Stars in their eyes.

Have you heard that when you live in zero gravity for extended periods of time, you’re eyeballs start to squish?  That’s amazing!  I’m a pretty big fan of all-things-spacey, but this is news to me.  Not good news, I guess, but still interesting…

So, I assume that any career spacers would need robot eyes pretty soon.  I sketched this guy out this morning, inspired by the need for my space-suited characters to have mechanical lenses instead of stupid, squishable, meat balls for seeing all the awesome stuff out there in the cosmos.  Also, it seemed right to give him a little cone head too.

Still loving the pillowy, fluffed-ot space suits for now.
