Emulating the illustrations found in the Sci-Fi digests of the 50s and 60s. A 'stripped down' Vue 6 render postworked in PS6. Cavorite Sphere modelled with Vue primitives (courtesy of Chipp Walters great tutorials http://www.altuit.com/webs/altuit2/VueTraining/Vodcasts.htm). Thanks for looking.

Oh top hole, old chap!!
Splendid rendition of the Sphere... you can almost see Edward Judd and Lionel Jeffries looning about in their diving suits.
Briliant work!

The post work effects are very convincing indeed. Difficult to see any 3D tools in there at all.

Excellent - one of my favourite Well stories. You've captured that old-fashioned futurism look well.

Nice presentation! Should it be named "First Man On The Moon"?

Wow! Love the post effects. Very cool and different from you other techniques. B&W works here. Keep it up!

Actually, thecytron, the title IS correct, it's "The First Men IN the Moon". If you ever get the chance to read Wells' novel, you'll understand why the preposition "IN" is used instead of "ON".

Onto the image itself, I approve of the cross-hatched sepia-toned lines. It really gives the impression it's a hand illustration from the 1890s.

Sincerely,

Bill

Definitely a briliant suimulation of a late-50s/early-60s SF digest. I've got enough of them, I should know!
Offhand, if I were trying to place this as a "real" magazine, I'd've guessed GALAXY Magazine rather than ANALOG, but only because Analog didn't do classic reprints. This has a very strong feel of John Schoenherr's Analog BW work.

Another piece of VERY good work! Aside from the brilliant simplicity of the composition, you did an amazing job on the sketch effects. I would love some more deails about how you achieved these effects, paticularly the layering of the hatching/cross hatching of the hills behind the capsule. I must say, I'm very impressed by the whole thing: text placement, sketch effects, and the modeling on the sphere. Bravo!

Super composition in this. I found the cross-hatch effect most interesting as it appears (at least in the preview) light is shining onto the canvas as if you were viewing the open book in a dark room with only an evening sun to illuminate it.

Nice.
