Amber of the Void

Fields of amber tinted nebula are lit up by a star cluster hovering light years above.  Inside, a newly formed large blue star strips away gas from within the nebula, carving out a cavern beneath the amber landscape.  Many stars are formed in these bright, chaotic, and dusty cradles.

This painting is closely based on NGC6357

Created for the Digitalist May Monthly Challenge: Sci-fi and Space

I spot the brightness difference on this one too. You did a good job of enhancing the sense of detail and motion in this over the original subject. Not sure of some of the smudge work in the mid-upper left part of the nebula though -- some of it seems a little too sharp.

I actually thought it was a real astrophotography when I first saw it.

Well done on an excellent piece.

Amazing nebulae. Do you give cosmic art lessons? I think I will need some from you!

I have thought about it before, using remote desktop viewing I could walk someone through the art process.

I have seen such work in Astronomy Now or Scientific American magazines, but I have to admit that you are doing great (or best) work. I have been used to amateur astronomy for years and always tried to adopt elements of it in my artworks, but you excel. I have watched your video on Rose Nebula (Photoshop time lapse) and realized some things about your technique. I should think of some methods to adopt this using acrylic paint (traditional painting), but I am not sure if one can succeed in such detail. What you are doing is great and I hope to watch future work of yours, well done.

Stunning piece.  I think one of those cloud wisps looks like a hand reaching out or up.
