I think this type of thread would make a nice addition to the forum. A place for anyone to show off cool stuff they've done. I'm talking about art, designs, science experiments, home-built contraptions- anything cool or interesting.

There is a space art thread, but that's really specific. I think this thread should be a general "show off your work thread", and I really hope one doesn't exist because I've searched the forum for something like it and couldn't find it.... so I suppose I'll start it, right?

I'm going to start this thread off with a link to my latest "walkthrough video"- it's a design I created (using SketchUp 8) of a space station inspired by Space Station V from 2001: A Space Odyssey (the movie and the book). I call it Space Station VI. (BTW: It's not really space art- it's an architectural/design concept relating to space travel.)

Here it is!

EDIT: Some of my earlier posts in this thread are outdated; links or images I've posted may be gone since I change what's on my website from time to time.

This is a drawing I've made a few years ago. The scene takes place in an imaginary world called "Veldaki".



Very good idea of topic, werdnaforever.

Thanks!

That's an interesting drawing. Is it from a computer program or is it scanned in? It looks like it drawn in pen and watercolor. Is it part of a larger series of drawings? Also, what does "Thee -1/12 Mathematical Unlimited Database" mean?

This is a pencil drawing, scanned.

I've made tens of drawings like these. And some texts. But the most important part is in my imagination.

This is a pseudo of mine. In an old veldakian language called Nemidu, "Voe Koe Va Ka" means "minus one twelfth"...

And another drawing :

My 21,000 foot "Tower of 3". It's a gigantic, triangular shaped skyscraper. One atrium has a 3000 foot ceiling.

You're a very good artist, I especially liked the second picture you posted. I'm guessing Nemidu isn't a real language- I find constructed languages interesting.

The combination of realistic objects in a surreal scene with a classical feel reminds me of the unique work done by Gil Buvel. His paintings are amazing- perhaps otherworldly.

Maybe planet Veldaki exists somewhere in Space Engine! (You can try to find it, but I can't guarantee that it will take less than many billions of years.)

Don't worry. Even I, at the beginning, I was thinking that I couldn't draw, and then I started to observe nature and tried to draw it.
One of the most important skill it needs is patience. When you start a big drawing, you don't have to stamp it, and if you fed up, stop it and return back later.

I like conlangs too, and Nemidu is the favorite of mine. This tongue doens't use any adjective or verb, and it's syntax is very special.

Veldaky is an entire system. I don't think it could exist in Space Engine because its four planets are flooded in an "asteroid continuum", and the space itself is not euclidian here...

It's not that i lack patience, but i'm actually physically unable to draw better. My Aspergers syndrome reduces my fine motor abilities, which makes even my writing very hard to read.
Oh how i envy you sad

Try pixel art. It is much longer to do, but you can Ctrl-z !
