Okay here goes. It's been too long. I've finished university at last.
I think the texture for this planet is ages old and i had the planet pasted in a canvas for quite some time too (maybe 2 years or something) but really didn't know what to make of it. So as inspiration randomly hits me i revisit old files and uncompleted pictures, which is actually the way quite a lot of my illustrations come into being. So I added the nebula and general lighting and style to this one last week and feel it can now stand for itself.
I actually wanted to post a different one here first before i put this up, but i think it still needs more work so there you go.
Hope you like it.
