Okay heres what I got for this space scene I am tryin to make. Any tips on how I could make it look better would be awesome. Thanks guys.

a planet or two, all the stars seem to be about the same intensity make some more prominent and some more distant to create better depth. Maybe a comet or two, space junk (asteroids debri, space hulk of a ship) how about a space station or space ship
Hope that helps.

The picture's a nice start, but it lacks highlights. Some brighter stars here and there. And perhaps other colours? This standard-yellow nebular looks somewhat boring... how about blue or lila or at least some orange :)

okay cool. Do you think a blue nebula should replace the yellow? I had a blue one initially but I ended up changing it to yellow.

I'm not sure... perhaps I'd just mix some blue and some yellow...

I agree with Syster Ky, but maybe a mix of more colors, like blue/purple and yellow/orange/red. some colored stars (or far distant planets).

okay cool Thanks for the help guys! I'll be adding an asteroid or something flying through. Cause this will all be animated. See what you think of this new nebula. Thanks again.

looks much better. btw you forgot to say what software/tool you are using.

oh! I'm sorry. I am using lightwave for the stars and animation and photoshop for the nebula drawing.
