Solar Plexus by cosmicbound Solar Plexus by cosmicbound
Some planets live a terrible, magnificent yet strange life. The planet Anzdaus IV is one such planet, its atmosphere constantly pummelled by solar storms, asteroids, & other whatnot. Although frightening, it is truly veiled in beauty, the surrounding solar activity sprouting nebulous havens, the sun that causes all this havoc, is Ipizn, an extremely large sun indeed, but with the ability to give infinite life to the stars surrounding it. Its surprising Anzdaus IV hasnt been withered & melted into a liquid planet from the immense heat of Ipizn, Anzdaus IV's atmosphere is extremely thick, & the solar winds, while attacking its atmosphere, at the same time, strengthen it everytime.

Finally! its here! after a week of constant work on this piece, this picture represents change, that i will change by spending more time on pictures :)

I hope you enjoy this is as much as i enjoyed making it, & your feedback is appreciated :)

beautiful fade from red to blue, although it seems a bit unbalanced in favor of the red...?
