Just your standard nebula painting. Spent a lot of time working on the stars, a whole lot of flares in there. I really like the colors I got out of this.

Photoshop about 10 hours
No textures, no fractals, or photos

At first when coming across this piece, I had honestly thought that you had taken a picture from the Hubble space telescope gallery, but looking closer I see a beautiful piece of work that has been painted wonderfully and though it has taken a long time to make, I can see that it was worth every second.

The colours blend together amazingly well, every shadow and shape in this picture has been painted with so much care and the stars and background nebula really add mystery to all.

I really hope others enjoy this as much as I do because
overall, this is my most favourite picture on deviantArt.

My first comment is just.... Wow. Your picture is truly amazing. It took me some time to stop looking at it. I mean, what a gorgeous piece! Your vision got five stars because of how open the view and understanding of the space. It's absolutely amazing how the depth of the picture copes with every last touch, from the background to the little purple sparkles. Believe me, I know nothing about space, but for a long while I had the greatest interest in nebulas. Let me tell you, when I saw this picture, I thought it was a photograph. Seriously, NASA should see this! Your originality was a little bit difficult to rate, because nebulas happen naturally, meaning it wasn't your idea. I decided to give you five stars instead of four and a half bcause of your choice of color. Your title depicted the shades perfectly. Your work is absolutely fabulous! Your technique, man, I wnted to rate it beyond five stars! I don't know how you created that work of art. I couldn't imagine sitting there and doing every brush stroke. It's like a mystery and work of art all in one! My comment on your impact rating is the same one as your technique. I wanted to rate it like 10 stars! I just LOVE the calm, beautiful element you put into this masterpiece. I also like that you didn't make the background black. It really makes the color pop. I also think the little bursts of purple bring a lot of originality. Over all, your picture is 6/5 stars. Grwat work, and never stop creating art!

I really enjoy the contrast of colors on this one, the green nebula gas clouds with the purple stars dotting space. It's beautiful.

Most authentic looking artist impression of a nebula I've see in a while. You should be working for NASA or something :) (Maybe you are? :P
I get so annoyed when I'm reading whole article about something and then the image included is just a crappy mush of smudged fractals and pasted stars.

This, on the other hand, is really well done. I stare at nebulae for the most part of my days and had to look real hard to see that it'snot a photo.Color me impressed.

Alright fine, but I gotta drive. It's not some macho thing it's just how I get down.

Gas is on you though, that shits hella expensive.
