This is the last of my nebulae experiments. Iím finally at a level that I can say, ďThatís good for now.Ē The title is supposed to imply that and not that it's the best out there, far from it. I used techniques that I felt worked with my other experiments and junked others that just didnít suit this application. Iím not saying that I will no longer work on this subject but not right now. If you have any suggestions on how to improve it definitely let me know. As always your comments are greatly appreciated.

nah, you give me too much praise, my friend. i didn't do much other than paint in some color with a textured brush, then messed with the contrast. it was all very random. i was quite satisfied with the outcome, though. it seems that the ones i work on less come out better.

I'm a bit of a johnny-come-lately here, so I don't really have much to add for comments on this piece. I find it brilliantly rendered and devastatingly stark and intense. I don't recall if anyone mentioned how much personification you seemed to put into this work. The bottom left portion where the bright contrast is seems to make a silouette of either a distinctive bird of prey, or dragon jaw... or the thrusting of a right hand into white fire (in that portion where it looks like the bottom part of a beak... it also has the look of a thumb jutting from a hand with the fingers clenched closely above)

All very inspiring, and brings out many good emotions when I look at it. I'm sorry to hear that you won't be doing Nebula work for a while, but you're right... you've really nailed it more than once and I would love to see you work on something new.

Look forward to seeing what you have in store next ;)

That is amazing and beautifully done. I absolutely love the colouring. And the flow of this image is excellent, the way that the bright draws your eyes across the dark... Quite well done. This is a dev well done. Good job.
