With Thanksgiving approaching I thought this might be a nice take on things.
Maybe think about why these people are on Mars, what drove them to travel across the stars to create a new world.
Fully helmeted people are not a necessity! I want to see the personality in these guys, not just the cool outfits.
Only one, must be full figure! front, back, downview, squatting, it doesn't matter...

<LOG MAYFLOWER1 10122076> saying that making a life here is hard would be an understatement. Although the scientists had proven plants could be grown in terrariums and had theorized the genetically enhanced seeds would produce a bountiful crop they have not. Our constant fight with the elements has proven futile, our shelter holds, and power from the solar panels and winds keep us with electricity, but our stores are running short. We have had nothing fresh for months. <END>
<LOG MAYFLOWER1 11232076> We had expected contact at some point… the military had led us to believe that major alien settlements were on the other side of the planet, but that it was just a matter of time before we were found. What we had not expected was the welcome we received. Apparently some recon on us had been done over the past few months. Why they didn’t let us just die out I’ll never know… our alien neighbors aren’t quite as savage as we once thought… and having mastered the art of hunting and gathering on this dusty red rock they showed up with what one could only determine to be fresh food, (vegetable and animal matter of some sort)… so happy are we to have this peaceful contact, and an opportunity to share with the local inhabitants. The stuff doesn’t taste that bad either! <END>
<LOG MAYFLOWER1 02272077> We have been shown the correct way to cultivate our plants and crops now… and after several hunting expeditions we now know the local flora and fauna well enough to get by on our own… our new friends have made it possible for us to stay here. We are so thankful that they showed up when they did. One can only hope we have a great and prosperous future together. <END>

This could be interesting. To quite OJ, "Maybe I'll take a stab."
UPDATE: Damn Cakey, ..just....damn. Nice piece.
Chillin in my hotel room in Phoenix and I was midly inspired, so I threw down some ink on this one.
Being that I'll be shredding my head on the dunes, I probably wont see this one out.
Sand and computers don't mix, so here's my weak little sketch. Sorry Salaryman, awesome topic, just a busy time.
Some obvious anatomy issues here, I know.

Ok here's the final...
CMSAF Neil Armstrong IV , the first human to set foot on this foreign soil sits on a rock formation overlooking the red planet while envisioning the city of the future and what will ultimately become his new home.

I'm out of this one, travelling through France to see the family at the weekend and too much work before-hand. I got plenty of Mars related ideas though, maybe one day I'll get them in my sketchbook.
Good entries so far, Paolo13, nice details... but are we gonna see his feet?
vances22, hope you got stuff sorted. May have been a technical hitch, there's certainly no way I'd delete stuff even if I had the power (which I don't )

I want to do this one so bad
Between making pie and defending my dissertation, I'm gonna squeeze it in! I just can't resist...
Someone gave me this custom title and I will never, ever change it!

pencil rough, will update sometime with finished drawing, then might color (either traditionally or digitally, not sure yet)
don't have the time to finish this before the deadline, oh well
cakeypig - yours has so much character... *envy*
paolo - saw yours before you added the shroud, rocked pretty hard, i perticularly liked the gesture of the pose and the expression. can't wait to see it unveiled again
also, when you say 20 or 200 years hense, do you mean they leave for mars that year, or that this is 200 years after the settlement? changes a bit in mine which it is
