Soooo kinda freaking out a little here. I've been messing around with space art for a while, but I've never really made anything cool. And then today I was a little fried from painting hard core last night, so I thought "I'll just relax and try some space art." And then this happened. . .

For my first space are attempt, I'm very happy with it. And I'm excited to hear what people think, so I wanted to post it right away.

Inspired by IC 1396 H-Alpha

I'm sure those of you who are into space art, might find a bunch of things wrong with this. And I would like to hear about it, so I can get better. Yes I know there are no planets. . . I'm not huge on them . . .

I'm not one that looks at space art much, but I love abstract art, so I've seen a ton of it. This is actually the first peice of Spae Art I've ever seen that I have actually made my wall paper before. I usually pass by it. I honestly see no flaws, but IMO, I'd like to see more open, black space. Too much BRIGHT COLORS for me. I loke my abstract art to be dark, with subtle strokes of color here and there.

Still an amazing piece that I absolutely love. Keep it up bro, you could go far.

Nondual responds:

Thanks a bunch, I'm glad you like it. Having empty space in my pieces is something I constantly contemplate. I kind of have a tendency to "trance out" and fill up the whole piece with detail. Something I'm definitely working on. That's really cool you put it as your wallpaper!
