February is shaping up to be a busy month at the International Space Station. In addition to a visit by the space shuttle Atlantis and the delivery of the European Space Agency's science module Columbus, and the departure and deorbit of Russia's supply ship Progress 27 to make room for the arriving Progress 28, there's the first ever launch of the ESA's own supply vessel, the Automated Transfer Vessel, named Jules Verne. The ATV is an uncharismatically cylindrical piece of space hardware, but you might come to love it if you download and assemble the paper model available with instructions at the ESA site.
Here you can see I've moved up from pencil to ink, resulting in much bolder colour. The blue background is pencil, though. I still like the ice surface effect it gives. The McGill Martlets logo is boosted from the CIS website and Photoshop'd on. I see I forgot to shade the face, which I'd do in pencil. I intentionally cheated and left off the stripe at the hem of the jersey so as not to crowd the design. The figure is just a little too tall as the result of eyeballing instead of measuring, but I could fix it by shortening the stick. I have to learn to draw wrinkles. Ultimately I want to get to the point of turning photos into table hockey players. Next team, Concordia Stingers.
