RE: The two PNGs
In my view these two PNGs resemble very much black holes (at least the deformation in the
space and the gravitation suggests so), and a black hole means information paradox
'hanging' in science unresolved, and the information paradox means high
possibility of losing information in time and space (nothing is at it looks like and as we
know it) - and I am not quite sure that this is an appropriate message for an Ad of an
RE: Keeping it more simple
Of course keeping it more simple is much better. (see the example attached herewith).

Okay, I really re-worked this puppy:
- It's a lot more abstract. I pulled the rockets.
- I used spiro splines to make the rocket trails
- I did a lot of gimping to texturize and glow the wallpaper.
Some inspiration I drew from:
The concept behind this, is there's 3 different rockets that have flown
in swirls and they're meeting together out in the distance of space.
What do you think? I know it's dark but... it is space-y :)
More reworking - it's a bit more swirly / the rockets come together at a
more distinct point. Before they were about to come together but not
I have a blue and a multi-color-neon-kinda version as well:
