Default Space - Bussard ramjet and nebula

Another nebula from Ali, this time with one of my models, a Bussard ramjet, in silhoutte

First pass, long way to go.

I really like it with the exhaust added. I also really like the portrait orientation but it doesn't work as well with my monitor.

Thanks Both!

Now adding some small lights on the ship.

I know what you mean about portrait orientation, though I'm happier now I put wallaper on my phone!

I would consider another nebula. This one is really busy and the nice model kind of disappears in front of it.

I wanted one with extended bright areas, so you could see the magnetic funnel web in sillouette,,, That kind of limited the options! But thanks for the feedback.

Here's what may be the final versions.

Google for Eve online nebulas. I found all of the textures somewhere online, but can't find the link right now. But they are much better for this kind of stuff.
Something like this:
