Hello,
Here is an illustration that I did for the Grand Space Opera challenge. It is an astronaut that is stranded on Mars' moon Phobos. Lightwave, Corel and PS. Thanks.

Yes, excellent small cratering on the rock surface, and dramatic composition too!

Looks great to me, reminds me of Forbidden Planet posters. Very 1950's, very nice.

Thanks you guys
In hindsight... I think the astronaut is a little too big... Could have toned him down a little. The lighting on him doesn't correspond to the angle of the wing light but I thought I'd use a little artistic license. Thanks again for the positivity!

How did you do the rock textures? Any clues would be very much appreciated!

Hey Nick,
I'll have a full res uncompressed JPEG of the surface map for ya here in a day or two for download... I'll write a little about it then if you like. Thanks.

That would be brilliant - I think they ould also work very wellas asteroid textures, (if they can be approproaitely wrapped around), I have some radar models of asteroids I have failed to texture...

Cheers,
Nick
