Everything and Nothing


Full title: The Theory of Everything and Nothing.
They found the cave where there used to be somebody. This person was looking for a way to connect both everything and nothing. He never found out how and left his work to be. Thousands of years later, they found it.

From the SideTrip painting series.

Update: I made a time lapse video of the entire process, check it out: http://youtu.be/UtC3HcX-xfs

As soon as i saw this i thought of a side-scroller. This style would be amazing, can just imagine the beautiful lighting and melodic music in the background. Make it happen!

The Model and secret of Universe!

"I've found it. The place where every universe meets."

This is such a cool concept.

Colors and composition are good but I don't like that I can't read any of it, besides the character and the orb the rest just looks like a mess. Also I see the depth, but only so far as the middle ground. It doesn't feel like there's a foreground which bothers me.

ErrorCell responds:

Well you're pretty spot on with what I struggled with on this round. This scene was actually first created and rendered in 3D. I later painted right on top of it, added several layers of glow and glare... which is probably making this really awkward confusion between foreground background stuff. If I had another 3~4 hours of my life to remake this, that's basically what I'd work on.

Thanks for the commentary!

something tells me if someone made this a game whether 3d or a 2d sidescroller or whatever, it would make an amazing game :) i looked at the others, this is some seriously beautiful stuff, the visuals and the ideas behind them. Amazing.

ErrorCell responds:

Yes! I've been talking with a couple folks in regards to creating a game with this style. The issue I have right now is that I'm simply overly busy with "actual life things as a motion graphics designer" so I end up having around 3 hours a week to accomplish these paintings. Although it may take years, keep an eye out. No guarantees, but not impossible! Thanks for the comment!
