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.

That's a lot of Daily Deviations, sci-fi art is more popular than ever! :boogie: Nice of you to give a special spotlight to =hoevelkamp's tutorials too, while not everyone has 3Ds Max - a lot of techniques mentioned in those will also rub off onto 2D artists :)
