I am featuring with this post a pitiful rough drawing of my attempt to create a supernova similar to the photoshop spectacular also featured. If you see this post and after you stop laughing, please wish me luck.
I went ahead and reworked the Connecticut background. I just wasn't satisfied with the previous result. I believe this one is a little better. It has more dimension with light and shadow. I have some minor clean-up to do on it. It will be featured with my next post.
