The Red Planet

I visited wonderful Insilico Mars, again, today…

… I love this place! I can spend hours wandering around, searching out stunning imagery. For someone whose human was raised on the awesome art of the likes of Chris Foss and Jim Burns, these backgrounds are like falling back into the scifi book covers the human fell so in love with…

… all that’s really missing is a huge spaceship, hanging in the alien sky…

… but that’s just to make them more like 1970’s scifi cover art, even without spaceships, these backgrounds create marvellous compositions…

… they could still, easily, be book covers, evoking wonderful tales of life on barren worlds…

… where the technology is all that keeps the harsh environment survivable…

… and people dream of lives in sweeter places.
