The Shadow of the Sun by Abiogenisis The Shadow of the Sun by Abiogenisis
Life forms evolved for microgravity.

Two sentients shepherd a trio of flying life forms, who have angled their bodies towards the 'sun' for warmth.

In the far distance the forms of vast structures fill the sky.

No sentient living here has yet discovered their true nature.

This is one piece of art I'll always keep favorited, it reminds me of reading Carl Sagans cosmos where he had floaters, hunters and sinkers living on a Jupiter like planet.

Ive always been curious, is the one on the left wearing a harness?

Is it the aerosphere from the "Look to Windward" sci-fi novel from Iain M Banks ?

Definitely some Banks in there, as well as The Smoke Ring by Niven.
