Singularity by ErikShoemaker Singularity by ErikShoemaker
If you haven't noticed, my space artworks always come in pairs: I simply enjoy recycling testing different setups and crops. This image is a remix of my recent space scene "Hertzian Dipole". Here I dropped my initial concept in favor of a higher-impact composition. I also think the dual color scheme works much better in this artwork, which hence is my submission for the CHROMATIC contest hosted at Space-RevivedSpace Art Contest: Chromatic!

Always loving space artwork its amazing and its really cool you want to keep testing using the same scenario but with other color textures and shades its amazing and unic at the same time.
The combination of colors and shades really higlight in this image love how everything glows.
Also like that little detail you put of the spacecraft knowing that we are in space if someone didnt already know.

Youre artwork is great always gives me an impact on what you can do. Keep up the good work. Also love doing critiques on your artwork its always and will always be an honor.
What do you think?

Reminded me of the photo they're trying to take from a black hole
They're still gathering the data from all the telescopes and uniting it into one single thing to see what it looks like >.>

haha, this was a bit of luck I guess - sometimes it's good to experiment, you'll end up with cool looking stuff that you didn't have in mind at first. Something I used a lot more when I was a pure noob :D Thanks a lot man!

Definitely, I'm dabbling a bit in the digital painting world now, so I'm experimenting much more.
It's not easy, it's really interesting, but most of all it's really fun :D

Beautiful work Erik! I really like how well you got the ripple effect in there and how well the colours work with each other. :clap:

Glad you like the colors man! It was challenging to focus on using only a few because I tend to add a lot more :D

I am fascinated by science and singularity is, of course, the most spectacular and event ever. Really like how you represent it!

ErikShoemaker Featured By Owner 5 days ago  Hobbyist Digital Artist
indeed, there's a lot of fascinating stuff happening in the universe, but the singularity is something that is also theoretically not well understood. That's what I love because it offers room for creativity too :D Glad you like it, thanks!

There's an infinite amount of beautiful space artwork in Deviantart, but I don't think I've ever seen someone who makes storms or "whirlpool-like" phenomenon as beautiful as you do. You make a very good use of colours too. I thinkI prefer this one too. Anyway, herzlichen Gluckwunsch!

Thank you for the kind comment, I really appreciate it! As you say, there's a ton of beautiful space art around here already, so I always try to give it a special "twist", in this case whirlpool lol ;) Glad you like it!

I'd have to agree with what you said in the artist comments, I very much like this one, seems like an improved version of the other. :D 
Lovely color scheme for sure, and I like the inclusion of the "ship". Also I find the bottom right corner mesmerizing, like, there's something really awesome there but you can only see a hint of it, way for us to want more. :P

Yeah, as so often it's tough to sacrifice certain parts of your artwork for the greater good lol. In this case the original concept was quite difficult to portray in an appealing way. Dropping the concept made that part easier :D Glad you like it!

I think I actually liked this one more. Though I could be biased because I like purple. On one hand it looks like a chaotic storm, on the other - a calm ripple in space. I bet it would make an awesome blacklight painting too since it looks like it's under one already. Either way I sure hope that spacecraft is sending back pictures to whoever sent it!

ErikShoemaker Featured By Owner Dec 5, 2017  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yeah, I think this one is better, too. I just couldn't bring myself to decide against the other because the concept took such a long time to pull off. In the end it wasn't really worth it though. :D

I'll make sure to let them know to send you a postcard. :D
