Astronaut (Character) - Influence Map

From left to Right :-
Images 1, 2 & 4. Are just a variety of images of astronauts I found.
Image 3. Is the uniform that an astronaut wears.
Image 5. Buzz Light year - The reason why I put this image on my influence map was because instead of having a human astronaut I could look at the idea of my character actually being a toy instead.
Image 6. Neil Armstrong - Looking at the lives of astronauts to help with creating my own back story for my character. 


  1. okay, so the attic is at the very top of the house (nearest the stars). Maybe your 'astronaut' is a 'wannabe' astronaut - a small boy who dreams of space travel; or maybe, your astronaut is an old man who has been to the moon already, only for life back on earth to have been a disappointment to him ever since; he doesn't have to 'be' an astronaut when we meet him (or her) - he might have 'been' one...

  2. Hi Sasha, I've been a pretty poor writing buddy and not said Hi yet... umm, Hi!

    I was going to say something similar to what Phil has said...

    Maybe the attic could be the attic of a space house on the moon? Flipping the idea on its head; it could be an astronaught in a moon colony who wishes he could ride a unicycle but is unable to because of the lack of gravity? Unicycles are quite light and would stuggle to get traction (may be, who knows?)

    the astronaught could be build a gravity machine so he could ride it in the attic?
