Under the Stars by AuroraLion Under the Stars by AuroraLion
Was just chilling out, listening to Pretty Lights, mostly the Summer's Gone album in particular. Just needed to work on something relaxing~
There's a TON of subtle detailing in the landscape, but I'm not sure if anyone who doesn't use a 4K monitor will even be able to see it. I switched to looking at it on an iMac instead of my computer and monitor, and it just all looks black :'D

Oh man I'm so terrible with keeping up with people's deviations though honestly all social media in general :'D

Aww you're too kind! ;A; Space art is just so relaxing to create and takes you on a journey to somewhere far. It's definitely my favorite subject matter anymore~

Oh man I had to make so many custom brushes to pull them off! It's really part of the fun of making space art. I modified fur/paint stroke brushes and even made of my own from taking pics of tree branches for those wispy clouds. Likewise I wish I could do such beautiful simple (but still complex? idk how to explain it ;v; ) art pieces like you do ;A;

I just spent a few minutes re-admiring your work seriously it blows me away each time haha. That's actually awesome how you create and modify your own brushes to do so, I want to try that!
Pfft, i wish i could do work like YOU!

SO I TOTALLY MISSED SEEING THIS COMMENT TIL NOW ;A;
*coughs* So anyway... DUDE I wish I could just climb in and sit too! That would be amazing ;3; (it's even my current desktop background too).

I actually made some all new brushes just specifically for nebulae! For the weird really liney/broken up cloud shapes I made a  brush out of a pic I took of tree branches :'D

So I need to comment on this again just cuz this looks so amazing and beautiful like omg ;A; Can't get over how amazing your nebulae look and every new one looks more incredible and realistic than the one before which should totally break the laws of nature but you keep ignoring that lol
Wish I could experience such a view like Jagd and Auscura sometime ;v;

I have a seven year old dying VAIO but I can see a good amount of detail in the landscape. All looks amazing and you captured the idea very well, I love paintings and photos like this...probably my favorite type of pictures. Clap

Ah that's good ^^ I got pretty spoiled with my new 4k ultra HD monitor. I can just see so values and details I never could before. And thank you! These are my favs as well and there's just something about space that I just love.
