Planetrix's Profile Picture

Artist | Hobbyist | Digital Art
United States
Software developer, writer and game master, branching out into visual arts. I started using GIMP years ago for small photo alterations, then gradually moved through online tutorials into more advanced territory. Would like to create art for several space-themed games and apps, but I'm definitely still learning the ropes. Feedback and comments are greatly appreciated!

Stepping back again today from solar bodies to showcase more astronaut pictures.  Because without them, we won't be going anywhere.

JULY 1969, A.D.

-- The words on a plaque left on the Moon by Buzz Aldrin and Neil Armstrong.

That's it for today!  If you ever wondered about the minutia of space travel and all its weird, yet mundane details (how *does* one test a toilet before it goes into space?), I highly recommend the book Packing for Mars by Mary Roach.

Here's my first feature on astronauts, for those interested:

The Planetarium: Ep. 11 -- Astronauts 
 ~ Looking Out ~
In the entire course of human history, only a handful of us have escaped the Earth's atmosphere and gazed out at the burning stars.  
This feature is all about astronauts (and cosmonauts), our first cosmic explorers.

Astronaut in outer space by VadimSadovski
“Exploration is in our nature. We began as wanderers, and we are wanderers still. We have lingered long enough on the shores of the cosmic ocean. We a

The Planetarium: Ep. 26 -- JupiterThere is very little that could surpass the natural beauty of Jupiter's swirling clouds.  The images coming back from the Juno spacecraft last year were, quite simply, stunning.  To capture that in art is a task undertaken by the brave souls of this week's feature, and they did not disappoint!

July2018 Acrylic Pours, batch 2 by Planetrix
If I haven't been as active on here lately it's because we're working on selling our house at the moment.  Hoping to post some more art soonish, but it's had to take a back seat to other areas of my life.
