This image was done entirely in Photoshop using my own set of "nebula" brushes. The brushes are actually composed of photographs of normal everyday clouds I took myself and converted in PS to useful brushes for this kind of work. The planet is also composed of similar PS brushes and was originally my Saturn texture. If you like this image, leave a few comments and tell me what you think!
Pareidolia is taking hold of me as I look at this image. Definitely see a face there. The outer/upper nebula is a huge mop of wild red hair like Carrot-Top's used to be; the lower is its bright red beard. The upper bright stars are the eyes. The triangular set of star underneath is the nose. That dark trail of gas is the party streamer the nebula is blowing to celebrate the New Year, and the planet at lower right is the trailing end of said party favor. Wheeeee.
Imagine what I'd see if I ever got high, drunk, or stoned!!
