Man, I love what you did with pointilism here. I know it isn't ALL pointilism, but I don't know how else to put it. Beautiful stuff!

Nobody beats you at deep space scenery, m'boy! 0_0

Bow shock? Heck, I hope it locates some cosmic neighbors! (Friendly, of course.)

Glad you like it! Hr, the secret is the airbrush tool in GIMP, manually set at a large scatter size (the slider only goes up to 5, but you can type in numbers all the way up to 50, which gets into good ranges for nice scattered star looks).
