photoshop 7.0, mouse, a work still in progress.
I have been taking my sweet time with this one. Its been sitting unfinished for the last several months.
I have much highlighting and coloring to finish before I get anywhere near being done.
Usually I make space paintings from imagination, but lately, I've been looking at real space photography as a source of inspiration and guidance. Much of the shape of the dark nebulous cloud was inspired by the Eagle Nebula (I think).
