About the work: My idea for this piece was to depict an image that represents the completion of the Psyche mission. Although this mission will not be sending astronauts to the asteroid, nor is the asteroid small enough to fit in the palm of a human, it is a symbolic piece. It symbolizes the ultimate goal of finally reaching the asteroid. I decided to make the asteroid illuminate a colorful array, which I chose to be colors similar to those of the Psyche Inspired logo. This piece started with a rough sketch, which I then refined into a draft and ultimately a final version. I painted it digitally using Procreate and a variety of different brush textures and colors.
