Geoff mentioned that he was worried Ion Storm and Molecular Cloud may be too hard to tell apart. Alternative molecular cloud version below. (Ion storm is final imho).

The dots in the nebula, are they supposed to be stars or something?
If they could be removed, that would help differentiating it and ion storm. Also, make the bluish tones in the middle green or orange or something not blue?

Alternative version for ion storm, more lighning-y.
True, and also stunning, but the "red" version looks more scary. It's really hard to say which to prefer... ;)

The last image ion_storm8.png looks magnificient!!! like most phenomenon out there looks stunning even when they are all dangerous at close quarters...(except black holes :D)
I would love to have that nebula even if it doesnt look dangerous. To make it alarming, my bet is that notifying that its approaching in the Image info panel is enough. Just a noobs opinion. :P

Thanks guys! Started over on the molecular cloud, here's what I got so far - I think the stars aren't there yet, and the dark areas are still somewhat boring.

nopes! the dark areas arent boring !! not everything has to be all sparkly and shiny..
plus: theres a face in the cloud that wants to gulp down all planets it gets. Try to find it! that face makes it look more scary XD

Adrian, good to see you around. Love your ship art!

Here's my current work on star forming nebulae, working on accretion disk as well but it's not there yet.
