Wouldn't it be amazing if we had a nebula illuminating our planet instead of a single star?
With this concept I went in and thought a bit about what would probably happen. So, first of all, such a nebula (if it's not a planetary one) contains several hundred of stars so temperatures would probably be a bit higher than you and I would like. Even if some stars are shrouded inside the nebula, you'd still get a full blast of high-energy UV-emission from that nebula which isn't particularly suited for life either. So, you basically end up with a fairly hot rock which, apart from having a few impact craters with other cosmic objects, is pretty boring.

Well, even though this now seems boring, I really hope the image itself is not (or at least that much) :D
As a compensation, I prepared a wallpaper-pack again with the following sizes:
:la:1:1   -- 1920x1920
:la: 4:3   -- 1920x1440
:la: 16:9  -- 1920x1080
:la: 16:10 -- 1920x1200

As always, feedback is always appreciated, especially the positive one :D
If you download, please leave a fav as well to become the king or queen of generosity! Or, if you prefer the title "emperor", I have a donation pool set up on my page where you can also drop a few points. "Why," you ask. Because I would love to get that core-membership thing... and because I like points :la:

This is a masterpiece, the warm red on the black background is a great combination. Is that a planet in the center?

This is incredible! I love the colors of the nebula, and how you get the background stars to be different colors, too! Great detail! This looks like a cosmic aurora! <3

You know, I really, really like this.  Sure, the planet would be completely unsuitable for life (as you already pointed out), but that doesn't really matter when the image looks like this!  Great title for the piece, too.  It would be fun to talk sometime about how you do your stars; I've seen and tried a bunch of different methods, and none of them look quite like what you've got going here :)

Thank you so much for your kind words, I really appreciate them! :)
To be honest, there is not really much of a mystery behind my workflow for starfields. It's just a long and, quite frankly, a bit boring procedure to paint them at varying sizes and colors, especially when the canvas gets larger. There is just so much space that needs to be filled :o

Omigosh, really?  You're doing them all by hand?  Mad respect -- that is a lot of work!

It is, yeah. But then again, I think if you really want something to look the way you want it, then you'll have to do it yourself ;)
