Space Painting

Check out these space painting artists’ wild creative processes.  

Space Painting uses some interesting techniques.

Spacepainter uses spray paint, pot lids and magazine pages to make amazing space art.  He seems to have arrived at a real technique for creating various space effects, including planets, mountains, and even waterfalls.

Look easy?  Try it!  I can’t figure out exactly how he does it.

Now watch the one-minute version.

Ah, this one reveals Spacepainter’s space painting secret! He wears a respirator.

This space scene painter Matt Sorensen uses a lot of FLAMES!

Even MORE flames with Matt Sorensen! Not sure what the first scenes have to do with painting but a real “warm up” if you know what I mean.

What do you think of this kind of Space Art?  Do these space painters make it look too easy?  Would you be more impressed with the results if they hid their creative secrets and pretended that it took days of hard work?

However they do it, I stand in awe of space artists who bring the uncanny and strange to life.

As Earth’s astronomers discover hundreds of alien worlds we need space painting to transform the raw telescopic data about far away planets into real vistas of the bizarre Universe that surrounds us.

Have you ever considered learning how to paint fantastic lands, celestial objects, or science fiction scenes?  

Games, films, magazines and books need talented artists to bring supernatural visions to life.  

I LOVE this kind of art and have always envied artists with the talent to transform a blank canvas into a mind-bending fantasy, science fiction or space painting.  

Here are some cool books on drawing fantastic architecture, space painting of real planets, and how to create science fiction art.
