I see an silhouette of a man up top, just beside the first comet, in the center of the picture, are it's legs.

All in all this illustration is kick-ass! :)

Your art is epic... but then again I've always been a sucker for spacescapes. :aww:
Especially love how planets look.

...
One thing though - I can't fully load this image from DA. Any other place to check it out?

How beautiful. The little details are all such nice touches, such as the small little spaceship and each tiny rock floating around.

Oh, I love this. It's been faved for a few days now, but let me try and put into words...

The best thing in my opinion are the clouds around the lightning bolt. They seem to surround the bolt, but they don't extend into space. That's really cool, it gives this "multi-dimensional" feel where some things are there but at the same time aren't.

The space ship in the lower right is a really nice detail. It helps to have some sharpness and contrast to support the illusion of huge scale.

The glistening asteroid debris is awesome, it looks like polished obsidian, I love it.

The planets themselves are very nice. How did you do them? I need such planets for myself - building a galactic empire ;).

And then there's the awesome level of detail of the starfield in the background. How did you do that? You can't have painted every star by hand ... or did you?

Man, this is awesomess in its purest form. :+fav:
