And this is where you are only half right! :)

This piece is a remake of one of my old pieces called:
Starlit Night

I was quite sad about me not having a bigger size of Starlit Night for print purposes all these years.
That is why I have decided to renew this piece.
Also this piece has a personal meaning to me as an artist.
This piece is painted and boosted with some textures from

Last year I had this as my wallpaper for quite a while, the first thing that took me was how the cat looks onwards with it's curiosity, the plain fields seem to go on forever and that gives it a peaceful feeling, a calm atmosphere. The planet/moon in the distance looks great, the clouds surrounding it which are at the end of the hills I believe, looks brilliant in detail. The only thing that I thought made it less brilliant was the coloured stars, but then I thought about a recent programme, Wonders of the Universe - Series 2, it reminded me of that, because stars emit colours of the properties/elements they hold, which is fantastic, you've done a great job of that, but if they were less saturated it would make more sense, but even so, it looks brilliant otherwise, mystery and imagination wise. I love the view seeing whatever they are flying away from the planet/moon, it adds a great atmospheric feeling, leaving the viewer to guess what's going on. Great job, keep it up!

I ve been thinking about this for a long time. For the 1920*1080 version do you have a higher resolution version with bigger file size. The current one i have is 203KB and thats not high quality enough maybe at least bigger than 1MB?

Love this wallpaper! Had downloaded like three years ago and still use it in new computers. The original version too.
Amazing work! Amazing quietly, astunishing and peaceful wallpaper!

It makes me want to discover what is beyond the horizon.  I love the scale and distance you have shown in this image.

I don't mind the cat at all! And I like how it looks black and white at first, but the stars are coloured.

Brilliant, I love it. Finally found the author. Using it on all my computers and laptops. The cat looks just like my cat!

Awesome pic! (love the cat) Do you mind if I use it as a background for a poster of sorts that I'm making using my OCs? I'll be sure to credit you :)

sorry for the late reply! you're probably not interested anymore. But normally I don't allow others to use my images.
I can make exceptions, if it's limited to dA and non-commercial use only.

Very dreamy. I could stare at it for hours, and probably will, in fact.
Thank you for sharing this!
