This image was created as an experiment, based partially on a lighting effects tutorial I found at [link] . The concept for the image is that the pages of the open book are emanating little bubbles of knowledge which are rising up into the air. The waves of text are quotes from Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, because Douglas Adams' wit is the only thing I could think of bright enough to shine with such a brilliance.
This is just what I'm looking for. I've been searching for something that captures my interpreation of 'knowledge' and this is great!
Thanks! It's fun to think of knowledge as something that shimmers and bubbles and emanates from text, so I decided to depict it as such.
Wow it's really nice! I'm gonna have a look at that lighting techniques tutorial
Thanks, and have fun. It's a really fun tutorial because of how open-ended it is. It showed me several non-destructive alternate methods for things that I hadn't even thought of.
