Hertzian Dipole by ErikShoemaker Hertzian Dipole by ErikShoemaker
This is a semi-realistic concept taken from electromagnetism and applied to space art. :woohoo: In this artwork the planet in the center of the nebula supposedly acts as an antenna of electromagnetic radiation. Because of the planet's proximity to the nebula the gas clouds will be shaped by the radiating electric fields, resulting in the idealized ripples shown in this picture. Such dipole antennas are also called "Hertzian Dipoles". You can see in this animation how these electric fields theoretically move over time: www.didaktikonline.physik.uni-…
Note that the physics behind it are questionable as gravity is much stronger than electromagnetism on such scales. It's just for fun!

I spent an awfully long time to create and detail this strangely shaped nebula, so it somewhat felt like a chore to realize this concept. It's definitely much easier to draw a randomly shaped nebula because you can speed it up by copy+pasting already drawn shapes. :XD:
Thanks to Dagohbert for his asteroid resources. I overuse them, but they are just so good. The rest was drawn with some additional textures for details.

This work was originally made for Space-Revived's CHROMATIC contest, however, I decided to use a remixed version of this artwork instead, which I will upload later. Check out the contest here:
Space Art Contest: Chromatic!Space-Revived Presents... THE CHROMATIC CONTEST
At long last, the new Chromatic Contest arrives, open to all members of Space-Revived!
The theme is completely open to your imagination, with a twist: you must use only ONE OR TWO COLOURS in your space artwork. Your space art may represent anything you can imagine, but the most important thing is to champion your choice of colour. 
Image: SalmonickAtelier
Rules:
• You must be a member of Space-Revived to participate. However, everyone is welcome to join!
• Submit your work to our Chromatic folder.
• State in your description that the image was made for the Chromatic contest with a link to this journal.
• Two entries per deviant allowed, but only one can win.
• All entries must be created after October 14


As always, thanks for stopping by!

This is amazing also its great how you give it the detail/ description about its whole meaning. I hope this was real it wold be amazing. Youre is really awesome.
Yore artwork is always so realistic and at the same time its has a nonrealistic touch thats what makes them unique aswell as the places or objects that you take reference too makes youre artwork unique.

I love this section of the univrse and all that stuff and im not hte only oneof course.

Very cool! :wow: well balanced and in harmony under each aspect for this reason there isn't other to write.
In the past i had seen various documentaries relative the serie "how universe works" so it is also realistic and reminds those scenes!
and as always luck you are one of the few manipulators still use normal sizes

ahah, it looks pretty huge on my monitor, but I know a lot of people have larger monitors than I do and they appreciate bigger sized pictures. Thanks man!

DraakeT Featured By Owner Nov 24, 2017  Hobbyist Digital Artist
what is the size of your monitor?

in any case for me is always one of the big misteries of the life! haha The authors upload giant images in 6000x3000 and then you see the final manip in 800x600. What a waste of time upload huge images and then see useless tiny works!
Luck the section mattepainting is safe and i spend 90% of the time in that section because im becaming blind in photomanipulating section. For me is a sort of torture browse tiny works.
Spend hours to create a manip and then upload it in tiny size means also lose 90% of the entire work because the visual impact is highly reduced and os also if the work is perfect and cool, it will be always on low quality! Indeed im obliged to close them in 2 second because also too boring.

people are always worried about their work being stolen. It happens all the time... I can understand them, but on the other hand - what's the point in uploading something if people won't enjoy it anyway because of the tiny size. :shrug: 
My monitor is 1680x1050, which is good enough for me, but I get asked frequently to upload 3000+ pixels for their desktop. :lol:

1050 is very good and let an excellent vision.

About 3000..and why not 10000 like Nasa images? haha ..bahh really ridicolous size......and a waste of time!! :D sometimes i see works in 4000x6000 wuàààààà when i read that size....i close immediately the page, (well i do exceptions only with old Da friends)for obvious reasons
Actually i got 2 lcd.
one of the pc 27" to create and i use another the most huge 40" only to visualize the final work. and  the full hd 1080 is always the best. but probably who want 3000 or more, has some Cinema at home cdn-images-1.medium.com/max/20…
