Holy crap this took forever to finish.

Copic markers and Deleter #4 on 100lbs Strathmore Heavyweight Drawing paper.

If anyone's interested, the sky is drawn with BV00, BV02, BV04, and BV08. The nebula are V06, V09, RV04, BG10, BG18, Bg45, and C5, C7 for the "void" areas. And I splattered some opaque white over the sky. My Sakura pen crapped out on my, so it's copic opaque white instead of sakura jelly pen. I think it turned out pretty good.

This is the most ambitious thing I've tried to date, and I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.

This came out great, kits.  I'm especially impressed with how well Luna pops against the background.

Thanks~

I'm glad I used BV instead of B for the sky. It made a huge difference.

Nice detailed information on what was used  to make it. And simply wonderful shading done with all those, too! Possibly the finest piece I've seen so far done with pens and similar.

Beautiful!  I actually get a very 'Andy Price' vibe from the art style here.  And I mean that in a very good way.  :D

I have indeed been heavily influenced by his style. It helps we basically use the same media as well. Well, he has a lot more media he's good with, but he uses alcohol markers a lot. That's basically all I do these days.

Thanks~

In mathematics[edit]

91 is:

  • the twenty-seventh distinct semiprime and the second of the form (7.q).
  • triangular number.
  • hexagonal number,[1] one of the few such numbers to also be a centered hexagonal number.[2]
  • centered nonagonal number.[3]
  • centered cube number.[4]
  • square pyramidal number, being the sum of the squares of the first six integers.[5]
  • the smallest positive integer expressible as a sum of two cubes in two different ways if negative roots are allowed (alternatively the sum of two cubes and the difference of two cubes): 91 = 63 + (−5)3 = 43 + 33. (See 1729 for more details). This implies that 91 is the second cabtaxi number.
  • the smallest positive integer expressible as a sum of six distinct squares: 91 = 12 + 22 + 32 + 42 + 52 + 62. The only other ways to write 91 as a sum of distinct squares are: 91 = 12 + 42 + 52 + 72 and 91 = 12 + 32 + 92.
  • the smallest pseudoprime satisfying the congruence 3n ≡ 3 mod n.[6]
  • repdigit in base 9 (1119).
  • palindromic in bases 3 (101013), 9, and 12 (7712).
  • the fourth composite number in the 11-aliquot tree. The aliquot sum of 91 is 21 within the aliquot sequence (91,21,11,1,0).

The decimal equivalent of the fraction 191 can be obtained by using powers of 9.

In science[edit]

Ninety-one is also:

Very nice composition, great lighting on the clouds and Luna, and beautiful night sky.
You really outdid yourself on this one, kits!

I think you did really well on this piece :).

The stars are incredibly detailed, the clouds are wonderful, and the central figure - Luna - draws the viewer's attention, and looks clean and crisp.

I'm not sure if I've mentioned it before, but your style reminds me of Andy Price's art, which I also admire.

I do use Price for a lot of references. Aside from loving his style, he's one of the few people who produces really amazing traditional art, and just about the only one I know of who does so using alcohol markers.
