So here is my rendition of a space battle. I had a base photo of a planet then I just added images frp, google & Pinterest of stock photos of the ships I wanted to showcase. I rendered all the explosions turbines, explosions and laser fire just with some layered paint brushes then dodged and burned what I could to make it a what I think is a solid composite. There are 40 layers total

This is a work entitled Space Wors. The artist would like you direct your attention to the evocative usage of color contrasted with the negative space, which forces the viewer to juxtapose their role in the master / slave dialectic of artist and viewer with their own expression of mortality. One may also detect subtle notes of elderberry, if their palate is well developed.
