Well Jinny, I believe in aliens. Out of the whole universe, there is another planet with some life form

I think there is a math equation here somewhere that calculates the number of planets where there may be life equal or more intelligent than us (me thinks that be a safe bet -more intelligent than us. Jan

Hi everyone,

I have remarked that, in spite of its innoffensive caracter, my drawings disturbs a little bit. I am positively sorry. I promise that from now on, I will be more realistic. Forgive the past. I hope that I will be less disturbing in a subforum. It is a great idea.

Happy Valentine

SOLAR VOYAGER I think this is somebody who travels through the Galaxy

MILKYWAY - size: 100 000 light years  stars: ~ 1 000 000 000 andthe Drake equation said the rest

in view of these dimensions should be enough place for all variations but possibly  in a different topic or a gallery (as you have said maybe only finished pics)

and an own section for Works-In-Progress  would be great

peace scorp

excuse my english i am in the training

I think a decision to ban science fiction art on these forums will kill a lot of the work posted here.  Unless it is a drawing a nebula or celestial object we know...space art is technically science fiction.

i agree with you 100%

its an interesting discussion.

astronmical art is fairly easy to define but space art and sci-fi does have a grey area inbetween. I think the key phrasing may be that space art is based on 'known science', or 'our current scientific understanding' of the universe.
at least that is how I try and define it as i have this problem on my own site trying to decide which pictures to put in my space art section and sci-fi section.

while we may suspect existence of or believe in aliens, we dont know what they look like or what their cities or space craft look like so for me this would be sci-fi

before the huygens probe many artworks indicated what Titan might look like based on what science was indicating. some artworks that NASA/ESA used were admitedly just apalling but some were carefully considered based on known science so that was definately space art even though as events unfolded some were a little off but not always by that much due to research.

------------

another thing sharky

you mentioned a realistic shuttle was boring but IMHO its not the subject thats boring its what the artist does with it. anthing can be presented boringly its the artist that makes it work. for instance I think B.E. Johnson has done the space shuttle many times but never is it boring http://imperialearth.com/painted.html
and take portraits of people its just a person but the arist makes that person a work of art. I think most artists in any field would say its all in the lighting.

and there you go, thats my thoughts for the day.

Hello everyone,

Yes, it is clear on this angle. And, of course, yes we have never seen extraterrestrial forms of life until now. However, I think that we can to speculate about hypothetic specimens. I remember that I have seen very pertinent drawings of alien creatures in some astronomical books : Time Life encyclopťdies, Carl Sagan's Cosmos, etc. If we don't fall in folkloric "little green men fantasies", and if we take in account the laws of nature as well as we can, we stay in realistic space art.
