Genesis aka Spaceballs by Pr3t3nd3r Genesis aka Spaceballs by Pr3t3nd3r
Have you ever heard of panspermia? A hypothesis saying that life on Earth originated from the so called "seeds of life" that came with asteroids and comets.

And what if there are places in Space, some sort of hives, where life forms in asteroid-like eggs! Unbelievable? Well, my imagination managed to paint that and then my hands followed :)

Don't need to read: :D
I got this idea when I was thinking of a submission for =theluminarium's pack Genesis, but back then I couldn't get the whole picture in my mind and I didn't know how to paint all that. It took me a while and only with a combined power of 5 of my works that I have dropped (I scavenged them for the best moments), I finally managed to put it to life :) I'm more than proud with it.

For those who thinks asteroid-eggs are too much, I will upload a version with just space. But bare in mind, that I will take any comment like:"I like version with no eggs more" as a personal insult and curse you for eternity! :D

P.S. Although I can tell them any time, but I want to thank ^taenaron and ^gucken for starting this contest. I don't know if I win, even if not, I've got a great please making on a sub for it. Thank you guys! :)

Tech stuff:
size - 4000х2500px
time - 2 days, but all had all planets and most of nebs
tools - photoshop cs4, vue 7 for asteroids, wacom intuos 3 for nebs.

Wow, I think the eggs are a nice touch and give a sense of mystery to it
