Celestial Vault by Cosmic-Cuttlefish Celestial Vault by Cosmic-Cuttlefish
It's been a while since my last upload... I've had a bit of an art block lately, but I have a couple of new ideas now, so you should be seeing more from me. This one is partly inspired by a description in Book 6 of Virgil's Aeneid, where he describes Atlas carrying the vault of the heavens, 'inset with gleaming stars'.

I think I'm gradually starting to understand how Xaos works... I've never really used it before, but it was quite useful here.

A brief tutorial on stars is on its way, eventually. :star:

Made with Apophysis 2.09.

Thanks a lot for the feedback! I always like to hear what people think when they look at my work. As for the blue part, I had to look up what cloisonné is, but I can see what you mean!

cool!
this is pretty off topic, but cloisonne is what i think of when i see these, and they're so fabulous, i thought you might enjoy seeing/reading about them.

I think this is absolutely beautiful. I would love to be able to use this piece with some of my stuff. I'm in a small fire performance group called Circus Centripetus and I think this would look great integrated with some of our propaganda.
