[D154] Star Rider (Foreigner) by RetSamys [D154] Star Rider (Foreigner) by RetSamys
I challenge myself to do one sketch every day. Click here to read about it.
I stole a ride on a passing star
Not knowing where I was going
How near or how far
Through years of light, lands of future and past
Until the heavenly gates
Were sighted at last

Starrider, rider, rider
Take me to the stars
Starrider, rider, rider
Show me where you are

Holy smack this looks awesome.
And by that, I mean an awesome thing to do if you're an intergalactic badass! :iconbadassplz:

But really it's a cool animation too.
That song sounds like it might be cool too. I should go to that link now.

Commenting on behaf of :iconprojectcomment:´s tag line. My tag was "journey", so I very soon chose this your work to comment on.

I like apparent sense of motion captured in this piece. Not only the forward motion of star but also moving flames on the surface of star. I think that those moving flames make the star look more dynamic and they improve the picture. Forward motion looks good too and for simple picture like this one, I think that it´s realistic enough.

Also, riding astromaut looks so funny to me, dunno why. Maybe thanks to those reins.:) That was really good idea.:)

Overall expression is good, I like how much you managed to achive with only two colours. And the idea of riding a star is really interesting itself. Good work.:)

your tag: surprise

I finally got around to doing the tag!

Thank you for leaving such a lovely comment.
I wasn't sure about the astronout until the very end of the process! I would have made the star without the rider. I am so glad it worked out this way.
I think I could have made the tail better. :shrug:

Cool!  That astronaut's boots must be made of real sturdy stuff if that star's not burning his feet.

Haha, thanks! I don't think it would make much of a difference if the feet have better protection. I'm more concerned about the rope holding the star. I need one like that!

Wait... you are referring to the guy on the star, not to me, right? Did I forget something?

No not you. :XD: The dude on the star. He's late, so he took a star.

He shows up...

Hey, babes, look at my sweet ride.

You know, it's one of the hottest vehicles available. =) You have to be really... cool... to ride it. Talking about hydrogen fuel! =D
