The first of two submissions by me to Project Aurora's 3rd release (see www.projectaurora.art). Made using a combination of Cinema4d, Video Copilot's Orb plugin for After Effects and Photoshop.

Really pleased with this piece and how it came out, in particular the calm feeling of it (despite the obvious power of the gas giant behind the portal). Hope everyone else likes it to.

You can see some of the different elements I used to make it over on Behance here: www.behance.net/gallery/766280…

Say, do you perchance enjoy classic hard rock?

I have definitely been known to dabble in putting some of the previously described musical genre into my consciousness via my ears... why does one ask?

(Also no idea why I felt the need to reply in the above manner, but it seemed appropriate).

Ah not actually a song I know, I have never really listened to Asia.

Some of my favourite accompaniement to sleeker styles of technologically inclined space scenes as yours. Quite odd since their only purely sci-fi themed cover was a single Roger Dean cyberpunk scene.

Sounds cool, I will check them out sometime definitely! I do love Roger Dean's art, his landscapes are so cool.

Indeed they are. If I was to select a "trinity" of sci-fi painters, it would be him next to Chris Foss and H.R. Giger.

If you do get a chance, do give Asia's videos a look as well. Especially Go: Some may say the content is too rooted in its era to have aged well, but feel it is practically a proclamation of love to that particular style.

There can sometimes be a hint of melancholy in calm and quiet... so that may be what you are picking up.

I'm digging the new work. How is the activity at Aurora? I've been keeping an eye out for new art collectives for years now, unfortunately it seems those projects are dying out. Sad to see. Glad to see there are artists like yourself that are keeping it going, though.

It goes up and down, it is all organised through a facebook group and the last few weeks before a release tend to be pretty active, but outside of that not a huge amount goes on. 

I know what you mean about art collectives, its a shame, but I guess the internet is quite a different place from when they were at their peak, and most of us have gone from being teenagers at school/uni to adults with full time jobs etc, I guess they were largely a thing of their time. A great time though :)
