hello, this nebula in particular is quite eye-catching and compositionally impactful!! I can't stop looking at it for inspiration sometimes, you captured the volume and depth very well. I am curious what techniques you were practicing with? Basically just trying to see if there is a particular favorite method you have that maybe you'd like to share?
I feel honored that you feel that way about my artwork!
Yes I have a method that I use mostly to come up with this kind of nebulas. I use a big mix of costume fractal renders, that I can use in brushes and texture layers in a photoshop composition. I use this method both for photo-realistic or more artistic nebulas. This one however was made in such inspiration, that i was never able to recreate this feeling again in another nebula, and turned out to be one of my favorites
That's very nice! fractals can look a bit too sharp and "fractally" for nebulae, but this one is as sharp as you could get without reaching that problem, forming similar effects to those seen in the Crab Nebula
