End Of The Line by Nuukeer End Of The Line by Nuukeer
Made another nova. The shockwave hasn't even reached the farthest away planet, which is too small to be seen on this low res image, as it was only a few pixels wide. The bipolar outflows from the star are gamma bursts, which pierce the main shock front.
I think this one is a little better than the first one I made, reminds me a lot of star trek generations if you have seen the nova in that film.

Original size is 16 times bigger than this. 6144^2

this should be a kind of hypernova if there's two bipolar jets :)

Beautiful. I love how the title forecasts the doom coming to the planets of this star. It requires you to know whats happening in the picture.

I had a quick question! I've been toying with the idea of re-creating the scene from Generations where the Amargosa star explodes, and I was just curious what tools you used to create the explosion in your picture?

I'd be sure to link back to you to give you credit.

I layer many fractals which I have made in Apophysis, then I spherize them and add a layer mask so that only the edges will be visible. :)
