Cutting light

Cutting light, the strongest light bulb there is. Cutting through wood, concrete and stone in just moments.

I've never really been working much with smoke and fire, so I wanted to create this photo as an experiment. So the idea is that the light is so strong that it cuts through anything. How do you think the different parts comes together? Any thoughts on changes or improvements, whatever comes to your mind I would be happy to hear!

Eg. what about the chair, better with or without? I think I got the cut right based on this simple sketch: Have a look at this: [link]

Why is that man not at least a little alarmed by this? Amazing job, I love your work!

well, I think the man looks too calm as if it is just an ordinary thing:) or perhaps the calm look on his face is a kind of humor?

Great! But one thing irritates me: Why does the man look totally relaxed? That is totally unappropriate for the inferno!

If the light instantly burns everything, there has to be very dense smoke clouds (which expands in extremely high velocity) in the shape of the objects that where burnt. And because these clouds are in the light, they would be enlighted from this extreme bright light. I think this would be very complex to imagine, because this clouds were then like lighting objects itself and also half clear objects which can passed by light partly.

But this realization is also mindblowing :)

That is WILD!  I would assume that for the light to do what it does in "Cutting light", It must be like a laser of some kind but then it would have to be so much wattage that you couldn't be too close around it without wearing full, extreme-heat resistant protective gear and goggles.

I am absolutely fascinated by the theory of a chemical relationship between light particles and matter of other than it's kind. The chair serves a purpose as showing the chemical reaction of combustion in effect at that moment of time. I have one small opinion concerning the brightness of the room. Due to the size of the room with the amount of exposed light particles, the room should be considerably brighter. Thank you for sharing, I am amazed by your art.

this is awesome i really like how the chair looks like its falling into the light and therefore more of it is burning simply amazing

I really like what I've seen from you so far, but this is only acceptable as an experiment (not that I could create anything this good ^^;). The first thing that strikes me is that the placement of the smoke and of the red flames right under the lamp just does not look right composition- and conceptwise. The cut in the table somehow also looks wrong. Then there is the way the light itself behaves (correct me if I'm wrong); since we can actually see some of the lightbulb it follows that the radius of the area catching fire and burning should be much wider (almost level with the lamp). If you want the cut to be the way it is you should move the bulb up to the very top of the screen.

Furthermore, a room with that bright a light-source shouldn't be anywhere near this dark. If I'd made this picture I'd have made the lower part of the room so bright that the light almost completely eliminates the perception of color, even the roof should be well lit and the man should be shielding his eyes, taking a reflexive step back while casting a long shadow out into the next room. I'd have made the flames much smaller but more intense, made all the edges white hot like on the chair falling and included a minimum of smoke (because those particles would burn up very fast, so no smoke in the circle and only a little outside).

But you should definitely do more fire stuff :) Keep it up :thumbsup:

thanks for the feedback, yes it's a bit experimental

dislike , you can do much better than this :(

Another superb image!

(And since you ask, I think the chair is a nice touch but not quite right - would look better tipped over at a greater angle so that the cut through the back wasn't so suspiciously perpendicular to the chair itself)
