This is a submission for the "TerraSpace" Community Contest here on dA.
Ive always wanted to do one of these but was never really good at it..I had tried several times back a few years ago and failed miserably....I still ended up spending about 7 hours on this and well, I'm satisfied with it enough to upload it. ....kinda.
The name came from thoughts of how long it takes light to travel to us from out there....the things we are seeing today happened millions of years ago...thats just amazing to me. Your in fact, traveling back in time.
Planets, inner stellar dust, stars, star clusters, nebula's, gas jets, auroras, comets....its in there.....Full view for greater details.
All Photoshop...very minimal brush use...177 layers ..36 groups. lol yeah I counted...this had to be my most layered piece to date.
One Stock photo used in this piece and it can be found here at stock exchange for the foreground terrain. [link]
I hope you enjoy this as much as I did re creating my own little piece of the universe.
