Very cool, Mr. Xenomurphy. It is a poor human indeed that doesn't feel a sense of loss when a hero of Neil Armstrong's caliber goes down. Thanks for dedicating your time and expertise to such worthy man. My wife's family was born and raised near his hometown of Wapakoneta, Ohio, and she graduated from high school there, so it has definitely been a somber time in my household. Seeing your tribute really put a smile on her face.
My favorite story about Mr. Armstrong is when he caved that dudes face in for calling him a liar and saying the landing was faked. Knowing what the early astronauts braved in the name of space exploration makes them nothing less than heroic (we'll, maybe a little coo-coo as well). Lovely tribute, the footprints are such a perfect touch.~H
Niel was an incredible man. I do love that you've used your own sig fig in the tribute. Subtle. Otherwise, the use of the vent tiles underneath the footprints is a great technique for "moon shoe" prints. Lovely work!
At first I thought you were just changing your Siggy, but then I heard the news on the radio. He was an early inspiration of mine, and although I didn't chase my dream of going to space, I always push myself, hoping to one day become a pioneer in what I strive for.
He Was One of The Greatest Pioneers And Explorers of all Time.
We Will All Miss Him.
