Solar System: Day 268

Planets by Robert Chapman

After trying to create realistic – yet completely fictional – planets for the past couple of weeks or however long it’s been, it was a really nice breath of fresh air to do something a little more simplified. Though, it’s still pretty artistic. I got to use some of my previous planet creation techniques, but rather than focus on textures and light sources, this time it was all about color and form.

I seem to be steadily getting more and more readers/viewers on my daily content, and so I think it would be a good idea to get back to asking questions like I used to in the early days of these posts. I’m not really sure if I’ll get many answers, but it’s really important for me to continue trying to engage any viewers that do visit my site. So, with that said, I have an interesting question that will actually help me out immensely:

I’m not talking about my artwork specifically here, but pretend for an instant that you were interested in buying a piece of artwork that was outer space or science fiction related. Okay? Now, do you see yourself more likely to buy this kind of stuff like I made today? Or the more realistic digital paintings that I’ve created previously?

I ask this because personally, I like what I made today a lot better. From here on out I would like to take this and go a bit more abstract, but if I could find out if people even care for this simplified artwork, then I may consider doing more or less of these. Or I could move on completely and maybe get started on some other science fiction related space scenes.

I’m really enjoying what I’ve been putting out lately mainly because it’s just so varied. I don’t see myself getting bored of this any time soon. That’s not to say that I won’t take a break for a day or something in the future. We’ll just have to see what happens though.
