I have just recently received the opportunity to become the "Science Fiction and Space Art" Community Volunteer Gallery Moderator here on deviantART.
I am looking for "Science Fiction and Space Art" deviations to feature as Daily Deviations, and you can help.
If you know of any submissions that you think should gain more exposure and be Featured as a Daily Deviation,
and they are "Science Fiction and/or Space Art"related, send me a DD Suggestion via note.
I have info on my front page regarding how to suggest a DD if you have any questions.
I would prefer suggestions for artists that have less exposure and little to no previous DD's,
but I am not against awarding a Daily Deviation to worthy art from a more well known and decorated artist.
I simply want to try to focus on putting a spotlight on lesser known artists that have amazing art to share, so that their work ma

New concept images show a spacecraft with a warp drive that could travel to our nearest star in 4 weeks - current ships would take 80,000 years
Friday 13 June 2014
Believe it or not, Nasa is serious about creating faster than light travel, and have released a new batch of concept images (see gallery below) showing exactly what a spacecraft equipped with a star-hopping warp drive might look like.
Created in collaboration between Dutch artist Mark Rademaker and Nasa physicist Dr Harold White, the illustrations show a craft powered by an Alcubierre Drive – a hypothetical engine that was first suggested in 1994 as a way of achieving faster than light speeds.
Alcubierre’s device worked by distorting space-time, expanding the space behind a ship and contracting the space in front of it to create
Warhammer Scifi BattleWe all know that Warhammer 40K started out as Warhammer in Space, but what if GW stuck with that and made the parallels even greater? What if every WHFB faction got their own analogue in the 40K universe? What would such a game look like? Here are my ideas, feel free to suggest your own in the comments:Warhammer Scifi Battle1 week ago in Personal More Like This
Imperium of Man - The rather obvious faction, this Imperium is nowhere near as large or powerful as the 40K Imperium. It only owns what would be the Segmentum Solar in 40K, but is still governed along feudal lines. Thematically, the Imperium is far more Germanic than the canon Imperium; standard Imperial Guard look more like Wehrmacht than generic moderns, for example. They also have a bit of a Renaissance theme, not unlike the canon Mechanicus. The Imperium is doing far better than the canon one, being a bit more technologically advanced and having a higher standard of living. The first emperor is space Sigmar; in fact, he's named Sigm
Your Guide to the Pluto and New Horizons Fly-ByNew ideas about Pluto, Charon, and all the little moons have been flowing back from the New Horizons spacecraft fast and furious. If you’re curious but haven’t kept up, here’s everything we’ve learned so far.Your Guide to the Pluto and New Horizons Fly-By2 months ago in Personal More Like This
The New Horizons spacecraft is on a decade-long mission exploring deep space. It just completed the first-ever flyby of Pluto, a dwarf planet and the first Kuiper Belt Object ever explored. The spacecraft can either make observations or communicate with Earth, so for now it’s focusing on getting more data and sending back just the barest, highest-priority data in its failsafe downlinks. Even that tiny trickle of data has been enough to completely overthrow our theories of what we expected to find at the icy little world and its family of moons.
Spongebob Animated AtrocitiesSo I went through all of the Spongebob episodes, and marked the ones that I know are bad as animated atrocities. Do you know how many I found? No seriously, guess. 84. And then I went through it again and counted 89. Let me say that these are the ones that I've seen (I'm unfamiliar with most of season 8 and 9). You don't believe me? You seriously don't believe me? Here's a list of all of the animated atrocities that I've counted and a brief reason to why they're an atrocity. I can't believe I'm saying this, but please tell me if there's any that I missed:Spongebob Animated Atrocities2 years ago in Personal More Like This

The Conversion Bureau: Jesus Christ, Some PeopleThere's a sub-genre of fanfiction in the My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic fandom called "The Conversion Bureau." It is now ranked along the likes of Cupcakes as one of the most infamous pieces of shit to spawn from the fandom. What is it? A glorification of genocide and cultural imperialism. To be more specific, it's a sub-genre of FiM fanfiction in which Equestria somehow magically appears on Earth and forcibly converts humanity en masse via "ponification." In the process of doing so it destroys their free will, their personality and their memories, transforming them into a hive mind of psychologically conditioned and brainwashed ponies.The Conversion Bureau: Jesus Christ, Some People3 years ago in Personal More Like This
And the writers of these works of fiction advocate this. They even vehemently argue this belief. They portray Celestia, who leads this crusade to destroy human civilization, as utterly righteous. Why? Because she's a goddess. Therefore, she's right.
In other words, she has the biggest stick. No rebuttals, no counter-arguments,

