Hope you guys aren't too tired of the mini astronauts yet, this was my contribution the 2020 Massive Voodoo Challenge. It was a really enjoyable and low key project for me, I mean who wouldn't enjoy making a tiny astronaut in a banana suit? This is the first time I've done a satirical or comedic piece, and I hope you guys enjoy it (and most of you should understand the reference). At face value I think the situation is rather comedic as is, but doing a satire of something that was already satirical in nature was definitely interesting- I will admit that I chuckled a few times making it. The visor reflection freehand was a bit of a test of patience but well worth it in the end. I did have a whole story written up for it with a lot of layers to peel away (pun intended), but it is too long to fit here, so if you are interested or haven't seen it the post is still floating around on FB an IG.

Anyway, I hope you guys enjoy it. Let me know what you think, and thanks for taking a look!

    love the concept. i give u silver cause to me it lacks some kind of impact. but here it is a very personal feeling. i think taht the concept is great but i dont find the link with the astronaut character. looks like two things mixed for no reason. i mean. just the banana with no astroaut would transmit the concept better to me. beside thsi is one of my favourites of the contest
