Title: Guardian Rofaz
Overview:

Outside of the atmosphere there’s a galaxy that contains a planetary cave, which has minerals and elements that can be used to power biological space ships. Rofaz, a genetically engineered artificial intelligence, which has components from human DNA, guards the caves. Part man, machine, and animal, this creature contains reptilian properties. This gives him an acute sense of smell.

With this trait, Rofaz can identify cave intruders that might seek to steal the power the cave contains. Without these stones, Earth would fall behind in the space exploration race. To move forward in genetically engineered research, we need access to new resources. With this… we will advance to the next level.

Title: Black Hole
Overview:

Did you ever wonder where your favorite pair of socks go when they disappear?  What about when your childhood cat Mittens ran away and you haven’t seen him since?  We’re constantly losing things that seem to have disappeared, although they may have just been sucked up in the vacuum cleaner.  Black hoes in space remind me of vacuums because they powerfully “suck up” anything in their path.  Like the keys to your house, planets or stars could easily disappear from your eyes as if they were never there.  Although, in a situation like losing your cat, it is probably less likely that he’s lost in a vacuum bag.

If we don’t have the sun to grow the trees, then we don’t have trees and if we don’t have trees we don’t have oxygen, then we can’t breathe. If we cannot breathe, we cannot live. This suit is not meant to last forever, just like the sun. With the right ideas and resources, people should be able to live in these suits for approximately 1-4 years. By then, the people of the future should have life figured out. Sacrifice the few, to save the many.

Title: Stars Are Beyond
Overview:

The human hand is used to create amazing things, advancements in science and technology. The sky isn’t the limit, only your imagination is. If we reach beyond our atmosphere, to find the cure for depression or suicidal thoughts, we will have won a great war.

Most people with depression can use a good friend or an encouraging message to help them through everything. My art isn’t supposed to have a flashy sophisticated meaning it connects with you. So no matter what, I’ll know I tried to inspire people to go beyond their limits beyond Earth and push for their true potential. So I hope I inspired you and many others to greatness. My inspiration came from teen issues today: Depression, Anxiety, Shyness, Hatred, and Loneliness. So as I convey in my artwork: Life is too short, so reach for the stars and most importantly, STAY DANDY BABY!

Title: Rings
Overview:

The greatly anticipated images from N.A.S.A.’s deep-space satellite “Traveler” were finally received on February 8, 2018. The images were meant to depict the surface of Saturn, the sixth planet from the Sun, well known for its massive rings. However, upon viewing the images, a startling but exciting discovery was made. An object can be seen hovering over the surface of the planet. Based on what was previously known about the gas giant’s planetary attributes, nothing like this has ever been discovered before. The object of pure black is a peculiar shape. What could it be? The public announcement made by N.A.S.A claimed that the object is most likely “space debris,” but these images make you wonder. Alien spaceship? Or is it merely a fluke of photography?

Title: Extra-Terrestrial
Overview:

I’m submitting my artwork entitled “Extra-Terrestrial”. This represents a life form from outside the earth or its atmosphere. While completing this project, we had the freedom to choose any media we wanted my media choice was watercolors. I was inspired by imagery that I came across while looking for science fiction artists. I painted this extra-terrestrial being because I was intrigued by the idea of some other life form, such as the alien, actually being present somewhere far beyond our galaxy. The life form pictured would be curious, harmless, and overall an easygoing green guy. I went with the green alien stereotype but there are various other shades of my creation depending upon the planet he originated from.

Title: Stolen
Overview:

I drew my picture because I wanted to draw something with planets. Saturn, the biggest planet, is my favorite. The other four are just the usual planets: Earth, Jupiter, and one I haven’t named yet. The colors are slightly the same as what they’d usually be, but earth is turned inside out on the color palette. It’s meant to be like that. It’s an illusion. I drew it because I wanted something I haven’t seen before – something that would catch someone’s eye. The girl is being cut open by an alien; planets are surrounding her head as if she were dizzy. The artwork is entitled Stolen.

Title: BILL
Overview:

A creature more frightening than anything you’ve seen appeared outside in the night. A third eye upon its wrinkled brow opened and the translator he held began to speak English. The creature surprised me and said, “Hi my name is Bill.”

The creature Bill is a 3D model created with Sculptris, a program we use in visual art. Bill was conceived with inspiration as a Yoda prototype with the ears. Then I began making horns on it along the skull with a third eye. I’ve decided to make bone and indentions in his cranium looking like a brain. This made him look more alien-like, which is how Bill became to be.

If I were to continue the story… Bill landed in a place called Earth where he met a human and he asked for help. He needed his ship repaired and recycled banana peels for fuel.

Title: Blast Off
Overview:

For my Science Fiction Project I chose to illustrate outer space. My illustration has three planets, which includes Jupiter, Saturn, and a purplish planet I made up. My illustration also has a red and white rocket ship blasting through space set on a mission to find other life forms in the galaxy. The background is black and has blue, purple, red, yellow, and orange dots to add some flavor, so the background is not too plain. Those dots are stars, moons, and other planets in the galaxy. I made the planet purple because my favorite color is purple. So I decided to just add all of it together for my final artwork entitled Blast Off.

Entry Number: #1745
Title: Abduction
Overview:

Abducted from Earth, this kitty is in a terrifying place. She bristles at the sight of her abductor. She has been experimented on, and this may be why she looks a little different than the other cats on Earth. Her abductors have affectionately named her “Mother Nature.” They have observed her being friendly and feisty, much like the nature of Earth. They were baffled to learn these creatures were commonly kept as pets in human homes. Her abductors hope to take more animals from Earth to observe them. Mother Nature has by far been the most interesting and exciting creature the abductors have taken from Earth.
