Finally got around to coloring my header. I had forgotten how much of this image was going to be in the coloring. I sort of just kept seeing the line art as a finished version, without realizing that my mind was automatically filling in the rest of the impact. Pretty happy with how it came out.
It occurred to me while looking through Buck Rogers comics and old space men images, that in the 1930s, when people were trying to visualize the concept of an astronaut, they basically just latched onto the look of aviation pilots at the time. I guess it was only logical that if pilots dressed like that while flying planes, then they would dress similarly while flying space ships. Fairly ingenious actually, I'm now led to wonder what our image of astronauts would be if Nasa had garbed our men and women in brown, old aviation colored space suits.
