The Voyager by axcy The Voyager by axcy
This is Major Tom to Ground Control. I'm stepping through the door and I'm floating in a most peculiar way. The stars look very different today. For here am I, sitting in a tin can far above the world; planet Earth is blue... and there is nothing I can do.














THANKS TO DAVID BOWIE. DOWNLOAD FOR 1920x1200.

I've loved the stars too fondly to be fearful of the night...rarely are words so aptly...

What beauty. I saw clouds and their light shadows on the distant dear earth.... The water looked like darkish, slightly gleaming spots.... When I watched the horizon, I saw the abrupt, contrasting transition from the earth's light-colored surface to the absolutely black sky. I enjoyed the rich color spectrum of the earth. It is surrounded by a light blue aureole that gradually darkens, becoming turquoise, dark blue, violet, and finally coal black.

I took this wallpaper and made some changes on it, since it's licensed under creative commons, I hope that you like what I did, I think is very cliché and trendy, haha, and this is definitely not my style, but makes for a nice version of the wallpaper:

I have enjoyed the progression of your art over the past few years. Your use of textures combined with a stencil like vector has always worked out well. The composition at first bothered me, but the use of space adds to the physiological effect of the astronaut's gaze. I know you have used informal symmetry with lighting to as well in previous works, but I feel the subtleness of this really works well. The alteration of the color on the right prevents it from just coming off as an inverted space background. I know you've done specific things on purpose, but I just want to congratulate you on mastering digital art to the point where you aren't distracted by noticing he did this with that photoshop filter.

good job man, and sorry for such a long comment.
