Welcome to the “Ethereal” issue of your free Digital Art Live magazine. In fact, it proved to be so ethereal that… it evaporated! Because we were originally envisaging an issue of ghosts and suchlike, but the spectres sadly refused to materialise. Thus we have to plead the usual excuse of the amateur ghost-hunter — “the conditions just weren’t right”.
Instead we’re pleased to present a more diffuse and dreamy take on the word ‘ethereal’. In this issue we whirl you across the luminous skies of vast science-fiction worlds, consider mistily pale and glamourously haunting portraits, peer into darkly glowing dreamlands, and end by musing on formal abstract pictures which evoke the weirdly etheric nature of electricity, atoms and quantum forces.
‘Danarogon’ uses 3D to make his beautifully stylised 2D emulations, evoking the vastness of space and huge planets.

“The reason why I make my work so colourful was, in part, a rebellion against the monochromatic ‘dull and grey’ near-future science fiction that now dominates the genre quite a bit. I wanted to make a style of my own, something dreamlike in a sense.”
Lyndsey is a long-time user of Poser and DAZ, and is known for making superbly ethereal and glamourous portraits.

“My breakthrough image was “Temptress” … I uploaded it to DAZ [and found it had been selected as] the main image on the home page! It became one of the “faces of DAZ” … Then, it was selected for the art book Exotique 3 from Ballistic.”
Marcos is inspired by strange etherial quantum dynamics, and the spectral forces that bring our electronics to glowing life.
VUE | SCI-ART
“I’m in love with physics and electronics … I seek to artistically reproduce the concepts [in my Vue pictures]. Scientific concepts such as Quantum Fields, the Quantum Structures of Matter, the Atomic Universe, and the forces of Electromagnetism.”
