Been drawing almost daily since I was a toddler, I tried digital for the first time in 2001 but didn't adopt it as a serious and regular medium until coming here and working harder at it in 2006. I have invested thousands of hours and dollars in this hobby just in the past few years alone - please don't steal what I've dedicated everything I have to perfecting :police:

Wow wow I'm 30 now :faint: I've been having mixed feelings about it for months, on one hand I feel pretty bummed out that my 20's are over forever now which seems to be the only age demographic the world still considers fun and cool. On the other hand it has given me a little kick in the bum when it comes to trying to motivate myself to actually be be more fun and cool, since I spent a lot of the past ten years tirelessly working away on my hobbies, most noticeably my art. It's paid off in many ways and kept me busy during a time I didn't really have much else going on, and I definitely want to keep at it. Yet I want to start living a little more in between. I started this weekend actually and went clubbing for the first time with some trusted friends from work. In the course of just a few hours I went from shy and feeling out of place to dancing on a raised platform shirtless, and no - I wasn't on anything, unless you count the esteem boost from getting compliments from multiple people in a night as a drug :boogie: I really needed that, to feel sexy at an age where many men start to turn a little bleh. I could easily do more of this :D

Also bought this totally sick new jacket for myself, arrived in the mail just in time!

Plus I got some nice gifts from my family and got to spend some time with everyone who matters to me. It really took the sting out of getting a little older and now that all the excitement is over I can finish off my annual birthday-landscape piece I started, even if it means being a few days late - it's justified this time, I actually did fun stuff :la: Here's hoping I can do in my 30's what I was too afraid or just under-resourced to do in my 20's - live a little, find out who I really am and what I really want out of life. Some things never change though - I'm still pretty invested in deviantART, the one place I felt like I could always be myself from the very beginning, now I want to try and transcend that feeling into my personal life. Who knows, my experiences might even inspire some new art ideas.

Man I can imagine you'd be able to feel the heat from it all the way out here. The water on an atmosphere-less world gives a very surreal look that reminds me of scenes I used to create years ago (before I even joined dA and when I never would have imagined doing anything this good) that often had that. Because something about still water reflecting a cosmic sky is just cool-looking (even if physically impossible since I think water evaporates without any atmospheric pressure above it, but who cares, this is art :shh:)

But one thing I noticed regarding the reflections is the placement of the planets within it. Using the lava moon for example (because it's the only "whole" sphere in the scene) the reflection of it suggests it should already be a quarter of the way below the horizon. I think if you can still see 100% of a body in the sky then you also see 100% of its reflection (we don't get any opportunities to try this on earth because water here over long distances is never that still) This could be passed off as an artistic choice since "accurate" reflections would mean you'd barely see any of the lava moon's reflection at all behind those rocks in the foreground. But just something I felt the need to bring up just in case.

Deviousness Award

Deviousness Award
If you've spent any time browsing the galactic wonders of the Space Art gallery on DeviantArt, you have likely run into the otherworldly creations of Chromattix. Much to the delight of the viewer, he uses a digital canvas to unleash his wild imagination in a vast array of vivid colors and incredible textures. However, it is more than his graceful invitation to visit the lands he creates that draws one to him -- his infectious personality and his love for the DeviantArt community serves as a beacon to all. After over a decade, he still calls DeviantArt home and takes the time to provide meaningful critique and feedback to fellow community members. Let us also not forget that he was the first to be honest about, "Where Subscriber Money Really Goes". We are delighted to be awarding Deviousness, March 2018 to Chromatixx!

I... don't know what that is (sadly I don't have white hair anymore, I mean I might again someday but it's more of a light brown/blonde at the moment) But this organization you speak of interests me, especially if that's their standard look 8-)

Ah. The only Nero I knew of before was the character from Devil May Cry (who also has white hair :XD:) I took at look at them, they do have a pretty slick clothing style.
