Astronaut 1.1

This would be the first of six. This also show the title. I was also inspired by a lot of vintage space illustrations of the past.

The Return of Saturn

This is a continuation of the Astronaut series. Something different than previous paintings. This is more of sequential narrative of a new astronaut embarking on a journey. The Return of Saturn...
I lightly pencil in a general composition.
Detailed shot of the descent to Saturn.
Next I come in with my darks, I lightly block in areas my "key" areas

Here is where I'm at now. I will try to chisel out the astronaut next.
