Hi Kamikaye and NG-folks,
I love this picture!!!
Someting I like is the flare, what I like about it is (especially) the many layers it contains, wich is also one of the things I adore about the picture, the creation of layers.
Something you could change for the better (in my opinion) is the empty spaces between the tentacles of star-clouds.
It is almost as if everything is focused around there and, maybe, its an idea to throw in some extra stardust between those "outskirts" of starclouds!
Another really good thing is the shadowing of the planet and the stardclouds in both of the corners.
I love your drawings and will continue so!!!
Rock on Kamikaye.
