Too bad the 1977 Toddlers in Space initiative never went anywhere. :(

This is wonderful. The lighting, the detail (amazing use of reference, by the way) and the mood all work to convey a wonder and enlightening feeling. The fact that it's a small boy in the suit only reinforces this idea.

Great job, Mike.

OH. MY. GOD. This is beautiful. The color gradation on the sun is magnificent. The shine that complements it is also awesome.
