The awesome Majesty and scale of the piece leaves us breathless with anticipation of the lives yet to be lived and the stories to be told before these truly collide. With all the tools we now have and will build We will witness this occurrence many times. Makes the imagination soar. Thank you for the new wings... ~Aes~
Well, it's not painted a dot by dot if that's what you are asking, lots of stars in this picture were made via a photoshop noise filter, but yeah - a big part of the picture is painted - the brush strokes are mainly visible in the lower left corner, where the galaxy is closest to the viewer.
