i couldn't resist finishing this one off after all, and seeing 4 lessons where cancelled at uni today, i had a little extra time. i probably should have spent it working on my projects, but it had to be done
Anyway I have been working on this one for quite some time, never getting to a satisfactory result. I think i started around febuary.
Nebula is partly painted partly texture work. Extensive work on the planet textures. i see possible improvement there though (i hope).
Other than usually i worked in reverse for this piece. i started with the background, then went on to the smaller of the two giants, then added the bigger one (which went through various stages, but in the end this is pretty close to the first version of it). The Nebula/Stardust/Cloud was last if you don't count smaller details.
I may upload multiple versions of this, as some are very different from others, but this is the "official" final result.
Thx for viewing. Hope you like it.
