Special thanks to Digital Heavens' Stewart Wood for the resources in his "Horizon" file.
Two cosmonauts in deep space suitstransfere between the 2 interstellar ships that have delivered them into orbit around a new world.

Modeled and rendered in Lightwave 10, with additional work in Photoshop. Thanks for having a look!

Okay, as always I am amazed by your skill.

But I really have to point out that my first impression was...OUCH! The poor guy bonked his noggin on that rock...

Also reminds me of a great chat I had with Bill Keith once about the freaky weird weather patterns you get might living on a world with rings - a band of perpetual shadow (and thus cooler air) in the tropics would, I think, lead to some pretty windy days....

this idea of capsules for cosmonauts - awesome.
it needs shoulder-mounted harpoon cannon
and solar panels
or solar-wind sails

A flattering render indeed for the classic Cold War spacefaring vehicle.

In zero gee, there is no need for legs. making a simple cylinder for the lower body vastly simplifies the suit mechanics, and allows the feet to be used to control pedals for the thruster system.

MAWS like that have other advantages as well, like no need to undergo depressurization before donning the suit.

Indeed. Zero time prebreathing is an enormous advantage. True off-the-cuff or emergency EVAs are actually possible, for example.
