A new take, Leonov on the Mon

I decided to try a new take on one of my favourite renders, for the second edition of the book “N-1 For the Moon and Mars”.

I moved all the key elements closer together, and closer to the camera. The result is less realistic, but perhaps more striking.

I studied astronomy at University College London, but failed to get my degree. For many years pre-internet, I ran the bulletin board "Starbase 1", which is why you will frequently see me referring to myself as that! I was on the board of the IAAA. I operate exclusively in digital formats using many different software packages. Most often Lightwave 3d, Vue, Gaea, and Affinity Photo. I also enjoy oddball graphics packages like Xenodream, Amberlight, and others.

I'm particularly interested in the early Soviet space program, and I have served as a consultant on that subject.
