    An exercise in bump modes and layers.
    1. 100% AR3
    2. The "object" is built with glitter, blur blender, ink pen and eraser in several layers with "add" bump modes. The globe is Airbrush and blur blender with the circle stencil. The background a design with gloop pen turned into a sticker, and ink pen for glazing. No filters or other stencils.
    Hope you enjoy. Comments and commentary welcome.

    This spaceship(?) looks like it would have heavy physical weight if you were able to pick it up! Love the colors and organic textures on the ship, and particularly love the darker colors of the planet--just lovely modulations of colors there. And that background is cool as well.
    My otherworldling ( or is it really just me, getting to know my inner alien?) is asking me if he can get a ride home on this Starship you have constructed??

    Good Lord! This is amazing Byron and worth a lot of time to study! The crystal clear 3D effect blew me away when I initially saw this posted in the main gallery. There is some kind of magic pulling this whole piece together but I can't seem to put my finger on it! The colors add to the effect as well as the composition. This is like going one step further than Salvador Dali! Beautiful piece Byron. Wow!!!
