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!

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!
