Paintings of Mars, Planets, Cosmos by BryanVersteeg, ChesleyBonestell

While we as humans dream paint pictures of the planets and space exploration and new colonies...will they out there one day in the future paint pictures and dream of return to Earth?

I thought I would share some space artists, some of these artists alone you could spend a full day talking of just one artist and their amazing work. Some used traditional paint and brush, other artists made models and sculpted, some used chalk and pencil, other more modern artists use software and CGI paint programs.

The Concept of Spacestation type ships by Encho Enchev

https://conceptships.blogspot.com/2017/ … nchev.html

A lot of Classic Retro-Futurist concepts from Robert McCall

http://factualfiction.com/marsartists/2 … space-age/

Lynette Cook's work is very much 'out there' she did a lot of galactic exoplanet stuff before anything was ever imaged I guess this was how guys like Chesley Bonestell would also have to dream up a scene from Titan or some other place without ever knowing the Moon or Planets.

Mark Garlick again does 'out there' galactic exoplanet stuff but also has Sunsets on Mars

For Mars_B4_Moon re new topic

Thanks for your significant investment of time and thought in compiling the opening post in this new topic!

SearchTerm:Museum of Space Art
SearchTerm:Art collection space
SearchTerm:Artist Space

I personally appreciated your mention of Dr. Gerard O'Neill's contribution to the genre, primarily (I suspect) through inspiration of creativity due to the scope of his ideas, and the power of his verbal and written presentations.

Old scifi radio play, some of these old shows and magazines had great art to go allow with radio broadcasts

Earthsearch by James Follett (S2E1): cult sci-fi drama sequel to his original Earthsearch.
4 million years ago, a fantasy scifi story tells the tale of the crew of the starship Challenger abandoned their search for Earth and made their home on Paradise, the third planet of a solar system on the fringe of the galaxy. But..


Across the West I notice our art has got more Dystopia, Oppressive, Blade Runner Style and Technocracy and Dark, it is becoming less out the Exploration. maybe it is the influence of politics, the real world but Art and Movies have become more Apocalyptic, Bleak Neon Dark Metallic Cityscapes and Horror and Less about Freedom and Building

SL9 Impact Fragment G Plume
https://www.flickr.com/photos/geckzilla/49806406468/
Late last year and early this year I was working hard on combining some old imagery from Hubble from the Shoemaker-Levy 9 impact event at Jupiter. I was staring at some fuzzy images (they were the sharpest images! but Jupiter is so far away, and I had to zoom way in...) and my imagination was running wild. After studying these images for so long I just had to take a break and create an illustration of what the plume might have looked something like up close.
