I am very impressed. This, right here, is what space art is supposed to do for me; inspire by capturing the quintessential beauty and insignificance of what it means to exist in this vast universe.
I hate to critique such a beautful piece, but there's just one thing I'd like to point out - the use of the liquify tool (taking a big step out here in assuming you used it, but it does look most similar to the effects generated by this tool) creates a sort of 'plastic' effect on the nebula, which in some areas lends texture and structure, but in other areas (such as the sides and top) tkaes away from the piece.
tnx man, i appreciate it. You are right about that plastic feeling in some area's, i'll have to work on it in nex pieces. I did use the liquify tool, never really used it before on a scale this large but it worked nicely. I just need to develop it some more. tnx again
i disagree, the shuttle gives the picture meaning, "the endless search for love, i think the shuttle needs to stay in order to give the picture depth as far as meaning, its almost like a visual poem. same with the sence of vastness
