Cover Art - Tales of Daavas

I was commissioned to do cover art for DarthSithari for his story, Tales of Daavas: Heroes' Dawn (a link to the story will be posted later). It was very interesting painting a spacescape for the first time! I had the most fun with the nebulas and stars in the background, which are mostly covered up by the planetary shards scattered around the core. The sphere tool came in very handy for these things; I was even able to map a stone texture around a globe for the planet, then take it apart and shade each piece individually. All done in GIMP, took around 4-5 hours' time over the past week. I think I like how it turned out. c:
