First Space Scene
Hello forums, first time poster here, this is a space scene I did 2 days ago that I wanted to post for some feedback. I just got back into GIMP awhile ago after taking a long break from it, I've previously only used it for making game textures and that sort of thing so I wanted to do something a little bit different this time.

The one thing I'm not really satisfied with is the galaxy in the background. I created it using a brush that I found online, and gave a skewed aspect ratio and angle. In a different setting this brush would be fine, but for this scene in particular I realize it doesn't fit in all that well. Any advice on creating a more realistic one would be greatly appreciated.

RE: First Space Scene
Possibly try the gimp flame filter. Filters -> Render -> Nature -> Flame.

It will render onto a transparent layer over your image.

Use the edit button. It is a matter of trial and error, keep hitting the randomise option until you get something you like. Try the variations as well. Horseshoe works for galaxys. Then the 'camera' tab has a zoom option.

Plasma+Desaturate+While and Pinch+Some transparency tweaking+Perspective:

Slightly better, more or less the same technique, starting with a cross-shaped selection filled with plasma:
