Interstellar Wormhole by ErikShoemaker Interstellar Wormhole by ErikShoemaker
Art inspired by the movie Interstellar, as you might have suspected from the title. :)

In General Relativity wormholes can (hypothetically) appear in certain points in spacetime, where space is bend so much that two seperate points in space are connected through a tunnel. Contrary to many depictions in movies and literature, the entrance of a wormhole itself is actually not flat 2D circle but a 3-dimensional sphere.
If you are interested in science fiction with real physics, then Interstellar is a must-see for you! :-) It is not only very accurate, but also visually enganging. 

Thanks go to Dagohbert for his asteroids and to in-the-skies who provided parts of the texture I used for the wormhole. 

On the right you can download two HD wallpapers in the sizes 2560*1440 and 1920*1080. Enjoy!

The artwork, like the movie itself, is mesmerizing . The use if scale is good, with the use of asteroids in the background helps to appreciate the size of the planet which in turn reflects the gravity of the wormhole. Using realistic color palette helps in favor of the wormhole. The composition is great considering the wormhole distorts everything even though i think the bottom of the planet might have been better if it was slightly distorted towards the wormhole to add to the realism. There should be more cracks on the surface of the planet as gets sucked by unbelievable force. Overall, this is a great piece of art.

Wow. Let me just say, wow. This is a beautiful picture, and I like the title. It really speaks to the nature of the picture. The dark and cool colors in the picture really bring out the dark and unpredictable nature of outer space. I assume that this is a star or planet being sucked into the wormhole?

If so, awesome. If not, still awesome. The cool colors, the purples and blues that you used to light the picture are great, and really add a lot of impact to the picture. I am not certain if this is a star or a planet, but either way, it's beautiful, and the comet that seems to be flying into the planet/star is a great touch.

Over all, this is an amazing picture, and it really blew my mind.

This is one of the most beautiful space art I've seen on DA. The colors are amazing. Btw, Interstellar is one of my favorite movies. Definitely in my top 5. One thing we lack is enough good sci-fi/space/alien type movies. 

EDIT: This is now my new pc background! Thank you.

Just saw the movie, and wow, what a movie, one of the best I've ever seen! Very mind opening and as you say, the physics are very accurate, which makes everything feel so real... This artwork is wonderful and you really succeeded with giving me that "interstellar feel". I really like looking at your space art in full scale because it feels like you could be there :D

Thanks so much for the nice comment! Did you know? The physicist who consulted on Interstellar just received a nobel prize for his work on gravitational waves 8-)

You're very welcome! Artists here deserves far more comments to their work! It feels like DA is a dying site... No way!! You know what, I actually heard that today (or well now it's 12:19 am xD), but what a coincidence! I will read more about that later!

well, you can ask me directly. :) And it depends on how you plan to use it.
You can use it if you credit me with a link back to my original work. But only if the video itself is not monetized (assuming it's on youtube).
