Celestial Origin by cosmicbound Celestial Origin by cosmicbound
The universe is full of celestial havens - stars, planets, gases & material collaborate in a dance of colour as light & life is created - but what if there where such a place capable of producing all in the universe & more? In essence, an origin - perhaps the universe formed in a much different way, while it may have been triggered by a super massive singularity caving in on itself, the result may have been a single, shining star, unlike the form of any other; the Celestial origin.

-

My submission to the Exotika II contest, I'm really happy with the result of the picture, I tried to bring an interesting perspective to the piece with the nebulae - as well as bringing in the focal point as a unique star, the idea is that the star is surrounded by a shell of materials, the strong gravity of the star causes these materials to almost solidify into matter - yet instead they are in a fragile balance of pure energy, with constant matter exhuming from its peculiar circumstances. The concept is that there is only one star like this in the universe. (Note: Fictional concept devised by myself, not real :P)

All feedback appreciated. :)

Absolutely gorgeous! The light around that one star is like a gravitational pull, reeling my eyes deeper and deeper into that magnificent glow. But there are goodies everywhere to be seen if you just look deeper. Like the subtle but beautiful matter around the star in space and gasses. I love this image so much.

I just notice that you are very good with brushes and sunburst. Those stars look very attractive, like a dream, a fantasy dream. :+fav:

wow those clouds are brilliant and so tastefully done, I think its a bit inconsistant to have such an extreme lighting effect with the planets alone side that.

I love the light source and the planet. Both are stunning. But the large cloud being as prominent as it is, really throughs off the comp and balance. Other than that I think it's beautiful.

I'm a bit twisted here, I think there's way to much clashing here together in styles for me to see any rythm or flow, sorry dude. You can't nail 'em all ^^.
