when I was a child I always loved looking up into the heavens. I always knew I wanted to be an artist, but astronomy was the only other field I ever considered devoting my life to....
then I took an astronomy course in college and there was way too much math so I dropped it.

that is fuck'n hot.. I really like this one... Yeah I was going to sign up for an astronomy class too.. BIG MISTAKE.. My friend told me it was all hard core math... that is such a bummer.. it should be something enjoying and fun.. *shrug*.. guess you have to get in a hippy class for that..

Dude this is AWESOME! I love it.
It's funny you mention that about astronomy Andrew I also had the same experience as you...I wanted to be an astronomer and then realized that the math would kill me heheheh....so so so much math. I bet in Colorado the skies are AMAZING. There are places in PA where you can see the stars but I bet in Colorado it looks awesome. I used to go out almost every weekend and bring a spotting scope and look at jupiter, saturn, pleides, and the andromeda galaxy mostly. I actually can still find the andromeda galaxy really quick I did it so many times hehe. You know an 8 inch dobsonian telescope is only like 400 bucks...man you are getting me thinking about it again hehe. All that to say this portrait is awesome and I share the same love you have for the night sky.

i love it when you do a lot of portraits that are truer to what you see in the mirror, and then you drop something like this on us. very nice indeed.
ha ha. EVERYBODY i knew in school dropped that class.

hmm there never is a smiley for what I want to express!
I need one that grabs ahold of a brick wall and slams its head up against it...repeatedly!

An astronomer knows facts.....figures....and numbers. But an artist knows the true beauty.

i wonder what its like in that galaxy....

Ditto, I was a geology major at one point...
Very nice painting, the yellow energy skin is really neat looking... Has a transcending the human form feel about.

I don't think I've ever seen anything so beautiful in my life for self portraits. Its paintings like this that make me want to redo everything I've ever done just so I might have something close to 1/100th of this pieces beauty. damn

:jawdrop: im speechless and teethless.....

Thanks for the inspiration Android! We are all made of stars.
For those of you who still want to ponder the beauty of the cosmos, without having to learn the math... follow the links.

man that is fuckin original, how'd you come up with that design! Thanks dad.

BRILLIANT AND CAPTIVATING!!
I agree with Keyth. It's cool to see these sudden deviations from the more common approaches you will use. It's hard to not keep looking at this portrait, I guess thats because even though this is a small image, it is very vast.
I need a thousand more thumbs.

lovely, exploring other dimensions - did you see it before you did it, or did it just happen?
March 29th, 2003, 01:59 PM
The best pic since many others, great god, nice pic, Andrew!

I agree with everything said, it's a wonderful image. I'm wondering what you did to create such an effect.

One need not be an astronomer to enjoy the night sky, though I too went through that phase when I was younger...
Used to play games looking for satellites at night by the bonfire up at the cottage, now thats something I miss...
Any way, this is the single most brilliant piece of work I have seen in a VERY long time, congrats on a job very well done.

Holy carp. That is the BEST. THING. EVER.
Yeah, I love it. I dunno how you managed to get it to look so much like space and everything.. That's awesome.
