Purple Planet Completed: Day 262

"Purple Planet" by Robert Chapman

This digital painting wasn’t originally intended to be a work in progress, but I spent a few more hours touching it up today. What a difference! I really think this is a picture I would like to have printed out in nice glossy paper, and maybe framed or something. Anyone out there interested in buying some copies? Just wondering… I might be on to something here.

I think painting space scenes is what I enjoy the most out of everything I’ve ever done. Let me list the reasons:

  • It’s abstract. In it’s own way
  • There’s plenty of character and emotion
  • There’s no limit to the colors you can use
  • Aliens, spaceships, and unexplainable things? Yes please
  • I can add an insane amount of detail, while using massive resolution

I’m sure I could go on and on but you get the picture. I’m not sure if I could pull it off as realistically as the scene I made today (and yesterday), but I would love to draw some asteroids and comets. They usually have wacky shapes, so there’s no using the Spherize tool (that’s what I use to make planets round) so that would be a challenge. I love what something like the Rosetta comet looks like, and I’ve wanted to draw it for some time actually.

    Oh yeah for sure I’d buy a picture of your space stuff! 🙂

    • Cool! I may have to try and get some made. At least figure out prices, quality, etc.
