The Pioneer Spirit (Night)


SKU: pioneerspiritnight1 Category: Tags: ,


I had been meaning to do a night version of “The Pioneer Spirit” for a while but I got a bit sidetracked with other projects. Late last evening I was able to put everything else aside and create this much darker version.

    Make a day mode one for OS X Catalina.

    Make a day and night mode version for OS X Catalina.

    You just rock! I love the feeling you give me with your paintings. On how small we really are in this universe. It’s such a majestic feeling with lots of humility at the same time. Thank you.

    Really Cool I love other worldly renders, maybe some day we will reach the stars

    I would love to try rendering a “day to night sequence”. I know the new Macs to can set the wallpaper based on the time of day so it would definitely be something to explore. I probably won’t be able to render that many hi-res images until I get Rochallor built though.

    So lonely yet warming and cozy, reminds me of the igloo in Perseverance.

    Now I really want to see how the full day-sunset-twilight-night-twilight-sunrise-day cycle looks like on this planet 🙂

    Plus, the landscape here is too black for my taste, I want a dark background but still see details.

    I tried simple linear blending, using ImageMagick:

    composite -blend 99×00% pioneerspirit1uhd.jpg pioneerspiritnight1uhd.jpg pioneerspirit-blended99x00.jpg

    composite -blend 90×05% pioneerspirit1uhd.jpg pioneerspiritnight1uhd.jpg pioneerspirit-blended90x05.jpg

    composite -blend 80×10% pioneerspirit1uhd.jpg pioneerspiritnight1uhd.jpg pioneerspirit-blended80x10.jpg

    composite -blend 70×20% pioneerspirit1uhd.jpg pioneerspiritnight1uhd.jpg pioneerspirit-blended70x20.jpg

    composite -blend 60×40% pioneerspirit1uhd.jpg pioneerspiritnight1uhd.jpg pioneerspirit-blended60x40.jpg

    composite -blend 50×60% pioneerspirit1uhd.jpg pioneerspiritnight1uhd.jpg pioneerspirit-blended50x60.jpg

    composite -blend 40×80% pioneerspirit1uhd.jpg pioneerspiritnight1uhd.jpg pioneerspirit-blended40x80.jpg

    composite -blend 25×90% pioneerspirit1uhd.jpg pioneerspiritnight1uhd.jpg pioneerspirit-blended25x90.jpg

    composite -blend 10×95% pioneerspirit1uhd.jpg pioneerspiritnight1uhd.jpg pioneerspirit-blended10x95.jpg

    composite -blend 00×99% pioneerspirit1uhd.jpg pioneerspiritnight1uhd.jpg pioneerspirit-blended00x99.jpg

    of which I quite like 40% night + 80% day, and 25%+90% (though exceeding 100% sum caused artifacts on the dome…)

    But of course that is flawed on so many levels. Any chance you will do more versions of this scene?

    Is it me, or would this image not make an amazing Christmas wallpaper with some modifications?

    love it. and I love the little easter eggs of other images you throw in (like that planet!)
