A simple wallpaper.

I haven't done any space artworks recently so this one was quite fun to do i think.
I still like the genre, and if i'll ever buy prints they'll definitely be about space.
To me space art of all genres has the most aesthetic value and beauty. Unfortunately most of the great old-school space artists aren't active anymore, so you usually see crappy pieces like this one.

This is the one that I have on my desktop for I don't know how long, 7-8 months, I think.
Finally I've come across the guy who created it, my kudos to you.

Don't put yourself down, this caught my eye and it makes a great wp. I am a great admirer of your art and have been introduced to it by an internet friend of mine on another site. CG painting, magic!!!

Thanks for giving us a nice wallpaper. Was looking for a replacement for a while.
Your style makes your spacescapes stand out from the rest.

I think this is really engaging, and I like it a lot. The only thing I'd have to critique on this is the pillar of light that only goes up is not realistic of any actual stars, if you had another pillar of light in the other direction as well you could make it a quasar, or instead of a pillar of light, have one or two large solar flares coming off the star. But overall I really like it.

Deep space feel rendered well.
Good job mate.

I really love this. There is a great lonely beauty about space paintings. Don't know if that makes any sense, but that's the way I feel about them. There is something incredibly lonely about space, yet there is so much beauty in it.

This picture is awesome and I think it'll be my new wallpaper.
