Really digging this piece! At first glance I could see this being a swarmed bustling planet with intergalactic travel immigration as the norm. But then when I look closer and admire the detail, I can see the beauty in the silence and views from space. Love the double entendre going on

If its possible, I'd like to feature this image on YouTube with accompanying epic orchestral music? I have other Deviant Artists on there and I post the link to the art and link to the artist's profile page in the bio of the video. I'll send the link to you to approve of before going public with it. It's a basic Ken Burns effect with no deviation from the original artwork. Last part of the song features the image as a whole. Let me know if you'd like this! :)

Holy crap this is cool.

I wonder how many people could actually live in a city this densely populated...

Anyhow, this deserves to go in my Epic collection... Good work :nod:
