Critical Mass by tigaer Critical Mass by tigaer
Thousand years ago we only dreamed of the magic we are able to do today. Today we dream of things that may be absolutely business as usual in another thousand years. Drawing energy from nothing... other dimensions maybe? We should only hope that things don't excalate in all the greed for energy nowadays. If there is one constant in the universe then the fact that energy will always be needed to do amazing things. That could definitely sling back at us and break our necks. As we've all seen in recent events.

'Energy' was the topic for The Luminarium's newest art collection release which can be found here: [link] - some really cool works among them. Especially the music that comes with the pack. Check it out!

The making of the pic was pretty much business as usual. I struggled a bit with the structures and the final result may not be the best solution. Nonetheless i hope it's a cool addition to the pack. However, i wanted to show some kind of a futuristic energy generator. Right from the beginning i knew i had to visualize the energy effect by using Apophysis fractals. This was fun. I also used the metablob function in Vue to create that weird mass thingie. A lot of post work in Photoshop again.

Interesting that you should post this and talk about drawing energy from other dimensions. I had recently grabbed from a library sale an old Isaac Asimov novel called "The Gods Themselves". Has to do with that very thing. Awesome piece, BTW!

I never saw this in the forums :confused: Nice surprise though, and it looks like the huge structure took a while to model too. But what I like most is the flames coming out of that ship and how they brighten up the nearby trees :clap: Though I can easily tell both planets are just the moon :paranoid:

Amazing, I just pictured a small kid getting up to go to school in the morning, taking a step outside and looking straight at a generator and thinking, "this is normal".
