Organised Chaos by priteeboy Organised Chaos by priteeboy
A large, rocky planet deep inside a nebula now takes on a form completely different to its former self. It was once a typical lifeless world with one ring orbiting in the same direction as its rotaton, as rings tend to do...However, a cataclysm of epic scale happened when a stray planet struck it and blew nearly a third of the target-planet and all of itself into oblivion. The disaster knocked it off its rotation axis and the huge rocky remains ejected into space formed a new, irregular ring which now follows the direction of the new axis while the original, formals rings remained where they were...The result was was two different types of rings following in two different directions, the new ring being slightly closer to the planet itself. Most of the atmosphere that wasn't blasted away has collected into a dense layer inside that huge crater.

Long story, I know. But since this is my entry for the sci-fi contest that everyone is talking about, I thought that a back-story would have been the perfect partner for what I hope is one of the most original space-scenes you have seen on this site. Most importatly, this was also test to see how good I could do using no textures or photos AT ALL! :w00t:

The fact a lot of your works contain coherent insights about the cosmos makes them all the more realistic and fascinating. It almost feels like you have access to a very powerful telescope that is able to peer into the depths of space and bring us back these striking images. To me, these pieces are more than just art in some ways they are visionary revelations! It is believed by some there was once a planet between Mars and Jupiter in our early solar system that was completely destroyed by a similar collision. Pieces of the debris would eventually hit Mars and Earth. As a result, Mars was left without an atmosphere and eventually(millions of years later) chunks of the collision impacted Earth killing all the dinosaurs. What is left is the main asteroid belt of debris which have not had enough time to settle down into finely formed rings.

I remember hearing about that "missing planet" between Mars and Jupiter as a kid. That's probably the only space thing I heard about from my brother before finding out on my own, even if he did steal the idea from a videogame :XD: The other alternative is that there was never a planet there to begin with, many say Jupiter's gravity kept preventing it from happening, which is less exciting but more realistic I guess ^^;

While I understand how gravitational tidal forces can literally rip another object to pieces not sure how Jupiter's gravity might prevent a planet size body from forming so far away while at the same time allowing 67 moons to coalesce in orbit around the Jovian giant. Also of note, Venus and Uranus have retrograde motions to the Sun while at the same time Jupiter, Saturn and Neptune have moons that are retrograde. It is believed these are captured satellites. But captured from where ? Were Venus and Uranus and possibly a missing proto-planet part of some ancient interaction our solar system had with another at some point in our 225+ million year orbit around the galactic core ?

I found it hard to accept that Jupiter's gravity stopped a new planet forming in what's now the asteroid belt too, since even from that Jupiter appears as little more than a faint speck of light in the sky. But it's what all the scientists say, maybe Jupiter was closer in at one point :O

Heh, ironic that the the spot the other planet, that almost killed the planet's possibility of life, hit is now the only spot where life can now exist.

I'd like to think that some small microbes or something is still alive and that in a millennia later that there will be life in that crater. Perhaps a part 2 pic showing a race that has carved an existence out in the crater? :D

I couldn't imagine life in such a huge deep hole. It would feel like being on any normal landscape but the horizon is significantly further up than just the usual eye-level :O Very weird indeed. I don't think this picture is good enough to get a sequel though unless I did a more realistic remake of it :hmm:

This one was made using two programs (often I use three or sometimes just one) Vue was the 3D program I used for the planet and floating rocky ring [link] and everything else done after that was drawn in Photoshop (I only had a mouse at the time too, so it's possible ;))

This piece caught my interest at very beginning not because of the planet in the first plane, but your approach in the background (no blue, no black for the starry backdrop) ...well what do you know you might me right on the money since the scientists said that cosmos is not black ....it's actually coffee with milk color ;)

Thankyou, I really wanted a dynamic and unique colour scheme for this one, so black and blue were out of question :movingon: wow, that's an interesting fact about space being those colours, I guess much of the elements like Hydrogen and Helium in the Universe would take on those colours though :tea:

Could be or maybe the universe is transparent :)
that would make sense to me - Just like air has no color
You welcome :)

:iconpriteeboy:
priteeboy Featured By Owner Feb 27, 2009  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I think the transparent Universe is a more logical choice for now ;) air actually does gain colour when there's enough of it, like how mountains turn blue when they are really far away, since the atmosphere eventually colours over things when there's enough of it in front ;) Different types of gases will be different colours, the air on Mar's for instance is a dull pink :D

I think the explanation of it from scientists was light and heat
refraction which did made sense to me - light in itself is white
but if you send it thru the prism you seeing the whole gamma - right
Space has no gases, its a vacuum - you see accumulations of gases
around solid objects (like Mars atmosphere) and the type of gas
and minerals from the planet surface effect the color :)...visible
to human eye - just like dropping some ink into the water :D
