Portal To The Depths of Space by Smiling-Demon Portal To The Depths of Space by Smiling-Demon
First in a little two part series for theluminarium's 26th release Depth. 

I was lucky enough to be the featured artist this time round and this piece was a featured piece! You can check out the full release here: theluminarium.net/v3/exhibits.…

----

This is a collaboration with ErikShoemaker who made the sexy portal you see in the middle. Also a big thanks to the guys at Lum who gave some great tips and ideas along the way, it wouldn't have got to this state without you guys!

You can see Erik's version here: fav.me/d95htbu

Busy busy busy... spent the past year or so working on my Master's thesis which I, finally, could turn in. Suddenly, all the stress is gone and I'm kind of afraid that I don't know where to spend all my free time on :p

How about you?

Ah yeah, are you happy with the end result? I have mainly just been working, and not finding as much time to do art as I used to (which frustrates me, but there we are). Maybe you should use all this free time to blitz out a load of new pieces!

Challenge accepted! Gonna paint some stuff now! :D

Also, yeah, kind of happy with the final result. Got the "passed with distinction" on my certificate, so at least I have that going for me :p

You are not the first person to say that. Although I think Erik's style inspiration for the portal was more Eve online. :)

ErikShoemaker Featured By Owner Edited Jun 13, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I guess it's because of the water reflection background I used, e.g., stargate-project.de/stargate/d…
and that might have been subconsciously startgate inspired :D

This looks awesome! =D Love the portal, and the sense of space and perspective in relation to the background.  The height gives it kind of a daunting feel.

I see that the background of the portal indeed resembles the classic stargates a bit :D though the design is probably more inspired by Eve Online

Thanks! And of course, who isn't a fan of StarGate? (Although I will admit I have never watched that much of it and don't know it as well as I possibly should :P)
