UPDATE [2009-06-19]
This is the first piece of a bunch that I'll be modify a bit and alter for the better to fresh it up. This piece I couldn't add/change too much since it would only ruin the original concept.

* added rich starscape
* new size for wallpapers
* more contrast
* light on asteroids
* darkened areas in background
* couple more ships


New celestial piece right up!

Been workin on this sucker for quite some time now. Main reason this never finished before is that I didn't have a clear view on how I wanted to build it up, I kinda went on as I went by really hehe.

The asteroid that hits the planet is NOT suppose to be aligned to hit the center, it's ment to hit a bit off.

Nebula brushin is combined freehand and private stock.
This is, for what I know, the first way to present an asteroid belt, with the suggestion to be wrapped around a planet and swirl on ;). Took a bit of work to get it right with colour, position 'n light etc etc.

Title speaks for itself.

Stop stealing art off Google images and claiming them as your own. I ran into this trying to find the original. How can you even feel good when you don't make these works at all?
ladyrapid's avatar
Haha, mate, this IS the original and I'm the creator. Anything else you have some questions about?
Madmaxz24's avatar
If you made this then why is the white line still on the very right hand side and I have the original without the Twilight mark? Why would such a good artist leave a disgusting edge on the piece? Where is the modifications? Any old versions? All I see is the same picture I've had as my computer background forever but with a new mark on it.

I don't know where you've got your version from. But I can say this, people have stolen my piece for years and years and it's been republished all over the net from various artists claiming their artwork. I've also seen versions where people have cloned away my watermark and all kinds of modifications. This is my artwork and this version you see right here is the same as the one I uploaded 11 years ago. What differs is that the different wallpaper versions have different crops, that's all.

Look man I'm sorry if you are the actual creator, just I got suspicious as ever. If I'm wrong then so be it and everyone can call me ignorant.

My first impression was that this was the Earth and Sun around 3.5 billion years from now. Very nice.
