I have wanted to paint an image based on the formation of a solar system for quite some time but I was having artist block coming up with a composition so one day a while back I was looking at one of my moon shots and the image for my painting popped into my head, this is the result. I even used my moon shot as a base to paint over for the planet in the FG. The moon base was shot with my SPC900NC webcam as a mosaic with my CGEM-800 set up and the rest is painted in CS5 with over 400 layers using my Wacom Tablet.
