Incandescence by absolutehalo Incandescence by absolutehalo
Originally done in August 2003


This piece has the atmosphere and mood I intended it to have. So in that regard I accomplished my goal for the work. However, the visual nature of the piece is very simplistic and rudimentary in nature. I aimed for a more painted feel and I believe in some regards that I achieved as such with the planets texturing.

My goal was to light from above. I had never seen it done in the context I was aiming for. Apparently it worked as this piece was featured in Greg's Article Capturing Heaven.

Rrrrr, why do you always post everything on Critique discouraged? =P I'm dying to critique them. I love the concept, and I had been working on doing something like that myself, but planet shadows get smaller as they get farther from the, creating a more slanted, cone looking path instead of a straight one (because of the great distances implied when looking at a planet) and I was still trying to figure out how to make that look good.

While I can respect your angle there is nothing to critique. This work has stood with time and it is as it was intended as has the rest of my work. Thus critique is discouraged.

In repsonse to your reasoning, I'm an idealist. While my personal library is filled with plenty of astrophysical and astronomical material from some of the best in the respective fields and I've researched the principles of physics and dynamics till I'm blue in the face, in the end creative freedom dictates my work. While distance, earthian physics and light would approve of your angle on shadow structure this piece is based more on closer proximities than you expect. One light source for all. An object (planetoid) cluster here simply does not have to qualify with earthian physics to be displayed as I see it. Thus distance is of no concern, nor was it when I first developed the piece. My aim was mood and feel not physic approach. Thus the shadows fit exactly as they were intended.

Thanks for your comment.

That looks awesome.

Did you re-use the same planet over and over or is it just something I'm seeing?

Yes it was reused. But keep in mind this piece is 3 years old. I was in heavy experimentation, learning how to implement the ideals I was learning. ;)

I'm not saying it wasn't right of you to re-use the model, cause it looks awesome. I was just wondering if my eyes were playing tricks on me.
