Here is the second illustration done for Square-Enix's Artjam #2, a mandatory art assignment i've put in place last year for the art team. The goal is to encourage our little crew to improve their creative skills and refresh their souls while working hard on our game productions. The subject this time was: HOMESICK.
When i think of home, my family and friends come obviously to my mind, however there is something consistent that followed us from Toamasina to France, even to Mali. You can find a lot of cheap semi-precious stones in Madagascar and as far as i can remember, we always had some beautiful geodes displayed at home. I wanted to use them in a different context, indeed, space seems like the ultimate step in Mankind's exploration of its surroundings and my guess is that it'll affect a lot of the early explorers, both mentally and physically. Being homesick will probably take a whole lot more meaning then :)
