Solar Scapes - 2018 calendar

Finally! I finished what was my largest project for the year and perhaps one of my largest ever! :w00t: I've been spending a few months making 12 unique never-before-seen artworks so I can delight anyone who buys it with a whole dozen original depictions of the Solar System that can't be found anywhere else online, so I can't stress that enough - these aren't just modified versions of my existing work, they are all unique, built around the same theme, and while I don't try to score "pity points" for the amount of time I spend on my work, I can honestly say all this took well over 100 hours at the least :faint:

My goal was to give people a fairly realistic (but a bit exaggerated for art's sake) view of not just the planets as they appear from space, but illustrations showing what it's like to actually go there! :omg: it will be the cheapest price you'll ever pay to go places that Man has never been before (except the Moon) :paranoid:

Updated for 2018: This calendar has been purchased by at least a handful of people in previous years and I have received some very happy commentary regarding it's quality. It's calendar-buying season, and for those far from the US, better buy it now since knowing what shipping can be like sometimes you may not get it 'till early next year ;p

I still have my old Solar Scapes calendar from like 2011 or something. Still totally worth going back to look at. And to show to people, too.

Glad you still like it. Nowadays I have another calendar with a similar theme available too, just in case next year you want something different ;p
InfiniteFruit's avatar
I'll definitely consider it, man. =P

How much dough are they? lol (dollars I mean?)
Chromattix's avatar
Usually little over $20. I only get about $5 of each sale though. But there's shipping fees on top of that. But maybe because you live in Canada it might not cost as much as it does to get one sent all the way down to Australia (seeing how all dA stuff ships from the US)

I'll note you little later in the day. I'm going to figure it out.

Hello Matt, I just bought three of these calendars, I just had to have it, because you make such overwhelming renders and I know I probably will never be as awesome as you are in your art, but still I do my best and I'm striving to become better. Thank you so very much for your art. You make the world a better place.

You bought THREE :omg: One for each room? or are some gifts? :D Either way, thanks a lot for that. I hope you end up liking the printed results and won't have to wait too long to get them (deviantART does all the shipping work, I did wait over a month for a print I bought once :hmm:) but that should still allow plenty of time for it to arrive before the new year begins. Let me know what you think when you get them :)

I certainly will. Well, I don't know yet if I would want to give such a beautiful thing away, at the very least I will keep one. I really love star nebulae in the universe and all about the universe. Again thank you so much. I'll be a daredevil now and hug you!Hug All The Best 4u By Kmygraphic-d7l3djx by anne1956

The calendars arrived and they are so awesome, the quality of the print is very good, the paper makes the colours of the renders shine, and last but not least your pictures are more than outstanding. 
This is one of the most beautiful calendars I've ever seen and I, working in a bookstore selling a whole lot of calendars, too, have seen a lot of calendars im my life. 
Keep up your more than great work. Really outstanding great work!
