Spectacular rendering of the solar system to scale

I don't know about you, but every time I'm reminded about the huge scale of the universe, I mentally re-evaluate my own life and my relationship with what is around me. This amazing illustration by Roberto Ziche's with the Sun and the planets laying on the floor makes that comparison even more impressive. » 11/05/14 6:42am 11/05/14 6:42am

Sure, you're not supposed to play with fire but what about painting with fire? That's what artist Steve Spazuk does. He uses flames and smoke to create beautiful artwork with images that are literally burned in. Spazuk employs other tools like feather brushes and x-acto knives but his artwork begins with fire.

Classic sci-fi spaceships make me nostalgic for a future that never was

French illustrator Manchu is one of the masters of classic sci-fi illustration. His worlds and spaceships are massive, optimistic, colorful, and sometimes even zany on his alien spaceship designs.

I wish I could Iive 200 more years to see a scene like this

I like Johnson Ting's vision of Neo Japan 2202, wherever his Neo Japan is located to have two moons (or maybe one is no moon but some space station, I don't know.)

Post-apocalyptical space shuttle and other great art by Yuri Shwedoff

I love the perfect surfaces and old school style of Russian artist Yuri Shwedoff's illustrations. I wish I could buy the original of the one above, titled White Castle. Or any of the images below. His alternate fan movie posters for Rambo (yes, Rambo), Guardians of the Galaxy or Fight Club are so good. » 10/07/14 2:19am 10/07/14 2:19am
