I know it's riffing off a well-known zen story, but I thought that adding the whole gravity, movement, relativity thing was interesting. The background stars are done with a simple gradient dissolve in photoshop. . . which is sort of a hack. Maybe one day I'll make my own star field in my own style. One problem with throwing a gradient behind the drawing is I lose some of the detail of smaller objects. In this one, I really liked the ringed planet. It's spitting out random chunks of rocks or energy or just emoting in some weird way, but you can't see it with the backdrop.
