Ron Miller’s Planet Art Shows How Night Sky Would Look If Earth Had Planets Instead Of Moon (PHOTOS)


Here’s a crazy idea: what if you looked up at night and saw not the moon but an enormous Saturn looming over the horizon? Or if Jupiter filled the night sky?

For the eye-popping images below, Ron Miller, former art director for the National Air and Space Museum’s Albert Einstein Planetarium, reveals how the planets in our solar system would look if they were as close to Earth as the moon.

Light and shadow in drawings by Dylan Andrews

Dylan Andrews is currently a third year student on the Drawing and Applied Arts course in the University of the West of England. His work centers mainly around portraiture and studies of the human form. He aims to portray emotion without the use of obvious facial expressions, instead he manipulates light and shadow in his images in order to construct dramatic moods and atmospheres. The use of pattern and texture is also prominent in his studies, as he explores the different ways that these components can form a surreal aspect to his work.

Red Sonja Commission Process

I recently posted these process photos of a pre-show commission on my Instagram account. Here I am posting the entirety of it in a single post without the filters.

  • Step 1 - I draw the layout digitally.
  • Step 2 - I print out the sketch and lightbox it onto the paper.
  • Step 3 - The pencils are erased after I loosely ink the piece. Starting out with the marker rendering.
  • Step 4 - More rendering. I try to complete segments before moving on to other areas.
  • Step 5 - With the background done and the textures added, the marker rendering is complete.
  • Step 6 - I complete the inking process and add finalizing touches.

Hope you enjoy. Further info can be found in my FAQ page.

The Paint Chip Series

US artist Shawn Huckins explores colour choice and its meaning in our daily lives. Mimicking the exact proportions, font, layout, and hues of miniature paint cards found at a nation-wide home improvement store, bands of colour we may choose for our most intimate spaces—bedrooms, kitchens, family rooms—are an ideal stage to examine the everyday people and objects that occupy our world.
