Illustration of the Week #33: Mars Curiosity Rover
This is a two week
This weeks topic is Mars Curiosity Rover
. So the Curiosity rover landed successfully on the surface of Mars less than 24 hours ago! This is a very exciting moment in science, as the rover is much more advanced than any previous ones placed on Mars. Your task is to illustrate the rover--but it must be in a scene of sort sort. This can be as simple as placing it in a Martian landscape, or can be anything else such as it being deployed, a team of scientists testing it in a lab on Earth or whatever comes to mind.
This challenge will require some research on the design of the rover, as you are required to paint it in it's existing design. As always, Wikipedia is a great starting point:
You may also have to research Mars, and how the landscape will be different. For example sunsets on Mars are BLUE (if you want to know why, go do some research, that's a real stress point of this challenge):
Have fun and don't be intimidated if this is very different from what you usually paint, the whole point is to break comfort zones and learn
