Asteroids are normally thinly scattered across space, heavily cratered bodies not at all difficult to navigate. The treacherous, densely packed “asteroid belt” is a myth perpetuated by popular science fiction. But, having said that…

A rocky planet, cast astray already by gravitational vagaries, was caught up in a complicated triple star system. Torn between a red and a blue sun, the rubble alternately molten and frozen only a few short years ago, the remnants haven’t spread out fully yet. Now she’s just being cocky, going in there.

Oh to heck with it, just enjoy!

Please note that this image looks significantly darker when printed.

Spacegirl and rocks rendered in Poser. No Bryce here, just The GIMP. Starfield created from muliple layers, hurl and pick noise functions, gradient fill. Masking, dissolve, blur used.
