it really is about the oil spill(s), how they effect so much, probably more than we even know yet. i set out to do a "space" manip, but couldn't keep the sea life out of my mind, so i put them in. i like your thoughts about it, though. would that i were such a heavy thinker!
You are, babe... but I have put the oil spill out of my mind because Rice, my ambulance partner is in the business of knowing all their lame attemtps to fix it and knows that none of them is going to work. The estimations are that in four years, only THEN will the oil stop flooding the sea as it's doing now and by then, it will have already been raining oil and killing everything it touches directly and indirectly.
So since I know we're done here in a few years, I've emptied my mind and made room for the usual thoughts.
Just one thing that bugs me: You may have done this on purpose and in that case ignore me
-The scene itself looks great, its just teh planets and moon that looks off - the stars seem to be shining through them. I'd suggest removing the stars under the Earth and moon (instead of raising the opacity) to keep the surreal feeling but but the scene seem more realistic - more believable. Once again, if having it be unbelievable was your intention, ignore me
thanks for the input! i did try it that way to begin with, but the planets took on more importance than i wanted in the composition. i figured since it wasn't meant to be realistic, i could get away with it. i'm not sure how to keep the planets in their place if i remove the stars there. any suggestions would be appreciated. thanks!
I'm reminded of images from Omni magazine when they first started out with full-page features of some of the best new artists - this being without the 16:1 ratio of adverts to content. Exceptional color, and seamless contrasts - a best!
