Also, the light is way too blinding unless that's what you were going for, even so there are some dark spots too close to the blinding light that make it seem out of place, and I think a light that strong definitely needs to take up more of the planet and the surroundings instead of ending so quickly. If you were actually going for realism then the colours themselves are fine, but if you were going for flow then you need to work on the colours matching because they really don't. This is probably because of the fact that the light ends so quickly, however, even with that their should be so much more colour and cloud variety considering its a universal image. The stars in the bottom are also protrude too much and ruin the depth with the light as it appears that the stars are actually on top, just try and dim those out.

Well I haven't made something in aggeessss, too preoccupied doing other stuff. But steins;gate pretty much became one of my favourite animes, and I thought, why not experiment with the surrealism in the anime and try and create that in a tag, so this was a huge experiment, I do think I'll probably tweak the colours a tad more.

Your tag looks great! The blur on the upper right-hand corner doesn't look right, and the blur and smudges on the left seem a little over-smudged. You might want to take the smudging down a small notch and the tag will look perfect!

I didn't use Cinema 4D for my supernova image, I used Photoshop CS5.1 only. Everything in the image is from scratch except from a few custom brushes from the internet and a fractal flower stock image I used for the planet's texture. Everything else is exactly from scratch. I'll fix the things you mentioned and then let's see if the image looks better. One thing though, I think I pull down the brightness a bit from the origin of the supernova but I think it needs to be bright if the star is exploding. But, I'll pull the brightness down so the explosion isn't flushing out the image.

EDIT: Here's a wallpaper I made customarily for my username!

Let somebody else try first.
