Quasar by tadp0l3 Quasar by tadp0l3
Well....

Haven't touched photoshop since march - been in an artistic slump. Had to do something....

:bulletblue: About
The subject is well portrayed before - a massive galaxy with a super-massive black hole in its center. The hole being invisible, all light vanishing from the great gravity. The quasar itself, among the brightest, most luminous objects in the universe, is being powered by an accretion disc around the black hole.

:bulletgreen: Resolutions
Original resolution: 6000x5000
Wallpaper: 1920x1200 widescreen

If you want other resolutions that can be arranged :)

I'm rusty as hell, and it feels! Critique and comments warmly welcomed. But please... be nice ;)

Also, thx to #spaceart for suggestions and critique

I think those energy rays of its axis should maybe reach further, beyond the borders of the image. It'd add to the dynamic of the piece, I think.

Can you create a 4800x900 Widescreen Version of this? I think it would look AMAZING on my Eyefinity display.

Eyefinity?

Anyways, that is one strange resolution. What I would do is crop it, possibly tilting it a bit. You'd loose a lot of the upper and lower parts of the imagine cropping it to that resolution though :/

Eyefinity, is when you run three displays off of one single GPU, I don't mind whatever you can do in your own time would be great!

I tend to agree with priteeboy about the relativisitc jets, and the stars are a little big (I do the same thing) but nitpicks aside, it's really a nice piece :)

Well I'm British, I have two years in college and I'm on my first year. 1st Year we do something called an AS level which is half of your A Level...Then you do your A level which is the remaining level. So Basically you inspired my College work for half my final grade....Thank you!

Ah, not too familiar with the British school system. Been thinkin' of writing my masters thesis in England, so might learn though ;)

And wow, I'm honored to have inspired you in such a way, gives me great pleasure and humbles me that I did :)
