intense sunlight

beltaguise replied to your photo

Do you mind if I ask how you got that intense glowy sunlight effect? I spent a veeery long time trying to figure out the exact same thing awhile back

Basically I just shade with a very dark color, and apply a small gradient of some bright saturated color along the borders to emulate diffused light.

Varying light angles and intensity for mood! I love back light HAHAHa–

Can work it in other hues, too! And I guess here’s a quick walk through of smth similar to that pic you were talkin about, with windows of strong light.

Draw the projected light over the subject

Add shadows on the character. Moved the light going past the character hitting the floor.

Overlay the bleeding light!

I use a lot of this kinda thing in finished pics too– here’s a recent example!

Nov 15, 2015 - So proud of my T. tectorum! It’s slowly getting taller and fuller since I got it 4 months ago. During fall and winter, my condo doesn’t get much sunlight, and the intensity of the light is lower. Thus I use a fluorescent lightbulb as a supplement. Tectorum species prefers more intense sunlight than other tillandsias, so hopefully this Canadian winter won’t kill it!

Time to wake up Philae, you’ve got work to do

It looks like there may be some sunny news right around the corner for the Rosetta mission!

Mission controllers are now expecting the Philae lander to wake up!

As the comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko nears the Sun, several parts of the comet will get lit that are currently not getting any Sunlight.

Specifically, as shown in the image above, there’s a wall where controllers think Philae landed called Perihelion Cliff which covers the lander in shadow, preventing its solar panels from charging the batteries.

As the aphelion of 67P’s orbit is left far behind, however, it nears perihelion: the portion of its orbit where it’s closest to the Sun.

It’s being said now that when the perihelion is reached, the area of Perihelion Cliff will be engulfed in intense sunlight. This should happen around August.

The Rosetta mission remains one of the most exciting robotic missions ever conducted.
