Took a while to get this painting where I was content to call it done. Not really any banter between our astronauts this stop, other than one chiding the other for doing geology in the dark while the light show is going on. “You can pick up rocks when the sun’s back out!” “But- I thought I saw olivin-” “How can you even tell in this light??” Blocked out in Celestia, painted in Sketchbook Pro (the starfield is also taken from Celestia, just tweaked ever so lightly.)
Jett McIntyre Furr is an artist and graphic designer from Stanly County, North Carolina. His parents named him for aviation, and since an early age has had great interest in all things aviation and space related. Jett's primary training from college is in graphic design, but he also has experience with character design, digital paintings, 3D modeling, and video editing. He has previously worked as an intern and then volunteer at PBS affiliate WTVI Charlotte, and currently is available for freelance work, having done commissions mainly for individuals and a local game company. Lately, Jett has been applying what he has learned back to his love of space, and has a particular interest in the gas giants and exoplanets, using the digital brush to explore places and ideas that people have yet to explore themselves. Career-wise, Jett is looking to get into the animation industry and design characters and backgrounds for animated shows, and he is also looking into how to do illustration or other art and design work for space-related jobs. In joining the IAAA he hopes to learn from the experiences of community members and share what he learns in turn, and to possibly open up opportunities for professional work. Though most of all, he just wants to learn new things about space and be able to discuss it with artists around the world. There's always more to learn! Go to the artist's portfolio
