this is my latest render. It took me more time than I first intended, but I am satisfied with the result. The image shows an planet/star inspired by a pulsar with a sci-fi-ish color mix. I hope that you like the result.
I am open for critique so please tell me what I can do better. I am still new to rendering because I focused on hard surface modeling before.Thanks.
