Planetary Nebula Stock Image by uxmal750ad Planetary Nebula Stock Image by uxmal750ad
This is the full version (6000 × 6000 px) of the planetary nebula I used as the background in my recent piece “Solar Requiem” see  fav.me/d6ulg7x

I’m offering this as a stock image for anyone who wishes to use it, but please respect my hours of work that went into producing this image and be sure to credit me.  If you do use this, please credit me, link back to this page, and if you can drop me a note, I’d love to see what you did!

This image was done entirely in Photoshop and painted using my set of custom PS brushes.  Planetary nebula consist of expanding shells of ionized gas ejected from the surface of old red giant stars late in their lives.  In this image the central star has already gone through its red giant stage and is now in the process of expelling its outer layers. What’s left behind is the immensely hot core of the original star (now a white dwarf) which emits intense UV radiation making the expanding gas glow brightly as a planetary emission nebula.

Conditions of use:
You can NOT use this image in any commissioned work or other commercial product without direct permission from me.
You CAN use this image in any deviations you want to make available as prints, provided they are only sold as deviant prints like most artists do here.
You MUST credit me and link back to either this or my main page from any deviation you use the image in.

This is incredible! Thank you for sharing it as free stock :D
Have you considered moving it into Stock & Resources to make it easier for deviants to find?

You’re very welcome; I hope you can make use of it!  As for what you had mentioned, I have this image posted in the resources section of about ten space art groups so I figured it’s going to be found by those who would be looking for such things.  A keyword search should find it as well.  I'm still looking around for more.  Thanks...
