if only 1% of those 1,000,000,000,000 stars had a planet,that would mean that 10 billion planets would be in that galaxy.10 billion planets AT LEAST in just one galaxy but people still believe that just earth has life.

Really liking the tones of glare coming from the closet star to the left, did you use the airbrush tools to do this?

Thanks! I really like how it turned out myself. It's cool how both of my recent galaxy submissions have a very similar style. I'm actually in the process of reworking some of my stars. I don't like the look of Rigel very much. Expect an update sometime in the future.

I would enjoy seeing you remake the star behind the Illusive Man in Mass Effect, if you happen to know about it : P
