Space Settlement Art Contest - Closest Approach

Closest Approach

by Jonathan Chapin
Category: Asteroid Settlements

Description: Mankind has long since established colonies on the Moon and now has expanded to asteroids in our solar system for the benefits of mining. This is one such settlement that has been created. With the presence of humans in a world that is completely self-sufficient, families begin appearing. In this scene, the asteroid is making a pass by Mars and a parent takes the time to explain and teach the "Red" planet to his daughter.

Medium/Tools Used: I've created this scene using Cinema 4d R.10 with Bodypaint for the stronauts, asteroid and planet. The stars and lights were created using Photoshop.
