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

Until next time,

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!

Planetrix has started a donation pool!
751 / 5,000
Saving up for CORE, and for future raffle prizes :)

Donate points here to adopt a planet from me, and be sure to mention the planet's name in the description of the transaction, thanks!

You must be logged in to donate.


Just something I've been dabbling in lately:

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.
Happy Christmas, my friends! I'm going to try and sneak a cup of coffee by myself before the chaos starts. Hope you all find your perfect moments of peace and joy today, and best wishes for the new year!
Decided to put this week's episode of The Planetarium on hold, in lieu of doing the #TwelveDaysofFeatures challenge.  Will be returning to the regular feature schedule soon.  Watch for an upcoming artist interview on the 22nd, and the next episode of The Planetarium on the 29th.
NaNoWriMo: The Aftermath

Well, I did it.  I've participated in NaNo four times, and this is my second win!  I clocked in 50,113 officially validated words and finished perhaps 3/4 of a novel last month.  As a motivational reward, I promised myself that I'd grab the 2-for-one CORE membership deal if I finished on time.  So, it looks like I'll be able to create nicely formatted feature journals for awhile yet :P

Thanks to everyone who supported me during my period of literary abandon.  I appreciated every comment and all the words of encouragement.  You guys rock!

Thanks for adding my finalized version of the region of uroch to your favorites. 

I am possibly thinking of making it better.

For example: I was thinking of adding borders to the map, like some maps have when they show different locations.

Thank you for the favourite, if you're curious you could find more stuff in my gallery on DA.

Have a nice day :) (Smile)

No problem -- I went ahead and checked out the rest of your stuff and really enjoy your sci-fi scenes.  Keep up the great work!

Thanks for the llama, I’m sending you one back! (Give a llama-> receive a llama) :D (Big Grin)

Thanks for adding my concept map to your favorites. I've got a second concept, and a third concept. Which is likely to be the last and final concept for the region of Uroch.

Thank you for giving me a llama badge. I greatly appreciate it.


I have given you one in return.
