Birth Of White Matrix by weirdink Birth Of White Matrix by weirdink
Long time ago in the Mystery World, before humans and animals even existed, the Matrices appeared.. The Old Books describe that day as The Birth Of The Matrices.
Nobody knows where these strange creatures came from as they rushed down on the Mystery World from the skies. Big as mountains, they fell for years and years, untill one day they appeared on the blue skies like flaming meteorites. They inhabited the depths of our seas for 3 days in order to shed their cocoons and rise to the surface. There are many Matrices, each one responsible for a particular task in the Mystery world. The White Matrix was the first one who rose on the surface.. Watching his siblings following his journey, the White Matrix knew that not all of them would make it to the surface.. And not all of them would choose to lead a peaceful life...

I like how the simple composition gives a good sense of depth, also de soft colors makes it really special.

The only thing I wonder is why the matrix doesn't makes a splash when it enters the water.

Nice work. :)

Hey, thanx!!! Well if you read the description carefully...It takes 3 days in order to get to the surface, they first go down to the sea bottom stay there for a while until they shed they cocoons and then they come up..So the White Matrix was the first one to emerge...;)

thats really sweet - how did you color it, btw? the white glow around some of the objects looks good and adds to the atmosphere of the piece. i'm also really liking the shoreline. :heart:

:iconweirdink:
weirdink Featured By Owner Jan 22, 2006  Professional Digital Artist
Well, its all done in Illustrator, took a bit of effort to get the balance right. Yeah, the glow its just an outer glow filter with the blur ratio set to around 40 pixels, I like it as well because it gives the piece atmosphere as you said.. Then the rest is mainly gradients painstalkingly choosed and set on multiply mode, so they blend well with each other..Hope I make sense, hahaha!!! The shoreline is made just with flat colours, then reduced opacity to give it a sense of depth and distance, just like our eyes see things. It is a good trick to actually not overdecorate the distant background as it can be distracting and less believable, thats my humble opinion.. There are still many many flaws in the piece, but what he heck? I am gonna get better, practice makes perfect!!!

Take care my friend

yea i know what you mean, but the multiply gradient thing gives me headaches (i only tried it once) and i didn't even KNOW that illustrator could do blur...?

... damn, there's still so much to learn.

yeah the background being simple is a good way to make sure the focus is on the front. sometimes the flaws make the piece look better, because it's more "real" that way - if every tree and every mountain was perfect, it would look too forced.

Well, lets see..
*scratches head*
Some of the Matrices had to stay underwater in order to give birth to fish, I think...
But sadly enough, some of them did not make it and died while being underwater...
*mumbles to himself*
Its better to leave space for the viewer to make up his own explanations, I think.. Or I am just lazy???hahaha!!!
