It’s Friday afternoon and I’m home so yay for that. It’s time for a flashback so yay for that as well.
The space age set was an homage to pulp science fiction stories and movies. They don’t have a huge regard for actual science and thus would probably be better qualified as science fantasy. There’s just something fun about the retro look. The Rayguns & Rocketships kickstarter won me over almost on the look of it alone.
We start our trip down asteroid memory lane with Barnaby. If I had to pick a role for him, it would be a space fleet cadet, ready to serve. My favorite element is the glass faceplate effect.
Here’s the comparison to the original. Barnaby has clearly lost some weight in five years. The original piece had Barnaby saluting. I tried to go for that again in the new piece, but it looks more like he’s shielding his eyes from the light as he looks at something in the distance.
That’s all for this week. See you next Friday for another reveal.
