This took quite a bit of time to paint. I work in large canvases, usually at 30x40 inches at 150 dpi, or 30x50 depending on how long the scene is. So yeah, it took a while to fill it all in. (well the majority at least)
Anyway not much really to explain about the piece. Its a far off nebula deep within space, and I kinda propped up a camera and took a shot.
