On the Subject of Living worlds…


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.

Another World Forge


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.

OrganicI 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.

More to come!

Oh Snap! Planets!


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!
