Quick Demo sketch done for my mentorship student. Let's call this a badass collab! Once I gave him the brief and some directions, Alberto did a great job with the 3d base, then I took it, finished a bit and rendered as a demo for materials and lighting in keyshot/photoshop.

Brief:
Just one life is not enough to discover the whole space, that's why this old gentleman is wearing a special mech-suit to extend his life.
Once the body dies, the AI, installed in the suit, replace the brain role using all the data recorded during the entire life of the astronaut, keeping his personality as well.

Check out his own final artwork here: https://www.artstation.com/artwork/LKnkk, so proud of what he did and how much he learned with this.
