Daily Deviation

Given 2009-03-04
Cataclysm III by *sirgerg was, still is and will be an inspiration in the future as well. After more than three years the quality still is top notch. Make sure not to miss the gallery of one of digital space art's founding fathers.

Wow! That's really an emergency situation :lol: !

Beautiful color on the impact point - I imagine this is a moment frozen in time - before the total destruction that is about to occur :)

Scientifically talking this is all wrong. The gravity of the two planets would make them wider and at this moment the smaller would ahve bigger fences. But anyway, this looks great! Art doesn't need to be scientific acurate. :P

I'm not sure what you're talking about, but I agree it's pretty off. This was painted before I started taking the science aspect of my work seriously.

Hehe. :D When two big objects in other space like thouse planets with similar masses, they're gravity will push the surface each one of them to oposite sides. And the part of the planet that is in front of the other planet will start being "atracted" by the gravity of the other planet. In your artwork piece the two planets are perfect spheres.

You can see in this picture... [link]

The bigger planet is deformed.

But anyway this looks awesome as I said. Brilliant work! :D

Does seem to make more of an impact than before. Did you make it more "vivid" and increase some of the contrasts between elements (i.e. bottom left nebulae and the transition into the impactee's umbra)?

I tweaked the background colors so they blended to black better, added some warmer hues and adjusted the main planet shading so it looked a little more spherical.

It is a wonderful image and beautifully rendered, but I think that both bodies would be quite disturbed and destroyed-looking from tidal forces, even before collision, in such close proximity. :-)

Entirely possible. At the time I made this (four years ago) I was far less concerned with such things... if I paint a new one in the future however, good notes to keep in mind.
