Thousands of years this race lived with the godly sight of a galactic core which iluminated one side of there world and even out shined their own sun. Living with this sight this galactic marvel became revered by this race who saw it as their god, they beleived it was there goal in life to reach it and become one with there god and be reunited with lost friends, family, and loved ones.

Thousands of years past, many things changed but their belief remained the same and one day their technology provided the means of getting them where they wanted to go. Finally their ships left their system and in stasis embarked on a journey that would take them millions of years to complete. But what will they find? What will be waiting for them once they reach thier god.

It reminds me of the Sombrero galaxy with that thick band of dust! I also like that classic starship look!

This picture has been in my favorites for some time now; I just thought you might like to know that I used it as inspiration for describing the sight of a galaxy in my fiction; I credited you and linked back :). Here: [link]

The image is utterly amazing to the eyes. Yet it's saddening to know those who go searching for their "God" will only perish due to immense radiation or black holes once they get there. lol

A super massive, galactic core black hole like all galaxies have.

just wondering if you start with a large canvas with a large dpi is it an effective way to work on the detail so that when it's uploaded you can shrink the size and it make it look better?

Work like this makes me think about the video game Homeworld. Needless to say, I think it's awesome.
