Since earliest times, the red star in the night skies has been noticed and catalogued by humanity. As science began to advance, the perception of this mysterious star changed from a mythological god into a real, neighbouring world that just might be like ours. That concept was a catalyst to a whole new genre of art. Mars became everyone’s favourite planet!
This live webinar examines some of the excellent examples of digital art depicting the Red Planet and we’ll have artists talking about their respective works. We’ll learn how they created some incredible vistas that are almost indistinguishable from the many real photographic references that we are now lucky to have.

We’ll look at:-

• History and facts about Mars
• Stunning illustrations of Mars vistas by Kees Veenenbos (created with Terragen)
• Creating a Mars base illustration with Christian Hecker (using Vue)
• Illustrations from the Russian artist Alex Niko (Mojoworld)
• Techniques artists have used in creating these scenes

Join us in our journey to discover the Spirit of Mars!

The Art of Kees Veenenbos

Christian Hecker (Tigaer)


Christian Hecker is a dedicated digital artist who uses VUE and Photoshop. He has formed a recurring theme through his portfolio of depicting futuristic large-scale cities and this, really, is a natural response, perhaps from growing up in the environment of the industrial landscape of East Germany, as well as being awed by the production paintings of the sci-fi movies that we all love.
