For those of you wondering it is in fact possible to grow potatoes on Mars but it's very dangerous and hard to do

I love it! I've not seen the movie, but I thoroughly enjoyed reading the book.

The movie only covers about a fourth to a third of the book.  It's okay, but you have to have read the book first (which you did) to understand some of the things that seem out of kilter with Weir's writing.

NICE!  I like that you took yours closer to the 'puffy' pressurized suit style [more scientifically appropriate I have learned than the slim-fit movie version.]
How did you enjoy the film?

Also matches the original suit used on the book cover before they rereleased the movie version of the book.

Um, hi again. I happened to run across another site using your image without any credit, and presumably without permission. I don't know if you care or not, but as the artist I thought you should know. There is a "rhads.de" still visible in one corner, but your signature and the rest of your dA address are cropped out.

Hi there, I love your picture! Can't wait to see the movie after reading the book! :D

Just wanted to give you a heads up: some websites are using this image without credit (or incorrectly crediting it to 20th Century Fox) and presumably without your permission. I don't know how you feel about that, but I wanted you to know.

One page from "Deadline", as of this post:
deadline.com/2015/10/the-marti…

I saw others, but I've lost the links since first seeing them.

EDIT: Huh, Deadline just swapped out your image for a screengrab of Damon and his helmet. I guess a moderator read my comment, which, funnily enough, is still "awaiting moderation." Oh well.

Не могу не порадоваться за вас)) Уже где этот арт только не мелькал, различные зарубежные издания используют его в статьях о книге и фильме и сопровождают этой картинкой) Здорово разошлась по интернетам, поздравляю. Вообще очень прусь с вашего творчества, еще кажется с 2011 или 2012 начал следить, когда увидел работы на демиарте)
Но вот книга, извините, какая-то... попсовая что ли слишком)) Несерьезная, для научной фантастики, прям как-то все слишком весело и гладко у Марка шло. Никаких там депрессий, осознания одиночества и ежесекундной возможности умереть от случайной мелочи. Но, может, я слишком многого ждал от книги)

Oh man, what a great book! You did a fantastic job of capturing Watney's character, even though we can't actually see him under that suit :XD:
But seriously, awesome job :D

Love your art! This was one of my favorite moments in the book.

Also, do you mind if I use this as a fb cover? I gave you credit and did not remove your signature either. If it is not ok you can tell me and I will change it.

Though it should have been "Ayyyyy!" On that sign, haha~!
I hope they make that part happen in the movie.

Mostly within the past two days. It was the final 125 pages today.
His sign said "Ayyyyyy!" in the book.
