"A still more glorious dawn awaits, not a sun rise, but a galaxy rise. A morning filled with 400 billion suns; the rising of the milky way."

~Carl Sagan


Piece for ~kcravenyote of her character Niko, which was originally going to be 6 hours, and then I got carried away! I didn't intend for a full background, but I got one. I really enjoyed working on it though, it was a TON of fun. First art of 2012, yay!

Also, I got a really stellar redline critique from *dimespin on the arm closest to the viewer, and she let me draw over it to get the arm right!

Brush I used is made by the wonderful *Dreamspirit, thank you for sharing it with me!

Done in Photoshop with a Wacom Intuos 3
About 18 hours
