edit: made some minor adjustments concerning the bird's scale and the lighting of the landscape. Thanks TobiasRoetsch for the critique. ;)

Time for a matte painting which captures my obsession with black holes. X)
It is actually going to be used as a background for another artwork, but I think it deserves to be a standalone piece as well. This is also my submission for the Nature Wallpaper Contest.
I hope you like it!

That's terrifying, I can't really think of anything more terror inducing and melancholic than to be swallowed by a black hole. It's the darkness and the unknown, the two things that humanity fears the most combined in a massive hole in the fabric of the universe.

Awesome work though 👌
