This is phenomenal and whimsical. I don't know Photoshop that well so I can't fairly say anything about your technique. The color choice is interesting, I think of the ocean instead of space until I see the red giants dotting the lower left corner. This piece makes me feel so small but at the same time I feel like I could reach our and disperse the nebula like mist with a wave of my hand. The transition between the darkest corner bottom left could transition a bit more subtly into the light of the nebula. Unless that is how such space formations are for I have little knowledge on the subject and possibly no say in how the light ought to transition into darkness.
What do you think?

First off, this piece certainly deserves the DD. The overall composition works great, the focus being about 1/3 from the right, and the colours are calm and serene. The stars look great, with realistic colours and a nice, not too random spread that still doesn't look deliberate. The nebula cloud itself looks awesome, the shape looks really natural and stands out well.

My only criticisms would be that the stars' visibility is not affected by the cloud, giving the impression that all the stars exist in a flat pane in front of the cloud. I would reduce the brightness of some stars where the nebula is, to give the impression that they're shining through a dense cloud of dust. This would perhaps improve the depth of the piece. Also, while the nebula cloud looks great, there isn't much going on around it, and I think some subtle variations of tone and colour (like in the bottom left, which looks great) would improve the piece. Using more purple-brown tones in the shadows of the nebula cloud might look good.

Overall though a stunning piece and definitely my new wallpaper. The technical skill and unity of composition really stood out for me, I would love to know if this nebula was 100% hand-painted or if some sort of fractal program was used as a base. Either way this piece is stunning. Awesome work!

Hey, love this piece of work and many of your others! I can see you are a very skilled artist and was wondering whether i could use some of your work on my blog which i will be setting up in the near future. I would credit you for every piece I use and post a link to your profile at the end of every one of my posts that use one of your images. Thanks in advance. Wissam Whayeb

Hi, I purchased "The Ghost Nebula" from Tyler in 2012 for use with my website. Because I want my site to have a unique look, I generally don't allow other sites to use it. This also goes for "Emerald" and "Fire In the Skies." Thanks.

It is very elegant, and restrained. A lot of people would have thrown in a few celestial bodies to fill the space, and it looks better without.

Are you a professional?

Hi Tyler, I'm Carlos Viloria I'm the owner of originalmockups.com and I'm creating a set of resources for graphic designers, I've seen your work and I must congratulate you, is really fascinating especially this work which I have found that fits perfectly to the concept I want to show.

There is a sample of how I'm using your work and I really hope there is no problem in using them. I'll put your credits on the page.

Please, let me know if there is any problem with this.

Yeah. I actually sent quite a few DCMAs to sites using this work since I bought it. But in the end, there were so many of them that I had to reformulate my strategy. Now, as long as it has the StarArmy.com copyright notice visible and is not a competing website, I'll just let it be. My rationale is that it's sort of like free advertising for my RPG site. I only go after them if they remove the copyright off or if they're using it as a web design asset (since I want to keep my site's look unique). Tyler's work is fantastic and every time I visit my website it makes me happy just looking at it. I hope to buy more/commission more in the future.
