Grand eclipse

I will try to dig up some of my older paintings, as the new ones are still far from being finished. In this picture I tried to portray a Earth-like moon, entering a shadow of it’s Gas giant planet. The Gas giant here looks much bigger than it would if this place really exist. Let’s just say I like to paint scenes being viewed through a telephoto lens. This is a digital painting from 2014.

I am a self taught artist born and raised in Lithuania, working as a freelance illustrator. Ever since I was a kid, I was fascinated by the night sky. I used to spend entire nights, gazing at the stars through my window. My childish curiosity compelled me to find out more about the sky above. And more I learned, the more intrested I got in astronomy. I kept reading about all these worlds out there and I wanted to see and visit them all. I couldn't. But I got to do the next best thing. I could imagine them and transfer all that onto canvas. With years passing I managed to keep this passion alive. I got better at painting, I learned more about the planets and moons of our Solar system. And if I wanted more freedom from the science facts of the known worlds, I could always go further and imagine far away worlds, orbiting distant stars. The Universe is vast and no idea can be too big, or too crazy for it.
