This is the third nebula I started with kind of a new technique. I always approached the nebula-painting from two directions: Use of textures and textured brushes (Starlit Sky Series [link] ) and the pure round-soft-brush paintings (for example Break Through [link] ).

In my newer work I tried to combine both techniques into one. The biggest difference is that I use much more custom brushes without neglecting the pure painting. I try to combine the randomness of custombrushes with the precise work of a default-brush. Worked out pretty well if you ask me. At least I'm satisfied.

Comments & Critique much appreciated as always.

More to come...

Edit: Uploaded a sharper image.

I was recently asked for permission for this to be used by the British National Science-Fiction Convention [link]

So I decided to update the image somewhat, here is the result i hope those of you who have seen the original before don't mind me posting this again.

Finally I found the time to make something new. It really was a pleasure to work on this one. Some parts turned out even better than I had planned originally. Something I tried to achieve is that there clearly is a huge distance between the planets and the nebula. I don't know if this setup is actually realistic at all. I think at that distance not very much of the nebula's light would actually reach those two planets but anyways. At least it looks cool.
I hope you like it as much as I do.

Comments are very welcome - as always.

Credit to:
- ~mr-texture
I used two of his textures for the surface of the left planet.
- and to the person who made the texture I used for the right planet. I don't remember where I took it from. If someone recognizes it - which I doubt - PLEASE tell me.
