My entry for the 5th Dimension painting contest, and inaugural post on Paint & Putty!

Originally I had planned the scene to be very pulp comic-esque, but as I researched images for painting the first astronaut I got more of a hard SciFi feeling. Then I added back in the alien elements and this is what I came up with.

    Thanks guys! Roman, Thanks! You are one of my mini painting heroes! I love all your stuff but your “The Sacrifice” dio is constantly in the back of my head.

    So proud of you Ben. People should take notice that this is your very first P&P submission, and it made Editor’s Choice. Ben is very, very creative with his miniatures, so you’d be wise to follow his work closely.
