At the end of each month we want to inform you about general space related stuff that has happened, promote contests and show you all the daily deviations that have been given out by us last month. If you have any suggestions or proposals please let us know.

To make it short and easy: please take a look at my "Tutorial Collection". You can find it here. These guides should help you to get started with space art. Some of them are for beginners, some for advanced artists. We are constantly on the hunt for new tutorials and if you have any suggestions and links to helpful tutorials, please note taenaron or gucken.
The second collection is about resources related to space art. We try to collect as many as possible for you. Please have a look at the Resources Collection.
Check it out: #SpaceArt Enjoy the growing community there. Already a long memberlist and a growing number of regular participants. We are about to organize some interviews with some very nice artists. Keep an eye on the channel!!!

May 2009 - Daily Deviations
Swallow the Stars by LupinGoddess shows a lovely executed space frog eating all the stars and galaxies. I especially love the glowing eye and the color-scheme. You're looking for great traditional art? Then LupinGoddess is the person to visit!
ctf by teemunkle
CTF? Yay let's capture the flag! Or at least lean back and enjoy the show of this awesome executed bots fighting against each other.
Forgotten-Revisions by MeckanicalMind
A real atmospheric picture with a lot of space for your own story. What does the little guy might find when he enters the object?
Moon Patrol by pan-pks shows a nice and clean science fiction scene with a lot of love to detail.
Arrival by raybender combines a good perspective and well chosen details. The contrastful colors and the clean brushwork make this painting extraordinary.
Endzeit by N3UR0N heavily reminds me of the movie "Sunshine". There is a similar beautiful sun floating everything with light. Lean back for a moment and enjoy the warm colors on full-screen!!
Miracle.in.the.space by Matkraken is a breath-taking piece. As the artist explains in the description, life is a mixture, an opposition between joy and sadness, good and evil, life and death. This concept is represented in this balanced artwork, with a great usage of colours and subtle meanings.
Torn by MacRebisz
Suggester says: "We all have been looking at spaceart from similar angles, this one is fresh and original. The broken moon is one of the best things I've seen in our field in a long time. This has to be a DD or I'm a Gremlin."
Gremlins aren't real!
Glog Day One by feerikart
The image makes you wonder what's going on. There's a secret and the only way to find out is to follow the guy. Because of the story this picture is telling (and the harmony between the elements and colors) it definitely deserves more attention.
Real Air Force by SGA-Maddin shows how hard work pays off. Lean back and enjoy these well developed ships.
Bad Landing but everything is under control. yty2000 called the fire departement and they'll fight the fire. An image with lovely tones and a nice idea.
A-TAC Rooftop Fight by skybolt immediately catches your attention. The story of a fight between machines and mankind is old but it's not going to become boring. Especially not if it's shown in a picture like this. Take some minutes and enjoy the awesome details, such as the expressions of the faces.
Far from the city by tredowski
The artist wrote no comment and I also have no idea what, besides WOW, could be said. Enjoy this extraordinary picture!!!
Oiled , fueled and waiting. Is there anything else you could wish? Men's dreams come true because of Sallow's skill and imagination!
Far Away by thiagochackal is a very beautiful and calm scene. By looking at this piece, you can forget about time easily.
Rose Nebula by Hameed is an impressive piece of art!
Hameed is one of dA's great legends and veterans of space art. Be sure to check out his gallery, you will recognize many pieces you may have seen sometime earlier!
La soucoupe volante by MarcSimonetti shows a very unique sight of an UFO. The amount of details is just incredible and absolutely worth a DD!
Spacecraft9 by wanbao really stands out in his spaceship-series. You rarely find similar starting ships on dA. Make sure to check out his gallery!
