RIP Capt. Alan Bean, Apollo 12 Astronaut & Artist, 4th Moonwalker [4438×4633]
RIP CAPTAIN ALAN BEAN
After Apollo 16′s John Young (1930-January 5 2018), an other moonwalker, Alan Bean (1928-May 26 2018), left us. In total, 12 men walked on the moon, all during six Apollo missions between July 1969 and December 1972. Only four are still living : Apollo 17′s Harrison “Jack” Schmitt, Apollo 11’s Buzz Aldrin, Apollo 15’s David Scott and Apollo 16’s Charles Duke.

My final image (You can see the drawing and the steps below). I really like how it turned out. The style feels fresher then my typical fully rendered look.
Sci-fi art by Chris Moore (1956). Daring, dynamic angles that convey a sense of awe and scale.
