Whew - my first upload in ages! It's been quite busy this year, so I've had very little time to do personal artwork.

This image started as a rough 3D model (created in Lightwave) and I more or less painted over the whole thing by the time I was finished with it.

The planet - orbiting an orphan star adrift in the intergalactic void - is named in honor of a friend and fellow artist. :)

I used some Hubble images as the basis for the distant galaxies:

One might say that for a "remote outpost" to be on such a grand scale... the human economy has expanded considerably from the humble levels seen in the world today! :D

"Steve Burg"

"Steve Burg"?

Hm. That name sounds so familiar....

;p

Welcome back, bud! You just popping by or are you hoping to stick around a while?
Cool work - something like a cross between a pair of pyramids, a pair of volcanoes, and Tyrell Towers.
