My background as a 3D technical director and my love for image processing come to great use in the processing of space images. I have always been fascinated by space exploration. It is almost the only chance to explore and see something truly new. More than once I have startled myself when realizing that I was the first person ever to see the vista that I just assembled on my screen. A world never before witnessed reaching out trough time and space and LCD glass. I hope that sharing my images can recapture a little of that feeling.
Venera 13 landed on Venus on 1 March 1982 and returned the first color images from the surface of Venus. In this artist's concept, the Venera 13 images provide the texture of the basalt-covered ground, leading to the shadow of a smoky volcano. The spacecraft is a rendering of a 3D model.
