Quaoar and Weywot

Kuiper belt objects, Quaoar and it’s tiny moon Weywot. The surface is probably way too rugged to be realistic, but I felt that it was more appealing visually, and also apropriate for an object which has been battered by chunks of ice and rock for over 4 billion years.

I studied astronomy at University College London, but failled to get my degree. For many years pre-internet, I ran the bulletin board "Starbase 1", which is why you will frequently see me referring to myself as that! I am currently on the board of the IAAA. I operate exclusively in digitals using many different software packages. Most often Lightwave 3d, Vue, Photoshop Elemnts, Affinity Photo. I also ejoy oddball graphics packages like Xenodream, Amberlight, aqnd others.
