Wallpaper – Painted in Photoshop, I used some textures from NASA to get a interesting and dynamic star-field as well as CGI techniques to make the design look more fantastical. I looked at a lot of pictures of the oceans and coral reefs, because I found the colour palette really fun to work with.

Oh you can download this as a wallpaper too (2560x1440)

I'm going to be uploading some more work, paintings, concept art and some sketches too.
Take a look at my website, It only has 2 pieces on it at the moment, but I will be upload more work/projects next week! :D theadamtaylor.com/

Oh it's beautiful. I have always been fascinated by space and this really touched the spot in my heart.
It's a shame that no humans will ever be able to see a scene like this in reality with their own eyes :(

Space is so vast, and so beautiful :') You did a nice job capturing that feeling.

Thanks so much!
I agree, it is a shame that we'll never get to see it in reality - But that could also be a good thing, technically they can all be as 'real' as we want them to be, which I quite like the idea of.

Thanks again :D
