The last planet I worked on painting was somewhere in the primordial stage, some green sludge, some frozen or trapped water. The next world I decided to work on was along the same lines just a little further developed. More of an earth like planet, capable of hosting multicellular life, or even becoming a second home to humanity?
Once again I am much happier with this planet, the level of detail is much better and showcases my digital painting a bit better.
One of these days I will get down to doing a real tutorial again… possibly on how to use Photoshop to make planet and space art. I am still working on resources for my resume and portfolio website, mainly the planets that will become the hover over links that will serve as main navigation icons.
The planets I made last month were… okay, but I wanted to push myself and see if I could get back into the swing of things and make planets that really make my jaw drop. I will admit it has been a few years since I did Space-Art…
Here is the first of the newest set of planets I am working on, this one I am really happy with.
I tried to design it as a young planet, that is just beginning to develop basic organics, still mostly rocky, with the majority of its water still frozen.
I have been trying to figure out how to finish thegrav.com. I need planets, in two sizes, I know that much… after that I will need to sit back and think once again. This means I need to paint a few planets. So I set out to paint 6 planets in total. I figured this time around I would try to reach out with social media and poll some of the people that follow my art page, in order to pick which planets I was gonna use.
The six choices I have given my fan are: A Metal World, Ice World, Living World, Desert World, Volcanic World, and a Dead World. I however don’t get off easy, I still have to paint all 6 before I can really ask anyone to vote! So far I have finished three! Check em’ out!
