Collaboration between *ChrisCold and `taenaron.

It actually is my third collab and I'm very pleased with the outcome. The original concept was made by *ChrisCold. The overall appearance changed several times during the last two months. *ChrisCold was responsible for and middleground and I did the background. But both worked on the whole pic, improving little things etc.

What is it? Ask your imagination...

So hi; I really love this piece. Way better than anything I'll ever be able to do myself, hence the high number of stars given. Still, I just wanted to offer this critique not of your technique, but of the content itself which is astronomically questionable (at least slightly.) Better than most, please don't get me wrong... and I understand that without the nebulae, the artwork would have seemed emptier... but in terms of raw physics, what is displayed isn't realistic (outside the glass, that is.)

Basically, Nebulae exist on a much grander scale than solar systems and planets do. 10x, 100x, 1000x, 10000x larger typically, and at the scale of an individual planet, the gas is so fine and dispersed that it would barely be able to be picked up with star-light streaming through it, much less be so ... I don't know... viscous as seen here. Granted, stars and planets are born within densely packed nebulae, but as they come into fruition, they scour out a hollow within it and then when the sun 'ignites' (for lack of a better term) the gas and dust is pushed out of the system (mostly.) We see this in 'bowshocks' surrounding stars still in close proximity to nebulae all the time.

So yeah, beautiful work; just a science hiccup and not one I'd suggest doing anything about really. This critique is just offered to inspire future works of course. Feel free to keep this private and for your own sole benefit!

Keep up the good work! =D

Space is a very Mysterious place isn't it?
Mikhel Featured By Owner Mar 28, 2011
I love this piece! Truly amazing.

While it is far greater a piece than to simply be used as a wallpaper - it is currently my wallpaper @ 3840. It set the mood perfectly! It is dark but not depressing. It is Space which ignites my imagination and eases my troubles. It is Imaginative in its 'bridge' design and technology. The depth of field with the personnel makes me feel I'm on the structure with them. The space features (Planet, moon, star, and gas) provide a very entertaining and attraction to the piece while never being too distracting as a workspace.

While I do agree that the 'cloud' (nebulae) around the start isn't "accurate" in terms of physics - it doesn't change the fact the the piece is incredible and without the nebulae it would lose some of its character. Amazing work!

Scared the shit out of me, when I realized (on 4 o'clock in the morning), that there is a shadow on my right display, which looks exactly like me right now. For a moment I thougt my computer turned into some kind of mirror. >.<

I have a theory that the machines and computers do most of the work here. The humans have access to details of what the ship is doing (with the very cool looking projections), but they probably don't need to look very often!

Perhaps they are clones who do a bit of repair work and then die off before the next set of clones are brought to life!

So I asked my imagination and I think this is a command ship and its mission is to watch the black hole and identify who/what is time travelling with it and inform the Organization Terraform XII about them.. =)
