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!

Hi, I was looking to use this as a wallpaper but it seems the highest resolution I can find is 1920x1080. I would ask if there is a higher resolution available - if possible - in order to consider use on a dual-monitor setup. Thanks!

Just clicked on Darren Cowley's board on pinterest.  There are other star trek pieces there using this as a background, with links to other sites.   I left a comment on one saying the background was done by you.

Hunt for spaceships on pinterest and you will find your art cropping up as backgrounds.

Seen what appears to be this piece being used as a background for the Enterprise-D on pinterest.  Below is a link to Cygnus-X.net.  I clicked on it, and it goes to a set of Enterprise-D schematics, but with no sign of the art.  
I've just gone back to pinterest and cannot find the pic.  The only clue is that it was under Russian lettering.

Also saw same pice but with USS Voyager on it with Darren Cowley's name under it.  You click on it and you go to his board.

I thought I'd let you know in case it's being used without your consent.

Hi Tyler, I would like to apologise to you because I have been alerted that something I created was actually created with a stolen image from you. I got the stock pack from here to create that artwork Galaxy Texture Pack by ResourcesPhotoshop1
and sincerely apologise. I am removing the image from my page now due to www.behance.net/StefanHuerlema… 's pointing out that this image has been stolen from you. Once again, my humblest apologies.

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?
