From November '53
More 3D work....I really like this one. When I started this project, I figured I could just do a "collection" cover and just mention these stories, although I didn't plan on doing anything set this early in the timeline.
Oddly enough, I've gotten inspired by this early pre-warp period and it'll be weird to finally get to more familiar territory. This was just supposed to be a brief prologue to the later era, but it's really come alive and I keep getting idea's for more covers for this era.
This one's for you Chesley Bonestell wherever you are.
