"Night by night, I have been watching the sky, recognizing the constellations, and thought this would be the greatest sight one could have. Until I had the chance to ascend into greater heights; to transcend over the mere terrestial viewpoint into the empyreal. A vista that is unmatched, as the moon slowly rises over the horizon..."

Recently, I've been trying out a new method for painting nebulae (you can see a few attempts in the latest images of my scrap-folder) and this is the outcome of it. I am pretty happy about the image because it turned out exactly how I imagined it :)
Because I personally think the neb looks quite cool, I uploaded it as well. Feel free to check it out here: [link]

Fairly quick with something between 5 and 8 hours. Most time went into tweaking the colors because I, once again, painted in black and white :p
Special thanks to the guys in the SpaceArt-channel for their constructive criticism!
Also, this is my entry for #ForgottenGalaxy's Moon Contest. Wish me luck!

I made a wallpaper-pack! :D
Available sizes are:
:bulletblue: 5:4 -- 1920x1536
:bulletblue: 4:3 -- 2048x1536
:bulletblue: 5:2 -- 2560x1024
:bulletblue: 16:9 -- 2560x1440
:bulletblue: 16:10 -- 2560x1600
If you have a smaller monitor, just scale it down. No point in providing any possible size and therefore forcing you to download a 100MB-wallpaper-pack ;)

As usual, favs and comments are highly appreciated!

Enjoy :)

- original size: 7500x3750
- PSD-filesize: 431MB
- Hardware: Wacom Intuos 3
- Software: Adobe Photoshop CS3
- random fact about these facts: each line contained the number 3.
- another random fact: 90% of the readers just read the previous lines again :p

So, woah, I just woke up and found this being a DD... yeah, I don't know what to say really; kind of speechless right now xD
Thank you =cjpul for suggesting and ^Voyager212 for featuring! You really made my day :)
