Images taken using red, green and blue spectral filters were combined to create this natural color view. The images were acquired by Cassini on July 25, 2012, at a distance of about 103,000 miles from Titan.
It’s kind of fascinating the way Vortex’s colours wound up so weird in Fall of Cybertron.
Step 1: G1 Vortex’s Dreamwave profile art, used as his @tfwiki mainpic, gives his grey parts a beige tint (I’m told it’s like this in print, it’s not just a bad scan).
Step 2: A concept artist for the game uses that profile art as a reference when designing the Fall of Cybertron version, leading to a beige-ish Vortex. Additionally, his flappy hip skirts seem to be derived from the Dreamwave art’s hinged waist pieces. The concept artist also happens to used a redder shade of pink for Vortex’s torso.
Step 3: In the process of turning the concept art into an in-game model, the beige-ish grey becomes a full-blown beige, and the reddish pink becomes full-blown red (and also his head changes colour for some reason).
Vortices are a ubiquitous part of life, whether they’re draining down your bathtub or propelling underwater robots. In the latest video from the Lib Lab project, you can learn about how vortex rings form, what makes them last so long, and even make a vortex generator of your own. I can personally attest that vortex cannons are good for hours of entertainment, no matter your age. They’re even more fun with friends, as the Oregon State drumline demonstrates in the video. Want even more vortex fun? Check out leapfrogging vortices, vortex rings colliding head-on, and a giant 3 meter wide vortex cannon in action. (Video and image credit: Lib Lab)
