Sapphire waves by ~tadp0l3 I really like the details and shapes of the nebulae, and the overall depth of this piece is breath-taking. Excellent work!

Sapphire waves

Been too long since I submitted a decently worked through piece. But here it is! A lot of time was put into this, and it underwent a lot of transitions over the course of creation. Thanks a lot to ~Baro for invaluable tips and critique.

Original size: 3000x4300 (so there's room for wallpapers, would anyone want that).

This is the second piece of my nebulae centred gem series, the first being "Shores of Gold" (yes, the planet has been reused for that purpose):

All of the pieces of the series:

Shores of gold
Sapphire waves
Birth of a ruby
Calcentine Abyss

We'll see what kind of gemstone (not that gold is actually a gem, but ah well) I'll present next. Emeralds? Amethysts? Rubies? A lot of nice colours and themes too choose from.

Critique and comments are always welcome.

I normally have a thing for very well done space art. This is spectacular, good job. Can't wait for the rest of the series.

Beautiful colours and the cadence of the waves is gorgeous. Really tranquil too.

For some reason, this picture reminds me of dark matter - beautifully done, anyway.
