Yes, it is quite contemplative isn't it? My favorite as well.
There is a lot of wasted talent on the SE forums - it would be interesting if more of our modder's work could be incorporated into in the main game (with permissions of course).
Anyway, here's the earlier, non-digital work of this next space artist, Ron Miller
, who was an associate of Pamela Lee. You may recognize his name from various astronomy-related magazines, books and websites:
(A famous painting depicting the inside of Jupiter's clouds):
(In the clouds of Neptune):
(Concept for a Soviet space station of the Salyut program
(Landing on Europa):
Ron Miller still does rather good space art, now mostly in digitalized form. Unfortunately, most people know him just for that, and do not recognize the fact that he has been at this since the early seventies using various mediums. He was also the art director in the National Air and Space Museum
's Albert Einstein Planetarium.
