This is "on-fly" sketch for today's celebration.

Here is sample photo (http://www.spacefacts.de/mission/large/english/gagarin_yuri.htm) found somewhere in Google which I used as basis.

This is "pure" ArtRage painting - no other soft were used.

I congratulate all of you with this very good date! :):):)

A most appropriate celebration of a great and courageous man and of a fundamental milestone of mankind. Now that the two blocks politics fortunately doesn't exist anymore to pollute our judgements, all the world may fully admire Yuri (may he rest in peace) and rejoyce for his fantastic achievement!

WOW, an awsome tribute to Yuri, the first SpaceMan.

He sacrificed everything and took a chance to further mankinds ability to be in space and it eventually cost him his life. He knew that that was a chance he was taking but he did it, for us all. A great man, and the greatest spaceman. Others have followed his lead and now we have men/women in space safely thanks to him. I for one salute him, his courage, dedication and belief that mankind could work and live in

Would you have done it? um well um probably not. :confused: He did.

Thank you very much to all of you for your warm appreciation of this work.

It was very important for me to accent your attention of that date and remind about human which with great help and selflessness of many Soviet engineers did right thing for people to remember.
