Reaching Knowledge -  Void lon iXaarii - v06

Reaching Knowledge

“I had reached for knowledge all my life, and I had always felt it reaching back for me, which made me deeply happy. But this time… well,  I’ve never been so scared in my whole life.”
    Thimotheus, Dark Scholar Chronicles

Deepscourer

And then in the twirls of thickening darkness I started seeing a shape, no more of them, feeding upon the soul-remains of the depths. I remembered then of my master’s teachings and realized I was seeing the bottom feeder beings known as Deepscourers. Remembering that was fortunate, as otherwise I might’ve let myself be deceived by it’s benign looking, almost peaceful outlook and gotten closer, risking being mistaken for a damned soul and being mercilessly fed upon.

Demonfusion

Many of the paintings of Lucilian Bradley were controversial, some were even banned by the art community, but, in his morbid fascination with the unknown, he didn’t really care about that. However there was one in particular that he exposed that night at the new gallery that caused the outrage to explode into incendiary violence. In truth is, even having barely escaped the burning building and the furious mob, he was secretly happy IT was swallowed by the flames. The fact that his paintings were inspired not by imagination but by the demonic trance visions was his dark secret, one that he could live with, but what he saw when he painted that particular one traumatically opened his mind to the horror that some abominations can occasionally fuse, creating fresh new horrors.
However, a few weeks later, his secret relief shattered on the cliffs of reality as he received a large check with the post. Normally he would’ve celebrated the huge sum of money, fueling his expensive decadent lifestyle, but, to his unease, the check revealed that the secret collector who had been generously bidding at the exhibition auction somehow managed to save that painting and wanted to thank him. Lucilian wished at least he hadn’t known! From that day on he started praying for engulfing fires, seeing them as paths to salvation.

I had been given the task to model a 3d scene on the theme “western scene with aliens” for a banner. This is what came out. Later I modified it to post on my bedroom wall where I had mostly illustrations:

Modeled based on a Sony HD Video Camera Recorder (I believe HVR-Z5U). I’m usually more into creating than reproducing, but in this case it was quite interesting to work on the model with the camera on the desk before me.

The full animation [15MB] is 50 seconds long, and with the background music “Unstable eXtasy” by me. I hope you enjoy it. The camera movement is a bit jumpy … but considering that it took me about 1 month to render this (yes, back in CG gfx prehistory, about 8 years ago), and that even while previewing it the frame rate was quite horrible, I hope you will forgive this and other imperfections that you may find, or lack of features that I would have otherwise possibly added via refinment.
