||This is the remaining cards I sent in for the "Space Adventures" Trade taking place here, hosted by Pabkins.
These ones are both loosely Bowie inspired (sorry, you're gonna get a lot of that from me...)
- "Floating in a Most Peculiar Way" - was done with Watercolors and micronpens
This was just something that came to mind while sketching and listening to Bowie's Space Oddity. I always liked that line "I'm stepping through the door and I'm floating in a most peculiar way" I tried to focus on the positive wonderment of the man looking out in the vastness of space rather than the rest of the song where everything about his space journey starts to go wrong. It wasn't meant to look like him, either. It's just the feeling/image I get when I hear that line. Also I imagined this guy much further out in space than the doomed major Tom from the song.
- "Misadventures in Space" - was done with a brush pen and acrylic paints
This one was inspired by some of the imagery from Bowie's "Blackstar," but also take inspiration in the styling and humor of the drawing, from the the game over scenes from the old Don Bluth dragon's lair games.
I imagined this guy being too stubborn to stop and ask for space directions, dying from essentially a wrong turn!
