the purple is there because the original design artwork in the production section was tinted purple so i followed suit to add a bit of colour but threw in a purple nebula in the background to explain the purple lowlight.
the "canopy" was indeed added very late as originally neither version had one. Kenz went with glass on the final cover art but i went "star trek" and opted for a "shimmery forcefield" to hold my atmosphere in :)
I did consider "borging" the llama at one point too.

Really nice, steve! My fave bits are the right Llama's face and the planet. I find the purple in the otherwise grey Llamas a bit odd though, and the glass domes that enable them to breathe in space seem a bit too faint, like an added afterthought (looks like they're behind the lamas!)...

I like the retro Sheepoid logo, and the Lama.

The STE'86 tag was only used for "scene" art. STE was always used on commercial projects (usually for codemasters)so as not to "date" the product. Effectively, this is a commercial release so its just STE on it :)

sheep o hoy.... STE86... Very very nice image and it looks just like it should do... I love the palette usage and the depth in the image...

Very skilled work and proves your master status that I have of you as an artist on the c64. Make even more things in the future, very fun to get your stuf.

You dropped the 86 in the signature now? I kinda loved the 86...

Somewhere, Jeff Minter is looking at this... with a huge erection.

(Aren't those llamas?)

Oh my! First of all, sheep. Then, a space setting, which is especially ideal for sheep. Third, the Yak-ish look of the sheep and fourth, the ultimately great 80's game title style. ENORMOUS!

I like it! It succeeds at being exactly what it tries to be. This is obviously your forte, perhaps you've done this before? ;-)
