Hello Nick!

Great images and models you do! I know your homepage at starbase1.co.uk for a long time. There is a lot of interesting pictures on your website and I also found very usefull some of your Lightwave tutorials. And I totally enjoying space art made by community of this Network! Indeed very idea of gathering space people together is brilliant!

Hello, we actually share a media-gallery at http://www.icarusinterstellar.org/ :)

First thing I am going to do is to upload a update of the Deadalus picture. It appeared earlier this year in a Dutch newspaper.

Hi Nick,

I thoroughly enjoyed creating the luminous flow.  Although I've never seen anything similar either I felt that the contrast of the brightness of the star fields and the darkness of the dust alleys gave the appearance of a tightly twisting and fast moving galaxy - the effects of a super massive black hole.  Bit like water going down a plug hole.  No idea if this is what it would look like but the idea appealed to me.

You were so right about the lighting in the image of the type Sa-Sb. What a big difference a few adjustments made not only to the values but the perspective. It almost looks 3D. Thanks!

Nick, thank you for the encouraging comments, they're greatly appreciated. I see what you're saying about the bright background in the Sa-Sb and it is well noted. I will adjust that and post another version of it as well.

Hi Nick.

As suggested, I've posted a some of my work.

Your work is very inspirational. I am thoroughly in awe of the composition and realism you are able to inject into the illustrations you have up here. Beautiful images!

Hello Nick,

Although I've always been interested in Astronomy and Science in general, I am very new at Space Art. It was last year that a good friend of mine asked if I would create a cover for a book he was writing on the philosophical argument for or against a Creator God. I had to do some research and it took me back to perusing the Hubble and Webb for some ideas. Well, after I did the book cover my interest was so piqued that I wanted to see if I could simulate (not duplicate) some of the images those wonderful  instruments have given us to marvel at.

It was a link on fellow ISAN member Joe Bergeron's site that lead me here. My hesitancy in posting was out of deference to the work of the artists I have seen here on ISAN. Besides, because I am so new at doing space art I'm still in the process of registering my work with the Copyright office (most all of my compositions have been done within the last year). Although the originals are of high resolution, I thought it would be wise to display them here at a lower resolution. 

Thank you for giving me the "nudge"

Mario

Incidentally people, Im getting near the end of the Jodrell Bank radio telescope modelling, and will shortly be deleting the various work in progress images and animations...

Thanks for your comments on `Galactic Centre`, Nick. Really lifted my spirits on this cold, wet, miserable, this-is-supposed-to-be-flaming-June,-for-Pete`s-sake, day. Much appreciated.

I'm here to learn. I'm painting a hemispheric dome with a deep space image and Galileo. It won't be complete until September. I was hoping I could pick up some tips on airbrush techniques that can effectively create swirls of color representing nebula and other space phenomena. I don't use any digital software....

Brown dwarves are very inspiring specially about lighting effects.

Hi Nick, Thanks for your comments on `Centaurus A`. I think you`re probably right, Bruce Pennington was a hero of mine way back then.

Nick,
thanks for your comment! I'll definitely check out Robert Rich's piece - I could play it at my next vernissage...

Thanks for the comments, Nick. I don`t know how you do that 3D stuff. I remember being amazed by the launch pad environment of the Russian N1, how you could move about it and view the pad from various angles. An overused word, but it was AWESOME.
