Made this for fun as I needed to take a break from another work that's been taking forever and has become quite a bore by now (will still finish it though and will likely be my next submission) Though something simple I was expecting to do within the day just as a break kinda got more detailed and advanced and after a few days I wound up with this. I don't consider any of the time wasted though
I was inspired by a number of sources. Firstly an astrophotography exhibition I saw recently where some images revealed such unimaginably dense clusters of stars that looked like craft-glitter was just poured all over the image. Though mine became more like an irregular galaxy than a star cluster - both are rarely represented as the main subject in space art.
The landscape was inspired by artists like Roger Dean or dA's own =Gate-To-Nowhere
(who tragically dosn't seem to be producing anymore
) as well as some crazy Terragen/Mojoworld renders Ive seen over the years
Rock pillars modelled in Cinema 4D and added to a Vue-landscape which was rendered and painted over for a nicer effect. The space area was done in Photoshop.Do not use, edit or modify any of the images in my gallery on personal sites, galleries, accounts etc without my permission.
