Newer Space Art

I did this a while ago and at that time had meant to start a series of space art and aerospace paintings.

I’m also in the process of doing some some spacecraft models. Gemini, Mercury Redstone and some really cool Von Braun concept designs Wernher did in the 50’s. In particular the Space Ferry he designed the year I was born.

I plan to do a painting of that and an actual model from scratch that will also fly under rocket power. Something I’ve wanted to do since I was a kid.

I already started designing the model in a program called Open Rocket. This program allows one to not only design the rocket but test it in simulation before you build it. It helps predict the physics of the model, the CG, COP, and more.

Being designed in the building program
The program actually enables you to see your bird in flight from all angles and types of backgrounds.

Art and science mixed together is making at it’s best for me.
