Image Description, by

This is a shot of a skybox I've been working on. I call it the Mandel Nebula. I generated an section of the mandelbrot fractal, messed with the colors, skewed it to be a bit more spherical, mapped it to the box, added some stars, added the sun, and then some blue tendrils into the areas of space where there were only stars. Overall about 5 hours of work(which included some failed attempts). The software I used to do this was fractint 19.6 for the fractal and Paint Shop Pro 5.0 and SkyPaint for the image editing. The image is warped in this shot a little due to a higher than normal FOV so you can see a bigger piece of the sky. Enjoy!

Guess coders can do art. =)
