A little system has since the dawn of times been drifting farther and farther away from its parent galaxy. Soon it will be completely desolate...
I made a few galaxies with a simple technique here, and I'm pretty pleased, since they essentially are my first ones. I'm starting to really appreciate the power of light factory, the only plugin I actually use in ps. Made a few pr3t3nd3r-inspired stars, which I think look pretty cool. I've been a little sluggish regarding the star field, might revisit that and improve it later.
(And that flare on the big planet, that's the peeking sun if such a concept would be hard to comprehend).
Original resolution: 9400^2 px.
EDIT: I finally did the improvements I promised in the comment section. Way better star field, better space dust, and updated the planets.
I also thank
for giving me my second DD on this picture!
EDIT (2010-12-21): Made som smaller changes.
