Hi, I'm new here. I have been stalking the gallery for awhile now though. 

I am currently teaching myself python/pygame and created a basic shoot 'em up style space shooter while following a tutorial. I wanted to make the basic game more "mine" by creating my own assets for it. 

This is the background so far. Any comments or crit is welcomed. I am trying to stick to a simple pallette in order to concentrate more on the design side of the art.

Simply beautiful work

Seconding the jaggies criticism, though it's a nitpick. Another nitpick: there are a couple of stars overlapping the biggest planet.

I'm a little worried the yellow might clash with the foreground, but it's hard to tell without knowing what it looks like. If the foreground is high-cintrast, it should be fine. As a stand-alone piece, I think it looks good! I particularly like the dense swirl of stars in the middle, it really helps it look like a proper starfield and not something artificial.

Well done, I've always loved black shading on planets. If I had to give criticism it would probably be the jaggies on the planets. But other than that it's very nicely made.
