Contest : Icarus by SamODJ Contest : Icarus by SamODJ
-Without thought and without sight, fly towards the coming night.-

My entry for 's contest. I wanted to do something a little bit more serene this time, no massive ring worlds or inverse renders :lol:

The idea was depict an eclipse originally, but it remains a coming eclipse, moments before, as two bi-planes ascend towards the sky. Or something. ;)

And don't whine too much about the placement of the typography...:)

Man, your presentation of the picture is perfect! While I was waiting for it to load, I was slowly scrolling down and the still picture played like a movie. LOL I don't know if you intended that(probably not) but that is an extremely sweet effect.

It's always this "terraspace"-like artwork I find really breathtaking!

I'm also curious. Those objects in the clouds just below the partial-eclipse... what are they?
