This is Aphelion: Sky, part of a space series I'd like to do.
This is part of a larger project which includes spacecraft and a bright star, which is available here: [link]
...but this one has been colorized differently! I wanted to play with potential nebulae colours.
This piece is in 4K Ultra High Def (8.8 megapixels), and is 4096x2160.
--THIS IS BEST VIEWED AT FULL RESOLUTION--
The final file size of the .psd is 385 Mb, with a total of 303 layers (for larger project)
All work completed in Photoshop CS6 for Mac.
I would love some feedback, so please let me know where i can improve!
