WOW Gladstoner, they're gorgeous!!! As a lifelong space art fan and collector I am very impressed. Love those Enceladus pictures, very evocative. Do you have an online gallery?

I remember a lot (though certainly not all, or even most) of that art from the children's space books I used to read when I was young -- I wish I still had some of those books! Libraries have long since discarded them as "out of date", and used book stores rarely carry them.

Chesley Bonestell was of course the best space artist from the period, but I am also partial to the work of Jack Coggins -- which, if not so technically proficient, had a wonderful way of capturing the darkness and loneliness of distant regions of space.

Ludek Pesek did quite a bit of georgeous geologically more realistic space art for National Geographic in the late 60's, early 70's. There's at least one book of his space-art. He also wrote an early (first or second) manned-mission-to-Mars novel, I think the title was "The Earth is Near", with the obligatory problems and crew struggle to survive plotline. It was nothing spectacular, but it was well done and carefully thought out.

Here's my artistic impression of the view from 150 km above the T16 canyon of Titan on an exceptionally haze-free day:

I used the same techinque as Gladstoner used in the first image of this thread, I combined multiple terrestrial photographs from my own collection then played with them heavily.

Thanks!

They are real pictures taken during some airplane trips over the last few years. The foreground canyon is Deer Canyon, Colorado, the mid background is a windfarm over Utah, and the sunset cloud image was over the flying over the Appalachians of North Carolina (always good for a hazy image - the cloud images were barely contrast enhanced.)

Would the sky really be blue? I was under the impression that quite a bit of oxygen is needed for that color, at least near the surface. Still looks cool though!

Of course, the blue haze layer, I forgot about it! Never mind!
