Ground control to Lt. Gagarin...

April 12th 2011 was the 50th anniversary of the first manned space flight. That man was Yuri Gagarin, soviet cosmonaut, and his ship was the Vostok 1. I thought I would do a little portrait for the occasion. It has been a while since Gagarin made that first amazing trip and many have followed in his footsteps. Gagarin died in 1968 when is MiG 15 crashed during a training flight.

Nice, Tyler! I really dig the light on the face. Did you draw this on your new tablet computer? Oh hey, you could review your tablet for a blog post if you're interested!

Thanks a lot guys. Yeah Chris. I did it on my Cintiq. It isn't new though. I have had for almost a year now. It is serving me very nicely. Great idea on the review. Let me try to put my thoughts together on that.
