As the cosmos spun when the universes split at the same time the stars collided, the planets became one. And specifically one planet became whole in it's entirity. But not without sacrifice. 

A young being, powerful and mighty in his own way, circled through space by his lonesome until a massive light lifted his eyes toward it. This beast was Norman the bull. He was told by the light that a planet needed his existence in order to survive, but there may be some hardships along the way. Strangely enough,Norm politely excepted, and floated toward the light nearing the still newly formed planet, completely aware of what mechanical troubles layed before his children's children in the near future of other biengs.

Puzzled by the bull's easy decision making, the light asked why a decision like that would be so easy for him. Norm replied, " Because great light, loneliness can only make a being happy enough. I wish to see others like myself. And I know we will suffer, but for the most part our death, as crazy as it sounds, will be for the greater good and sacrifice for this new planet I will now call ours."

Norm felt the light's comfortable warmth, as he neared his new home. As he neared the planet, his wings began to slowly fall off. But he still didn't mind, because soon, he knew that others ,like himself, would soon be there to comfort him, and the word loneliness would soon be a word never used by his people ever again...

Sorry it's long. Took about three days on and off. I'm still trying other colors out to see if I can handle other palettes other than shades of purple. The story is made up, and so is the picture. Just random thoughts. So tell me what you think about the drawing or story: Love it or Hate it, I'm willing to listen...

Amazement. It looks very 3D-ish, and Norman's face is just...remarkable 5/5 + Fav.

Wow this is exceptional work. The circle shading worked really well.

Ummm... It's cool and is good, but it's just plain odd. WHAT'S WITH THE FREAKING BULL?!!!

 Extremely cool! That bull looks really sweet the story is fun to read and the scenery is great! To let the hand be better visble you could darken the shadows with some black (and since it's very close to the explosion the harsher shadows would make sense...).
Only praise from me here!

That's so coooool! The story is good too. I like the little bull, he's cute. :D

And to think you actually got down on yourself when you first came here.  You're leagues better than I am!  This is amazing.

Thanks for the comments everybody, really enjoy em'...By the way does everybody see that their is a giant hand in the mysterious cloud. Cause I asked some people what they saw in the picture, and they said an explosion and a bull. I guess I hid the giant hand well or something. I hope you guys can see it though...thanks again..
