Defiance by sumopiggy Defiance by sumopiggy
I had the day off work, and I had been browsing through dA last night getting all inspired, so figured what better a use of my day off work than to paint a new picture. And here it is :D Initially, I was inspired by =PlasmaX7's new work to try use a few textures and mix things up a bit, but I ended up just resorting back to brushing after a while. I'm really pleased with the outcome though.

And thanks to =Nameless-Designer, *SamODJ, ~powerpointer and ~d1git for their feedback while this was in it's WIP stages :D

See? dA subconsciously inspires people. It never ends.

Just by looking at the zoomed-out view of it, my breath was gone and eyes widened.

The way the colors transition out around the white is very well done, and adds to the coolness.

However, my only gripe is the white; there was a wavy-like design and then it's all blurred out by the bright white.

Overall, very well done. VERY well done.

Great colors. I like how each color is positioned, and unique to that area of the nebula.

Nice to see you working on your brushwork--I think it's been improving all the while. :D

I've been watching PlasmaX7 too, and he's also been improving of late as well.

Damn, now I'm gonna have to go make some nebulae. :O_o:

Thanks :D Yea they're the most fun bits to paint too, you cant really think about what you're doing or else they come out looking all stale, so you just gotta go mental and just brush random lines and squiggles :D Thanks for your comment!

:ahoy: Query: Is the nebula in your icon a real one, say the Trifid or one of the Pillars of Hercules, or is it a great little doodle?
Cheers! :abduction:

Thankies. Yea I noticed that when I was done too, but I think I remember making it really dark in that corner to isolate the nebula a bit. Just pretend it's star infested! Blissful naivety!
