Aaand done! Did some colour editing after the stream (which by the way ended quite randomly, sorry about that! My computer and both screens froze really bad, I couldn't do anything for about 10 minutes :< worst lag I've ever had.)
Inspiration for this picture came from the helix nebula en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Helix_Ne…
, and the way it looks like. I wanted to make a space-themed painting again and I think a roaring big cat or a tiger in this case would fit the picture.
I think the Eye shape of the nebula looks at the same time a bit creepy but really captivating and interesting too..
Not too much to say about this one, it was just one of those pictures where I get the inspiration and start painting straight away and pretty much can't stop until it's done. Started it last night and almost didn't want to go to sleep because of it! But it's a nice and a bit nostalgic feeling, used to be this inspired all the time years ago with everything I did. Not saying I'm not excited or inspired to paint anymore, but it's just really like... really great joy of creating that in a way feels quite overwhelming
but not in a bad way ofc.
Ok enough rambling! Hope you like it
it might look really blue on some screens but it's meant to have a some greens, reds, oranges and purple colours too. Looks correct on my other monitor but my laptop screen makes it really blue.
(EDIT: made it a bit brighter)
And I noticed this picture works better when viewed full size so please click to see the full thing if you see it smaller!
Also most likely making this another extra print for Tracon too now that I got it done already.
(...ahhaha didn't know there's a Space art-category!)
