I have been meaning to create an aurora themed scene for a long time and, finally, the glacier images by 8moments inspired me to do it! The nebula looks simple enough but it is surprisingly difficult to make the clouds look decent and somewhat believable at the same time. I had to study a lot of the references to get it right eventually. However... I believe the ice shards are the true star of the show here. :XD: I'm really happy with how they turned out and I hope you like them as much as I do.

The shards really turned out nicely! :) I especially like the colours of that spacecraft drive and how they fit perfectly to the colours of the aurora.

Yeah I do like the whole artwork but that broken ice.... Oo Weeee xD
Did you paint that? Really amazing work either way, looks as though it is real...
Really awesome work that can only be done with true understanding of nuance. :)

haha no, those shards are just copypasta from the ground, edited with a little PS magic of course. :XD: Thanks for the kind words Rogerito! Hope you had some relaxing Christmas days!

It really looks like the transparency and light reflections make sense. :D
