Deerborn by ErikShoemaker Deerborn by ErikShoemaker
Another animal shaped nebula, this time in a more realistic style though. Now that I've finally overcome the trial-an-error-phase I might create a third version with a more dynamic perspective which enables me to add maximum depth- as for that matter I'm not very satisfied yet.

It's fairly inspired by the nebulae in the skyrim skill screens and I tried to paint it in the style of the eagle nebula, with less success lol.

Thanks for full view!

I think this might be my favorite piece from your gallery...and not because it is inspired by my favorite game. ;) (Wink) The coloring is magnificent!

At first I thought it was Beerus (Dragonball) in a sideview, with a cape and he is blocking something with his left arm. lol

I made a set of stars for myself a long time ago and keep using them in every artwork. There are plenty of tutorials around her for that. :) Besides that I like using the cloud brushes by Dan Luvisi My Brush Pack.
