was working on a piece that I wanted to make a sequel to Synergy, but the landscape really didn't go with anything, or I ended up with the exact same layout :( So I decided to get rid of the landscape, but the space I had been working on remained. I thought it was still a little too much like Synergy, but oh well. Bit of a quickie before I head off for Spain for a bit. Please enjoy, this isn't me at my best really but do :+fav: it :) Full view please :D

That's a hot nebula =)
Although, aren't you afraid that someone could rip off of this? It's perfect and big for those rippers :fork:
I just hope nobody rips off of you 'cuz you really rock at this =)

Hm, you have a point there. I'll post at a smaller resolution then. Although I kind of take ripping as a complement because it means someone considers it to be very good =P

Ugh... Well I wore all my commenting efforts for you out on Synergy!
And I probably won't fav this, because Synergy was a lot better.

But this is a really nice nebula, I must say that, I like it more than the one you came out with in Synergy. This is of course a much more simple shape and design for the nubulae, but I think the lighting is just done better in this one. The colours/lighting/shading around the light source, the bright burning centre or whatever you want to call it, just seems a lot smoother and controlled. Not sure how to explain it in English >.< but hopefully that is almost what I mean.

As I said, this isn't me at my best =P As for the lighting, I tried to make it more dynamic by not adding any stars. That way your eyes are drawn straight to the main light source :)

Still impressive looking though, and very well pulled together.

One thing sticks out to me. The star exploding.. It looks like something is actually flaking from the foreground making like a door.
