This project came to me courtesy of the #sciencechannel, lol. And Marvel Comics. NOT the MCU.
I wanted to show the Silver Surfer contemplating riding space/time via gravity waves. And where would he find the best ones? At the event horizon of a black hole.
I’m not going to lie; I did a few thumbnails for this one. Multiple light sources, whether I wanted to stylize or try to get more realistic. At one point I was going to simply have him sitting on his board as a smaller figure in front of a feeding blackhole. I decided against that.
I finally just had him standing on a asteroid. It worked better for me. Hope you like it as well.
