Blood Moon
Took a photo of the 21st of January 2019 blood moon during maximum eclipse at 1:12 am AST here in Trinidad. Photo taken with my iPhone 10 at roughly 2x zoom, through the 25mm eye piece of my celestron nextstar 114 slt reflecting telescope. Quality isn't that great because my phone can only focus so much. I took a series of photos up too the maximum eclipse and so I will try to compile a gif and post it.

A very Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to everyone. 🎉
i just noticed that a fella on youtube by the name of Artifexian, has a really good series of tutorials on world building. it may be worth the look for anyone interested in making planets. with that in mind, my series of tutorials may then not be worth it, as he does cover a lot of what i was planning to cover, ... unless there is something very specific you'd like me to cover for y'all. so take a look at that and let me know down below.

and do not worry i do plan on actually doing a tutorial/s on how to actually make the world map, clouds, city lights, etc....
Now that y'all finally have a face to go with my identity here on DA, is there anything you would like to know about Alpha? you can ask me anything about him. just leave a comment below this status and i'll respond.

*and yes don't worry i didn't forget about the planet tutorial series, i'm just caught up in finals and helping my parents in the shop for the christmas season.*

Its been several years since i joined this community and ever since then I've seen many DD's from many branches of art styles and artists. Despite this I never expected to receive one myself. This however does not diminish the value and appreciation I have for receiving such high recognition for my artwork, and for that I am truly grateful not just for the award but also the community for making this happen, and keeping me going all these years, making artwork.

*ALSO PS: i know i haven't made any artwork (or should i say posted anything) in over a year, and i do apologize for that, but i have LITERALLY been working on entire star systems for my fictional universe, as well as other off project stuff. I am really HOPING that i can at least put out something for you all this year. Sorry for the long wait.

just a space enthusiast who tries to make realistic planets, with a splatter of sci-fi and fantasy every now and again. also is too lazy to be bothered to finish artworks sitting on hard drive for the past five years. is even more lazy when it comes to drawing. kind of a perfectionist which lends to his lack of recent artworks, also considers himself to be 'not good enough', despite other's opinions. becomes demotivated easily if he spends too much time on one thing. is torn between being an artist or a biochemist as a profession, i.e. would rather be an artist out of enjoyment, but has skills to be a biochemist i.e. i.e. would have probably enjoyed astrophysics over the nightmare that is biochemistry.

Favourite genre of music: whatever sounds good.
Favourite style of art: manga, space art, sci-fi, anthro, digital.
Operating System: windows 10 on my PC, 8 on my tablet.
MP3 player of choice: my computer, iphone, good ole youtube.
Favourite cartoon character: can't really pick.
Personal Quote: IMAGINATION IS AN ARTIST'S MOST POWERFUL TOOL! <---cheesy quote is cheesy.
