    This one is looking good! I like the glowing green cracks throughout the rocks and the addition of the ships is a great use of scale. Looks like it could be in the next Green Lantern movie!

      Thanks Eric! It’s definitely one of my most in depth tutorials and I was really happy with the outcome. You wouldn’t believe the number of lighting layers built up in this piece haha.
