FINALLY got myself a pen tablet. Wacom Intuos 2 6x8 inch.
Been exploring all the software, MyPaint in particular. Just playing with all the settings, and how they react to various pen input. Decided it was time time really try to 'make' something.
The focus of this exercise was the nebula itself. The stars got very little attention, and clearly could have used more.
anyhow, here it is :D

Nice! What is the actual size of the image, and have you thought of doing it as wallpaper?

Wow! Responses .. I haven't been here in quite awhile. Sorry.
Thanks much everyone! I appreciate it. =D
@mak17 - no, I hadn't named it. I like Red Eye Nebula tho, so there it is!
@Mike Casey - I forget the actual size off the top of my head. I'd be happy to put it up in wallpaper size(s). Say 1280x1024 or so. .. I'll hafta boot to Linux tho so I can access the file. In Win 7 right now, and it can't touch my Linux drive LOL
