View Full Version : EOW #40 Holy Hall of Holographs VOTAS
November 14th, 2006, 05:10 PM
The majestically large hall houses many floors filled with holograms from past holy figures of this species' religion. Many of the denizens come to visit and admire the figures much like that of a museum. This alien civilization reveres their holy figures over anything else, which is why they dedicated so much time and resources into the construction and implementation of such an elaborate attraction.

voted gizmodus for the execution and feel of the piece.
It looks really grand.
Chaos: I don't really feel depth in your piece, which, I think, is partly due to the rather light background. Far away is usually darker.
I personally also don't really like the colour palette you used.
destinatus: It's hard to look at your work and keep a focused look. It's not very clear to me what's with the floor. Is it supposed to reflect or is it layered and see through?
I do like the smooth lines.
hallo: your work would be my second choice. The fact that it's rougher and less clear than gizmodus' work made me not vote for you. The viewpoint and perspective are the things I like your work most for.

@SigiLee: Yeah they are separate floors with semi-transparent glass like flooring.
I voted for gizmodus for the sense of scale and mood. I would have liked to see more emphasis on the holograms\holographs. Good work.

Well... stuff appears to be darker when further away then, right? ;).

"Well... stuff appears to be darker when further away then, right?"
Nope. Under normal circumstances, the reverse is almost always true. Even inside, unless only the foreground is lit with the background in deep shadow. "Air" has a very real density (dust, moisture/haze, thermal layering, tiny micro organisms from Venus) which scatters light and makes it more diffuse over distance. Look at any classic painting or photograph of "the great outdoors" and you'll notice that the distant mountains, trees and general landscaping is usually very "faded" in color, often with a tint of blue.
For the record, this wouldn't happen on the moon, where there is no atmosphere. Everything is equally sharp, and generally equally bright/detailed/shadowed unless the limitations of the human eye come into play.

and that, kids, is why art wasn't invented on the moon
thanks for jumping in, ilaekae, wise one :)

Hum, alrighty. Thanks for setting right my false claim of knowledge, which I really did think to be true :).
