A new work from Brent himself, and a welcome sight indeed. The depth is especially notable with the spectacular ray work (with the associated intensity of light) and the spectres of nebulous gas floating amidst further cavernous forms of nebulae with all their sense of scale, which is particularly impressive, and probably constitutes the key to this piece's profundity. The selectively sparse and minimal starfield is also well implemented and taken as a whole, adds to the composition, which itself is quite fair when considering the use of depth which allowed for the dual focal points to be implemented so well. If there is anything here which attracts my criticism, it can only be something as subtle as the mote of gas touching the planet to the left (the reflection of the star, by the way, is a nice touch), or the relative flatness of the purple-toned nebulae bottom right (or at least, its less developed form). Overall very nice though, at first it can give the impression of being a rather generic scene, but the subtlety of details and the actual work put into the depth and composition of it really shows with a bit of attention, making it more fulfulling than most pictures which would instantly grab the attention; well done.
