Galactic Horizon by BLPH Galactic Horizon by BLPH
And here we are, floating in this vast system. A tiny speck rendered insignificant by its surroundings. A part of a much larger entity, shrouding us in a veil of gas and dust. At night, we see its arms, stretching around us. From horizon to horizon. So far away, yet so near.


It's been a while again, so it is time to present something new! :D
This is a little thank-you for all the birthday-wishes. I hope you'll like it!

The idea behind this image is actually several years old (6, to be more precise). However, the attempt back then failed so miserably that I didn't even save it. Just recently, I dug out a collection of "ancient ideas" and tried myself on it again. Definitely turned out better than last time :p

That is also the reason why I offer this as a wallpaper-pack! Available sizes are:

:bulletblue: 16:9 — 1920x1080
:bulletblue: 16:10 — 1920x1200
:bulletblue: 4:3 — 1600x1200

Smaller monitor? No problem, just pick the wallpaper for your screen's aspect ratio. It should shrink down without any problems.

While you're reading all this, I'm on my internet-free vacations (yup, I'm totally abusing the "scheduled submit"-thing). Hence, please excuse a potentially long response-time. Naturally, I will read all comments you leave and answer them as well ;)

As usual, comments, favs, or even watches are greatly appreciated. A small click for you but a giant leap of motivation for me. Enjoy! :)

To be honest, I actually anticipated that time quite a bit. It's something to break out of the daily routine. It's certainly refreshing :D

Haha I think it would still drive me mad XD Since my phone has 3G, I'm able to access the Internet anywhere, so long as I have a signal... I went on holiday once where I had no signal and I've never been driven so mad! XD

Ah I couldn't survive without it! I'm an Internet addict XD One time, when I was living in halls at my first year of Uni, the network dropped and was off for 3 days! My housemates and I didn't know what to do! D:

This is (as always) beautiful, but it sort of falls in the mainstream of galactic paintings.  I hate to vent on such a great piece at all, but coming from you, a greater value of creativity is always expected, and of course shown. :D

Sometimes, I just have to do those generic spacescapes (or any other theme, for that matter). Don't know why, probably because it's more relaxing to swim in shallow waters than dive into the ocean ;)

Nevertheless, thank you so much for your opinion, I'll try to submit something more novel soon ;)
