I’m Ok to Go

An illustration of a space girl

Communication Control: “VF1 Do you copy? I repeat do you copy? Are you go for launch?”
Everyone is tense. It’s been five minutes since they last heard VF1’s voice.
Mission Director: “Instruments are you sure nothing is wrong with her devices?”
Instruments Control: “As far as I can tell all instruments are green. None of her devices are failing.”
Mission Director: “That’s it, let’s pull the plug. Somebody get me the abort codes.”
Communication Control: “Wait! Wait! I’m hearing something faint!”
Mission Director: “What? What are you hearing?”
Communication Control works his instruments rapidly. He has contact but he needs to boost the signal. It didn’t take him long to fix the problem. Within a minute the loudspeakers are booming.
VF1: “Mission control this is VF1, I repeat, I’m ok to go. Do you copy? I’m ok to go.”

Illustration based off a conceptart.org CHOW prompt. I’ve been obsessed with doing some baroque designs similar to Christophe Young’s work seen here; https://www.artstation.com/artwork/VeAdZ. I figured I would try to incorporate something similar for the CHOW competition. The design is… hhhmmm, frustrating to paint. It looks cool in a sketch but rendering it is difficult.

Thanks goes to:

Thanks for all your direction.

Bonus points if you could figure out what I’m referencing in the story.

    I don't like ads. I don't think anyone likes ads. But they do play a pivotal role in our lives. In my case, ads help pay the bills. So unfortunately, advertisements will go here. The good news is that I have not set up advertisements for this website yet. Yay! But if you do want to help me out in the smallest of ways, then head over to my YouTube Channel and subscribe. Not only will you be helping me out, you will also learn a thing or two about my art! Hooray for learning!
