Artist's Description

This is the first time I have incorporated a true image (not my own) into my artwork. A bit of an experiment I have downloaded an image of the Orion Nebula from the HubbleSite, these are not copyright and may be used by the public in any form as long as credit is given to N.A.S.A, which I have done…

It is the Orion Nebula as I said with my own interpretations added to create a fantasy space image. Not as clever as making it myself I couldn’t resist this wonderful image of the Nebula as I was browsing them, there is much on here that doesn’t belong and if you compare it to the original you will notice the many changes but here (hopefully) seamlessly become part of reality…

The Orion Nebula can be found in the constellation of Orion and you can see most of the stars that make up The Hunter…Orion is hunting the Bull, Taurus as he charges headforth into Orion as the constellations make their way around the night sky.

More than anything I wanted to show you the magnificent Orion Nebula, as caught by the Hubble Telescope, my editing is just a good excuse for me to put it on Red Bubble so you can all see it!
