This is an update of an old piece I made back in 2008. The update is quite huge and I actually like how it turned out, that's why I figured why not submit this as a new deviation?

Anyways, I'm incredibly busy due to uni stuff lately, so I hardly have time to create something. It's exhausting. .____.'

Wallpapers on my website! www.xkire.de

You can find the old version in my scraps:


As always, thanks for all the comments and favs! :)

This is awesome, just wondering but how did you make the space behind it??

what exactly do you mean?
The nebula is painted in photoshop refined with a few textures to enhance the details. The stars are made with hundreds of tiny little lens flares.
Thank you!

Lol yeah sorry that wasn't the best way I could have worded that question but you answered it, I was just wondering how you highlighted and darkened parts of it, I'm just starting getting into space art haha

okay glad I answered your question. Well you can do the highlighting with simple brushing in dark and bright colors and then switch the layer blending mode to soft light or something ;)
