Thanks a lot! I created a 3D model in Poser for reference. You could see more information about the process on my blog (link in the description). :)

This is a great work. She looks so impressive, darkened and contrasting with the background :D

(That's the great thing with nebulae! They look fabulous, and you can twist them to whatever arrangements you like.)

You're right, there's a slightly problematic spot in the folds. I hope I can fix it before the final release. Thanks anyhow!

Hi Eleni, usually on dA I look at something for a few seconds and then type a comment. Here, I looked for a good minute or two and then typed. There's a lot to behold. That background, the cosmos is a marvel to behold. The intriguing structures on the left add a lot of interest and mystery to the piece. And the character on the right looking off into the distance to her fate, her destiny, who knows? Wow, I'm impressed overall, you did great! :clap:
