Phantoms by cosmicspark Phantoms by cosmicspark
I have loved the stars too fondly to be fearful of the night.
   -Sarah Williams, Twilight Hours: A Legacy of Verse
______________________________________________
Edit: Thanks for the daily deviation and all the love, never expected that!

Hey everyone, here is the next painting, many more to come.  I try to do at least one major painting per month, sometimes its more like 6 weeks. :)
There's a premium download with high resolution artwork which will let you look closely at all the hard work I put into detailing this painting.  I named it Phantoms because of the eerie, wispy shape of the nebula.  It took about 20 hours to create in Photoshop with the aid of a Wacom Intuous Pro.  The planet's base textures are rendered directly in Photoshop with CC2014's 3D abilities.  I totally love the 3D being built in directly, now that I'm getting the hang of it.

Whenever I release a completed painting (not a sketch or commission) I submit it to my Patreon ( www.patreon.com/cosmicspark?ty… ) page and my most loving fans who have pledged money to me will award me with these pledges.  I'd like to thank Elydril and Claire Leng for supporting me on patreon!  My patrons get the distinct advantage of getting their mind blown by my high resolution artwork which I email to them automatically, and also access to the private video tutorials which I release with some paintings.  Alternately you can buy the digital downloads here on DA if you would prefer to pick and choose which artworks to support.

The Digital Download includes:
1.  High resolution artwork of this painting! (3600x2400 size, detailed to the pixel)
2.  A wallpaper pack fitting various screen sizes.

Daily Deviation

Given 2016-09-01
In addition to his characteristic sense for almost (or more than) astrophotographic nuance, cosmicspark employs space scenery in a wonderfully eerie and uniquely colourful way in Phantoms. ( Featured by cosmicbound )

Those lens flares are quite convincing. And that quote seems obscure, I wonder how you dug it up. Plenty of details, I think I'll have to come back to it. Needless to say, the painted nebulae has the depths of an astrophotograph. I like how you sneaked in another pulsar there; this one kind of forms a compositional foreground effect which is useful.

That's exactly why I added that pulsar stream of charged particles, because I wanted something to connect the distant background to the foreground planets.  Thanks for your comment :)
