Starry skies over New Zealand

Consider this: You can see less than 1% of the electromagnetic spectrum and hear less than 1% of the acoustic spectrum. As you read this, you are traveling at 220 km/sec across the galaxy. 90% of the cells in your body carry their own microbial DNA and are not “you.” The atoms in your body are 99.9999999999999999% empty space and none of them are the ones you were born with, but they all originated in the belly of a star. Human beings have 46 chromosomes, 2 less than the common potato. The existence of the rainbow depends on the conical photo-receptors in your eyes; to animals without cones, the rainbow does not exist. So you don’t just look at a rainbow, you create it.

More Hyper Light Drifter/Breath of the Wild hybrid inspired pixel art. Really like the colors during sunset for this one.

Daylight: Blue tint with yellow light rays

Sunset: Orange tint with yellow light rays and an orange gradient coming from the top down

Night: Dark blue tint with light rays coming up from the lights instead of light rays coming from the sky

After a LONG time, here we have a new Get The Look post!

James Erskine was not only a handsome dude but also a Scottish Judge and (for my eyes at least) a master in mixing brown and blue.
