Moon Necklace by ArtBIT Moon Necklace by ArtBIT
The moon was so perfect last night,
and I didn't bring my camera....

But I tried to memorize it.
The moon with the beautifull earthshine, the star perfectly aligned above it, the perfect colours - gradiently flowing the cold light blue to the dark, almost black, blueness of the universe...

The scene was just way too perfect...
This one's not. This is my miserable attempt in copying it...

This scene is also connected to my gaming days... I played Rolemaster, and once, while I was a gamemaster, I made up this cult of followers of Kaira, the goddess of the moon...
In the autumn, and when the constelation was right + the moon was young, all night passengers were in the grace of goddess of the moon.
And once in 1000 years, again when the stars are in the right positions, and in the time of the full moon, Kaira, the goddess of the moon would visit our realm and spread bliss amongst the believers... ;P (I miss the gaming days...)

--

The trees were done with my pseudo-fractal script in flash (which needs A LOT of optimizing, cuz it keeps blasting my comp lol) and then print-screened....
[EDIT 2005. Dec 06.] Here's a new lighter version of the algorithm -> ArtBIT's Tree Tracer v1.0
The rest was photoshoped!

If you think this isn't spectacular, then you may be very very confused. You did an incredible job.

you undervalue yourself too much, this is a marvellous rendition of the phrase "put the moon on you neck", do not quit.

by not having your camera, it will just mean the vision you remember will be ever more remarkable ;-)

this is gorgeous... we can never really ever recreate the beauty of nature, even with a photograph; but the good thing is that you tried. I love it
It would make a really cool background if it was big enough... like with black or dark blue on either side.

very nice :)

Hi this akbar nemati an iranian amatuer astronomer. i have a website about astronomy [link] it's in persian language. can I use your art work? in one of my articles?

ArtBIT Featured By Owner May 3, 2007  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Hmmm... I guess you could.
But I would have to ask you to at least put a link back to this page ([link]), anyplace near the image on your site, please.
Or could add "artwork by Djordje Ungar", but since the site is in Persian, the link back here would be enough.
Cheers.

ooh, u speak croatian:) ma gle, znam ja da je mjesec nocno nebo zvjezde itd savrsen prizor, svaki dan, svaku vecer. jer kad pogledas u nebo, vidis sve. proslost, sadasnjost i buducnost. i iako tak mislis, tvoja fotka nije miserable attempt. trudila si se sto bolje prikazati savrsenstvo i uspjela si. trust me, i know:) btw odakle si?
