The Warp Nova is a star that appeared to go supernova, but was stopped in a temporal bubble mid-explosion. There are theories as to how this happened, the most popular of which states that an advanced civilization attempted to stop their sun from destroying the system. No matter what happened, anybody who has visited one of the five surrounding planets or its moons can tell you that the novasets are some of the most brilliant displays of color in the galaxy.
This was a personal challenge to me. I wanted to see if I could take all of the knowledge and experience of making spacey artstuffs and mix it... and also come up with something that looked good. To be honest, I think I mostly succeeded. I'm really quite happy with the way this one came out, even though I have a version of Terragen which only allows me to make renders of a certain width. Nonetheless, I'm really quite satisfied, and I hope you all like it as much as I had fun with it.
