Astronauts by michaelkutsche Astronauts by michaelkutsche
This is a commissioned piece I did for "Neo York", a collaborative art book project by Freestyle Collective [link] and IdN [link] , to be released in the next couple of months. Completely done in Corel Painter X. I truly believe that an artwork should speak for itself, it has to work even if the viewer doesn't read an instruction manual or the biography of the artist.
Curious about your interpretations of the image!

Edit: Many thanks to :iconctjemm: and :icontaenaron: for the DD! And also big thanks to all the people who took the time to write all those amazing little stories around the image, it was such a cool experience to read through them!

What might be the goal of these Astronauts? The interpretation of the image is completely up to you. Astronauts by *michaelkutsche for sure is an awesome image that deserves more attention! ( Suggested by OneFreeInternet and Featured by taenaron )

A powershot mixed with a massive pack of positive energy has been

delivered directly with this piece, I can feel my hands vibrating from

the impact. Wonderful job, you just keep up with the stellar work.

By the year 3026, Great Danes have been selectively bred to monstrous proportions. Up ahead of these guys, out of view, is the worlds largest dog. He's roughly the size of a Brontosaurus, and his name's Muhammad. And these guys are taking him out for walkies. Guess what's in the bags.

They have hundreds of balloons on their backs... so, they are going into the stratosphere and landing on a city in the clouds. :)

Let's see. The scene probably depicts a futuristic setting (judging by the nature of the buildings), but at the same time poverty and harshness of life is also present - a cruel weather, and the constructions don't seem especially well ventilated. The cigarette that the foreground figure smokes points to the low living standards, his build and the weight he carries on his back suggest a hard working person, and the number of satchels he attaches to his clothes make it clear that this man is not doing this job for the day, but rather has been doing it for a long time and is quite efficient at it. Another point to notice here is the number of people present in the background, all of which seem to be doing the same thing. My best guess is that this man right here is a lost astronaut, maybe after a mission gone awfully wrong he found himself in this harsh planet, and with no clear way out of this trouble he decided to switch jobs, and be more useful as a human carrier - a job well paid since goods are hard to transfer by vehicles on this icy ground, and no other life forms are up to the challenge.
