Nebula by AbelPhee Nebula by AbelPhee
The final version of fav.me/d37g9i8

I'm actually really happy with this. The nebula clouds were a huge pain to do, but I like the final result. I didn't have any plan for this, so a lot of it was just me making up details as I went along.

Originally he was suppose to be eating/creating a planet, but I couldn't get the composition to work.

Space monsters don't even need walking limbs or flesh that isn't electrified gas (the alternative: the nebula found the bones floating around and inhabited them so it could interact with meaty creatures)

Thanks! Uhhh...it wasn't anything super special. Mostly just layering different soft brushes, with a few overlayed on top to add the 'sparkle' effect. It was a lot of experimentation ^^;

I always go back to look at this piece just because it is so amazing and full of details. I adore how the wings fade out into the background. How did you even get this effect for the wings. Was it transparency and blurring. I can see this monster eating a puny little planet a little away from its mouth.

Thanks! It took a lot of experimenting, but yeah it was just blurry brushes and layering. Originally it was going to eat a planet but it wasn't working in the comp so I took it out.

hmm, think it would have been better if you made the bones more ghostly. Then it would have looked as if you found a real nebula and outlined the dragon in it.

This is a beautiful peice of art, with or without the planet.
There is such extreme detail and amazing feel to this picture.
It truly looks like a skeletal dragon is flying through space.
The colors coming off of its wings and tail are so amazing and detailed, they look like stars (:
I love this. Amazing job

Planet eating or not, this is a fantastic piece. I love the flow of this piece, love the subtle gaseous colours of it's form. And the jaggedy teeth. XD

Really, a superb picture. <3
