Hey bro how do you draw digitally like this or is it real paint. If digitally do you use photoshop? With which brush do you paint?

If religion is the thesis and science is the antithesis, what is the synthesis?
"By measuring the number and luminosity of observable galaxies in the known universe, astronomers put current estimates of the total stellar population at roughly seventy billion trillion."
- Maria Temming, How Many Stars Are There in the Universe?

Eustace: "In our world, a star is a huge ball of flaming gas."
Ramandu: "Even in your world, my son, that is not what a star is, but only what it is made of."
- C. S. Lewis, The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, chapter XIV

"The sun? Conscious? How?" 'In a way lower organisms like you have difficulty to grasp. One thought from the source takes longer than a human life. A conversation with other stars takes thousands of your years.' "All the stars are conscious?" A dry laughter resounded. 'Of course. They are the original inhabitants of the cosmos. Without them there would be no organic life, let alone organic consciousness.'
- Elian Lazaro, Elysium

"The proposition is that Sun is a living, conscious being with an intelligence that dwarfs our own. I am not only suggesting that Sun is a large complex system with some form of self-governing intelligence to it, but also that it is a living being, aware of itself and its place in the universe; that it is fully conscious and communicates with other conscious beings at its own level, and other levels; that its consciousness is so far beyond what we enjoy that it could be accorded deity status of a high order, and be recognized as a conscious being by atheists and agnostics, whatever spin they put on it.
As staggering as this proposition might seem, it is hardly novel, and was once held as a near universal belief or understanding in most parts of the globe. It is possible that generations of Neolithic peoples, the ancient Sumerians, Chaldeans, and Assyrians, the Egyptians, Greeks, Romans, Maya, Inca, Aztec, and the ancient Celts and Native Americans were not completely deluded. Perhaps they were right to regard Sun as a living celestial being, rather than view the prime enabler of life-on-Earth as just another random event in the infinity of space, deserving neither credit nor appreciation. We can add the world's 750 million Hindus to the list above, as well as followers of Shinto, the native Japanese religion revering Sun goddess Amaterasu."
- Gregory Sams, Sun of gOd

"The sun alone appears, by virtue of his dignity and power, suited for the duty of moving the planets, and worthy to become the home of God himself."
- Johannes Kepler, The Harmony of the World

"Any sufficiently advanced extraterrestrial intelligence is indistinguishable from God."
- Michael Shermer's last law

"The Sun is God."
- Joseph Mallord William Turner…

I used your picture to illustrate a post on « The Gods » on our Ninth Age France Facebook page (…), just wanting to make sure that you don't mind.
The Ninth Age is a community project aimed at creating a fantasy world for a wargame – that should also include a fantasy version of India.
By the way, there's at the moment an art contest going on, with theme « Warriors of the Dark Gods fighting others », if you or some of your friends want to participate. (more details on
And thank you for your fantastic work !

Can I use this for a slide on Surya? It is the only perfect depiction so far
1. Has the 'one wheel chariot'
2. Surya wears boots - see Konarak Idol of Surya
3. Technically wheel must have 12 spokes for 12 months, but this is very fine.
I am doing this presentation for free ...but can pay something.

May I ask, who is the charioteer?
He is the elder brother of Garuda
His name is Arun.
dsharmadotcom's avatar
Eagle named as ARUN Dev is a charioteer for Surya Dev's chariot.
