+Gwen Farnsworth Thank you very much Gwen. Your suggestions are very welcome. I didn't consider the design from that angle. You are the best!

One of my longest held fantasies is that some day people will realize that any space vehicle must move freely in AT LEAST 3 dimensions, and probably 4 or more....That where there is no gravity there is no up or down....That outside our solar system the earth metrics of time, speed, and distance are meaningless....That they have to harvest energy from space, but also be shielded from unknown debris and radiation....

About this community

This is a Community for Digital Artists. Every two weeks, we will announce themes for you to showcase your work. We will also announce some specific types of contest - colorisation, photo manipulation or pure illustration. Check the post at the top of the General Discussions Forum for the current active themes. All skill levels and abilities are accepted - we're all about the fun of Digital Art at the Chop Shop. Entries with the most 'Plus One's' and Shares will be deemed the winners, and may be selected by Moderators to become the Community Banner. We want to promote and encourage artistic talent and creativity, showcase our Community to the largest possible audience, and help beginners to find their feet in the world of Digital Art. Feel free to request themes by posting in the Theme Discusson Forum; and please check out our Guidelines regarding personal promotion / spam.

Kudos to +Robert Muensterman whose excellent colourized 'vette has been selected as our latest banner.  Congratulations Bob!  Sorry about the crop, unfortunately it's a Google thing.

Apologies to anyone who has been troubled by reshare notifications - I was just putting together a personal collection of my favourites from Chop Shop without realising that people got notifications about them! Sorry if you were irritated by that!

My husband's favourite of all the images I've done. The dress is a photo painted over, the rest is illustration.

An old acrylic painting, but one of my favourites, so I thought it worth sharing here.
