Ytterbium: Sci-Fi Convention artwork

A few of years ago, I helped my fried Judith Lewis with some graphics for Dysprosium, the 66th National Science Fiction Convention, in London - also known as Eastercon.

2018 sees a new convention, returning to a similar theme entitled Ytterbium, which Judith asked me to work on once again with some graphics.

I focused on Science Fiction and the element ytterbium as my inspiration, trying to provide enough elements for the convention graphics. Starting with the logo, I followed up with a photo-real illustration, using actual reference shots of ytterbium to create a fantasy planet. After this, I created a more illustrated style, with the focus astronaut floating on a chunk of ytterbium in some kind of nebulous crystalline void.

And note that, rather than illustrate an astronaut, I made use of my 3D printed Catastronaut model, who graciously posed for me and gave me exactly what I needed for the work.
