Ancient Celestial Phoenixes - Exclusive Premade by somadjinn Ancient Celestial Phoenixes - Exclusive Premade by somadjinn
Mixed media photomanipulation combining an ancient public domain painting called Phoenixes by Paulownia Trees (circa 17th Century) with a couple space images. In the latter case, I would like to credit and thank ESA/Hubble, more specifically:
1) Star birth of galaxies: NASA, ESA, N. Smith (University of California, Berkeley), and The Hubble Heritage Team (STScI/AURA)
2) A rose made of galaxies: NASA, ESA, M. Robberto (Space Telescope Science Institute
ESA) and the Hubble Heritage Team (STScI/AURA)

Phew, that's all the credits out of the way! From sources I believe in good faith acceptable for stock use and premades, especially spacetelescope.org who are very generous with their space images :) I don't pretend to know much about ancient Asian art, except that I am trying to expand my horizons and genuinely appreciate their style & attention to detail. 

You can download the same image without watermark directly on my website for free stock photos: freestock.ca/mixed_media_vexel…

This picture is also available for download at 5000 x 2111 px for a small premium of 40 points. Most everything else including my stock rules remain the same, except this premium download gives you access to a much larger version of the picture without watermark.

This is really cool, Nick!

Hope all is well with you. You've been quiet. Haven't seen much activity from you on FB lately, either.

Thank you Casey :hug: I've been held up in Canada longer than expected. Sold my old condo last month but dealing with an abusive uncle... nothing physical, just chalk full of anger over trivial issues. Told him to stop and respect my space, but he still snoops around in my stuff while I'm out and lies about it. All this despite living in a house that my mother owns and he pays virtually no rent for, but still wants me to leave here as soon as possible. So I'm basically trying to set him straight, but it's been draining a lot of my creative energy. Hopefully be back in the US next week though :)

This is fantastic! I'm a great admirer of Japanese art, especially screens, and this looks like it's from a museum!

Thank you :) The more I look into it the more it reminds me of one of my all-time favourite illustrations called Le Chat Noir (The Black Cat). From a different part of the world, but I think what draws me into this kind of art is how much care they put into shapes & outlines to present a crystal clear image without overly complex details. Anyways don't mind me, I'm just thinking out loud! =p