On Characters...I don't consider myself by any means an expert at writing, so look at this journal more as advice for those just getting into the superhero writing genre since I get asked quite a bit for my opinions.On Characters...1 year ago in Personal More Like This
1) Start with a complete concept. What is your hero's name? What powers does he have? What does he look like? You should stop at these three questions and put some considerable time into them. The name is important because it is what everyone is going to call your hero. What he/she looks like is equally important. This is an area where I like to have fun. Designing a costume can be fun even if, like me, you aren't the best artistically. Be descriptive! Let us know what it looks like, what material it's made from and how it fits your hero. Does he/she have any scars? What color is their hair and eyes? A great description can go a long way, especially if you later commission an artist to capture their likeness. Finally there are powers. It's easy when part of a community like AF to simply t

Thoughts About InspirationInspiration can be the fuel for passion in designing anything. When it is fresh in our minds, it helps drive our creations forward with such zeal that the mind and hands cannot seem to stop making the inexistent and impossible real. The feeling is undoubtedly great to any creative mind. It can be found almost anywhere in any occasion when the subject in question is put into a context relative to the creative goal. One could eavesdrop on a conversation at a coffee shop to create an interesting piece of literature that could change the lives of millions. One could take a feeling from an engrossing sci-fi movie and to research, observe, and create exotic vehicles that may drive future designs of the space program. When inspiration is used, it brings the best out of human ingenuity.Thoughts About Inspiration2 years ago in Personal More Like This
As great as inspiration can be, it cannot thrive well within a vacuum. Ideas become stagnant or uninteresting if subjects of inspiration are strictly homogenous or do not expand outside of comfort zones. At the

Notes on Character Design
I received the question pictured below at my tumblr blog. In case it's useful to anyone here, I decided to go ahead and use this otherwise dormant journal to share the article I put together in response.
Character design and drawing are tome-sized topics and even if I had all the answers (I don't - I have a lot to learn), I'm not sure I could communicate them effectively. Here are some thoughts an ideas that might help, though.
First, some general things...
Let some of that anxiety go. This isn't a hard science. There's no wrong way,
Orion EFT1 Launch on 12/4 Update 9-6/10/14Exploration Flight Test 1 or EFT-1 (previously known as Orion Flight Test 1 or OFT-1) is the first planned uncrewed test flight of the Orion Multi-Purpose Crew Vehicle. Set to launch in 2014 atop a Delta IV Heavy from Space Launch Complex 37 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, the mission will be a multi-hour, two-orbit test of the Orion Crew Module featuring a high apogee on the second orbit and a high-energy reentry at around 20,000 mph. This mission design is essentially equivalent to that of the Apollo 4 mission of 1967, which validated the Apollo flight control system and heat shield at re-entry conditions planned for the return from lunar missions.Orion EFT1 Launch on 12/4 Update 9-6/10/143 years ago in Personal More Like This
After splashdown in the Pacific Ocean, crews will recover the EFT-1 Orion crew vehicle and outfit the capsule for an ascent abort test. The spacecraft will remain attached to the Delta IV's Upper Stage until reentry begins and will rely on internal batteries for power rather than photovoltaic arrays, which will not be installed.

Reward for the art delaysWell, I'd like to say that I'm sorry for taking so long with uploading anything, and that I have only been working a little bit on sprites. However, I have decided to drop working on Generation 2.5 sprites, and move on to 'generation III', as I have already come up with a multitude of ways to make my sprites better.Reward for the art delays6 months ago in Personal More Like This
Yes, this means more delays. Yes, this means no Aircraft. Yes, this means that I'm probably more focused on bugging my parents to pay for PS+ rather than work on sprites to show to you guys. As reimbursement, however, I have decided to let you see my furthest progress on my sprite ground vehicles, as well as some sketches, as to let you know that I will be trying to improve upon even this. You'll see some new sprites soon enough... and maybe a few more spaceships.

Reunion Pt. 4Before Shaw could fully realize what was happening or even stumble in the sudden darkness he had found himself engulfed in, he realized he was off his feet, suspended high above the ground in the dark void which Naga had turned the room into in his sudden outburst. Something was constricting him, an invisible hand crushing his torso, his arms wrapped close to his body. He felt a sudden painful shock along his spine and the back of his skull as he was slammed violently against a shadow covered wall, a second thud beside him could be heard immediately after. In his daze he could hear whimpering coming from the source of the second sound. Dread forced its way into his mind driving his limbs painfully numb and lifeless. Another whimpering cry emanated from beside him. He knew now he was not alone in what was to come, but he could not see just who it was. A low, angry growl filled the room.Reunion Pt. 47 months ago in Personal More Like This

10 Facts #21 1. Since the curse never existed among drakes and humans before it is believed by some drakes that Naga is the source of vampires and associate the two very closely, among other dark creatures and demons which they also associate with Naga. Various connections have been made based on their similar natures and abilities, but there is no definite answer as to how true this is.10 Facts #217 months ago in Personal More Like This
2. A curse can be passed along as easily as a disease. One can be cursed by proximity to a certain object or simple physical contact. How long the curse lasts is debatable. Curses not put on an individual directly or specifically can be easily removed if the proper rituals or activities are done, such as when drakes clean themselves.
