Couldn't come up with a better name soooooo.....he's called Steve. He's a comic book super hero-ish character that I invented specifically for this project (even though all you get to see is his Jetcar). Maybe I'll actually model Steve sometime in the future. But in the meanwhile, voila.
All 3D stuff in Blender 2.56 (including composite this time). For the first time I experimented with the Color Balance node to achieve the soft atmosphere effect.
And the little collectors card was done in Inkscape.
