If you do not mind the curiosity, how did you paint the golden cloud near the core? It has an absolutely exquisite fluid quality to it; in the shot there does not seem to be a single brushstroke to be discerned with the naked eye.

Whoops sorry for the late reply!
You can actually watch me paint this one here on Youtube, and if you have questions on the colors I used, I think I can see my palette on the left sometimes so I can make a decent guess as to what colors I mixed (but not positive!  it's been a while since I've worked on this one).  As to the brushstrokes, I used some soft brushes and did a LOT of swirling haha :)
