CHALLENGE: What Happens on the Moon

Last week was the 40th anniversary of the Apollo 11 crew returning back to Earth.

Therefore, we want you to create a scene showing what happened on the moon during the Apollo 11 mission while the cameras were off; what did we not see? What did the astronauts not tell us about?

Be creative - your scene does not need to be entirely realistic (in fact it can be downright ridiculous if you want). For example, you could pixel a scene where Neil Armstrong is sitting on the moon's surface with a laptop and logging onto Pixel Joint.

Don't forget to check out the Apollo 11 Wikipedia article for further information on the moon landing.

Canvas Size - Max 120 x 180. Either horizontal or vertical.
Colours - Max 46. Use only colours from the palette provided below, you may use transparency. Colours are taken from this image.



Transparency - Optional.
Animation - Optional.

Just think about the way the light would hit that shape.  Determine a light direction first.

Who died on the moon.

My WIP, would like some response to how it looks, if its worth finishing etc.

Its a play on words, I heard from a friend that there was infact another person who landed on the moon. Was there? who is he? and why have we only found out now?

I'm done :D

I was going to have 3 aliens pointed guns at the astronaut when he was in his pajamas at night, but I decided to do a Bazooka (left), Flamethrower (middle) [you can kinda see the small blue flame], and Ray Gun (right).
I know I suck majorly, and I'm trying to improve :)

Dhr. Bosch, thanks for reminding us of Méliès!
The film is here, must see! And, well, to my everlasting shame, I had never seen it... so thanks again!

So many entries already... are you guys in a hurry? Seriously, all pieces in the gallery so far could really use a few more hours of hard work.

While we're there, I've been searching for the original images of the classic Jules Verne 1865 books, De la Terre à la Lune and Autour de la Lune. I only found 2 so far. I may have to scan my book! ;-)

And of course, let's not forget Tintin.
I had forgotten how beautiful that cover is!

Dhr. Bosch: yes I've seen it, but it is not illustrated.
I have to disagree with you though about literature: I don't like Jules Verne. I think he was a great promoter of science, and that's important, but he was a rather poor writer, and not really that imaginative. I mean, as a writer, a storyteller. I'm afraid many will disagree though...
By contrast, I love HG Wells: he has such a strong, witty style, and really conveys an atmosphere.
The First Men in the Moon is a real masterpiece, and that brings me back on topic ;-)
I don't know of any original illustrations for that one?

Spirou: I'd prefer the left one, but since you go for realism, you should check on photographs, they are everywhere.

Waouhhhh! Look at this!

Adolf Hoffmeister, 1964, illus. for Czech trans. of Well's First Men in the Moon

There are about 10 amazing images.

Edit: found a better link, no need to go to Flickr.

There is still some work on it, but the whole thing is quite funny ^.^
You should add depth to your craters, and the moon shading is quite weird (even if the idea of the hidden part of the moon is very clever). Maybe your lunar inhabitants could be detailed...

I guess it's ok...but you're not really doing yourself any favours with that composition anyway. Maybe less straight on, maybe only show part of his face, maybe have some reflection in his visor etc...

Just remember it's always best to avoid text where possible. ie. "show don't tell". If you can in some way show the viewer visually that there are aliens then I think that would be more compelling than some text somewhere.

Also, I think maybe his mouth could be moved up a bit more too...

Well, an astronaut's helmet visor thing is typically black and very reflective. Perhaps you could add shards of black around the helmet reflecting little aliens?

That would show the aliens and make it seem like they just attacked him and broke his helmet. :D

I was originally going to do a reflection, just been practising lip syncing animation. I'll go with the reflection, methinks.
