This spaceman image is totally self-indulgent. I was mainly inspired by the movie ‘2001 A Space Odyssey’. The main idea was to have a spaceman floating in space next to something dream like or surreal. So I decided to have butterflies coming out of his oxygen supply.
Above is the rough sketch
Here’s the watercolour image. I am not totally happy with the outcome of spaceman because blue is such a hard colour to paint with. So I am going to redo this image using pencil and digital. Then I can try out lots of different colour schemes.
