My final submission to =theluminarium's pack 5th Dimension.

This work was inspired by the Swan Nebula (m17) pretty while ago. The first version of the work was pretty lame and I had to put it away.

I recalled about this work when I saw a work by my fellow artist =JoeJesus. His Brightscape reminded me that I had a similar work waiting for me :)

And finally this work was inspired by this user icon :iconmark-s: :D


It was a nice opportunity to finally draw a space that is not dark and gloomy but bright and "joy" sort to say. I decided to start the work from the white sheet to get rid of the previous mistakes and implement my new skills in painting nebs.


:bulletblue: Techs:

Size - 4800х3000
Time - day
Layers - ~60
Software and hardware used: Photoshop CS4, Wacom Intuos3



I'm more than satisfied with this work. It turned out exactly as I imagined it. Hope you like it too :)

Can't believe I've missed this pieces of yours. Magnificent! I try to work with a somewhat bright canvas when creating my space scapes - this piece is incredibly bright though, and yet fantastic! Love that texture on the planet btw! :)

Wow, it's nice to see something new in the realm of space art. And it's not only a new concept, but also pulled off well! :nod: I really enjoy your colours, the highkey values and the simple composition. The planet's texture is complex and creates a lot of detail, where in contrast to that the nebulaes are rather quiet and simple. And it is interesting how cold this piece looks in a way. And I don't mean that in a bad way.

Really nice work, impressive! :highfive:

Yes! I remember seeing this on the threads and I couldn't wait to see it here (I was away when you must have submitted it) but this is definetily a cool space art, and I too for so long have been wanting to do a near-white space scene myself :XD:
