Sharing the Same Storm by priteeboy Sharing the Same Storm by priteeboy
While still waiting for the flash file I went to get help with for my recently submitted Across The Universe calendar, I decided to use the free time I had to illustrate an idea I had in mind for a few years now. Just waiting for a "well, don't know what else to draw" moment like now. Trying to bring something a little new to the space and science fiction scene, I went for two gas giant planets either stuck in the most well balanced orbital dance ever, or more likely, moments away from collision. Something you just don't see in the genre. Not sure if this is what the event looks like, but it would be a pretty cool sight to see, and a terrifying one to be caught up in!

Two gas giants colliding = epicness!

I wonder what will happen after the collision? Will the final result have enough mass to undergo Nuclear Fusion? Or at least be a brown dwarf?

That's a goo question. I imagined a lot of fire and mess but eventually just having a larger gas giant form at the end of it. Guess it depends on how big they are, since there's still quite a generous amount of size-variation within the gas giant category :nod:

I am sure these things happen and your illustration points out the dynamics of such an entanglement would bring. Worlds being destroyed, the moon literally being torn apart, a most unpleasant ending for anything that should inhabit the worlds or that poor moon. With gravity tides pulling and cutting and the other forces at work this perhaps is a most realistic view we have until total obliteration of both planets. Kind of makes you wonder perhaps something akin--though on a much smaller scale may have happened between Mars and Jupiter. Now also finding these planets that zip around their star, something like this is going on, surely a planet that orbits its sun in 8 hours must be undergoing tremendous stress as well. I see no reason why this isn't possible with everything that is happening in this universe this just seems to be one more thing that perhaps someday we will catch a glimpse of. Until then your picture tells the story in a very real fashion, I see no reason to doubt what is happening here is really what happens.

It's true they have found things that no artist would have ever thought of in the past, It's interesting when I come across old artwork depicting things that "could" happen in the universe but weren't certain at the time, but now have been either proven as fact or debunked as impossible. But either way the artwork is often very interesting as it shows what people were thinking of at a time when those things weren't entirely proven or not. Maybe in years to come, decades even - this here might be one of those artworks that shows "hey, someone knew this could happen years ago" or "wow, look at the crazy ideas people had back then" :XD: either way, if it ends up being the topic of conversation for a bunch of astronomers at any point in time that would be pretty cool :D

Hot Jupiter's, Mini Neptune's, Super Earths, and Pluto with a Moon system. All these only came about in the last few years. Look at any Science book from the 1950's-Jupiter, 11 or 12 moons, Saturn, 9 moons and the diameter of Pluto anywhere from Earth size to Moon sized. Venus was suppose to have an atmosphere of Carbon Dioxide and even Formaldehyde. I am sure what we have discovered now will be revised over and over again as we are able to fine tune our instruments. I believe there are even more unusual things out there that we have yet to discover or see because we ourselves have yet to formulate the existence of such things.

I just hope I'm still around when we get the full facts on almost everything. Science can only be re-written so many times before the real facts are found ;p

I think Science will always be changing, established facts or what we think are established facts will give way to new truths which will be in turn be replaced by new discoveries. Science will always be evolving. We tend to fit the science around our own comfort zones failing to realize that science doesn't exist for our own pleasure and solving abilities alone. There are some cold hard truths but for the most part anything new we tend to idealize it (for now) into our own comfort zone and fail to realize that maybe we are just looking at a minor point in the whole scheme of things.

This is an amazing piece of art. It's really creative and it's something I would never picture. If I were to ever draw a planetary collision it would probably look like a butt with stuff flying out of the crack. I would love to buy this but I'm a broke 17-year-old without a job so... yeah.

Haha, a butt - reminds me of my bubble-blowing days when two would stick together and that's what I called it :lol:

I was jobless at 17, so don't feel too bad. Some people could juggle school and work together. I for one didn't have that kind of energy :p

My little sisters and I call them butt bubbles. Well, more like, just butts.

I don't understand how people can go to school and work at the same time. People are weird.

That's my opinion anyway.

They were originally going to be, but then it looked more like internal heat coming from within the planets themselves, which I thought looked better so I just went with that ;)

Have you hear of a game called universe sandbox? It is a sim essentially ( I have it on steam) where you can play with the universe and make planets collide with other planets or whatever. If you want to see what it will look like if some planet is coming close to a ring-bearer, it could help you with a close approximation sim of the event (I just think it might help your art, I'm not promoting it or anything XD).

Someone actually asked me what about having an approach happen between a planet that had rings with another. I suppose that thing you're speaking of would show what kind of effect it would have on rings if it had a realistic gravity simulator. I think the shape it forms depend son where the other planet is coming from :nod: It'll probably just turn into an irregular stream of debris.

On the other hand, I used a guide to play with Saturn's rings and adjusting its Z position (Saturn's) made the moons swarm around him like a hornet's nest. It was very beautiful. :)

I've always imagined something like this. Unfortunately, I have no artistic skills..
Here's another idea. How about a planet approaching ringed planet from above and pulling on its rings? 
Reply
:iconpriteeboy:
priteeboy Featured By Owner Dec 11, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I wondered what that might look like at one point. I imagined the rings spiralling away from one planet towards the other :O

:icondeeparth:
Deeparth Featured By Owner Dec 16, 2013
I imagined the rings diffusing upwards like the structures of dust they are. most of the mass staying in the parent planet's orbit while the lighter dust getting pulled forming a highly diffused structure going towards the other planet that scatters light from the nearby star. I hope I'm able to create an image in your mind.

I'm glad someone actually coming up smashing ideas in this genre and I'm also glad that I watch that someone. :iconthumbsupplz: Unlike the rest stuff I get in my inbox. Space art gets old really fast with the similar compositions over and over again. It's really challenging to keep it fresh.

There's always room for the classic style space scenes, but indeed they all start looking the same once in a while. Also rarely using any unique colour schemes (like the fact that most of them are blue, it's cool but I'm a bit bored of blue space art by this point). Even with planets alone it'll be interesting to see some interesting surface textures or something unlike what we have seen before. I guess it's a pretty limited genre though, anything non-cliche can be questionable in terms of whether or not it can even exist :XD:

Physco-Matter Featured By Owner Dec 11, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
But sure questionable concepts kept me hooked in space art (more
like saying sci-fi would be right I think) for now. If you can imagine it
then probably it might exist somewhere, if not in this universe then
maybe in some other universe then. A lot of recent findings in science
sound more like fiction already (or maybe I feeling it now because I'm
still young xD). At this point I think I've stopped being skeptical much.
Just focused on beauty and meaning than mechanism of nature. I don't
know how far big and small we could break down and label something
taken into account from nature. : P
