Eye for an Eye by TylerCreatesWorlds Eye for an Eye by TylerCreatesWorlds
Been wanting to make a nebulae like this for a while now. I think it looks pretty okay. Spent a lot of time on the shape of this bad boy. It's an eye, if you couldn't tell.

Painted in photoshop about 7 hours
No textures, fractals, or photos.

Fav, comment, and all that jazz

Very striking! A wonderful dance between blisteringly hot blues/whites to cooler oranges/reds. Incredibly fine detail throughout the piece with no visible lacking sectors anywhere. Truly wonderful and majestic piece.

Where to improve; After studying a photo of a real nebula (Helix Nebula) I noticed that the detail of the "debris" between the super nova and the space dust is being thrown away from the center in a very direct manner (imagine 1 point perspective lines). In your painting however, there are, in my opinion, too many wispy tails that seem to sway around too much that show it wasn't that strong an explosion (the blue sector). Another thing I noticed that although the very fine lines within the clouds add an incredible level of detail, some areas of the lines look very much like they were in fact drawn and not "formed in space". I would recommend running a smudge pass over these lines just to break up the perfect flow of them. It's a time consuming process but it makes the clouds look that much more fuller, fluffier and realistic. This is of course if your intended effect was to be super-realism. Otherwise, truly beautiful.

Not only this is an amazing work, but it is also exceptionally realistic. In fact, I just found it on a fb page, which gave credit to Hubble Space Telescope itself! And it fooled a lot of people, among which some collegue of mine, that is, students of astronomy! :D As I said, beautiful work.
