Tethered Outpost by Deepblu742 Tethered Outpost by Deepblu742
Had this one cooking for ages. Hand painting the station was insane with more brushed nebula/gas than I've ever attempted. Hope it's not too much of a color-gasm, 3rd piece using space rocks maybe I'm developing an asteroid fetish. :)

True size: 8000x3600px

What I started with: The alien ship: [link] & the station: [link]

The impressive structure is Tobian's Pluto Space Station, a colossal beast of an undertaking...his renders are superb! [link]
Alien craft designed by Drew Pace [link]
Background ships are renders by Deg of John Eaves' Federation Sacagawea Scout Class and Ramscoope-Class Escort by Animaniac.
Once again props to Tsarye for [link] [link] [link]
Some asteroids courtesy of ChrisCold: [link]

Feel free to peep some closeups: [link] [link]

Thanks for looking...

Thank you! =) I was a bit uncertain if the colors too extreme or it the composition looked busy.
