Ruby Depression by ChaosFissure Ruby Depression by ChaosFissure
Ice, darkness, and a fiery ruby red.  The two former will be here soon!

The blur on this was nightmarish to work with, and was necessary for some of the sparkly effects.  I ended up rendering it twice as large and downsizing it for added sharpness, though I'm not sure how much it helped over just using a larger supersample...

Anyways, technical rant aside, I hope you all enjoy it, as I personally really like how it turned out despite the blurmageddon...

I like this a lot, to me it seems like it's a road going up, sort of away from the darkness. The way I interpret it is that this is the road that leads up and away from the depression. At the same time as you don't exactly know where you are going, and the road might be tough..

Again, great piece with a wonderful blur c;

In this case, the ruby colors in the image are overwhelmed and being eaten away by the darker colors surrounding it, and the sadness of a a fiery gem such as this being consumed by ice and darkness was what I was intending to represent.  Although ruby happens to be the birthstone for July, which is where my birthday resides, depression is not part of who I am mentally or physically; the title was just intended to more poignantly charge the scene with the emotion I associated with the colors at the time ;o

It feels like a winter's night. The blur is just right for the feeling this portrays. A passion of hate but excitement towards the cold winter to come. For me, the winter is here, and it's cold. This is portraying the feelings I have now.

This was made on uhhh Sunday, which was before Titan hit us over here in NoVA.  It was 58 degrees that afternoon, and in under 24 hours the temperature then sank to 1.  Your analysis of this is spot on based on what I was trying to convey.  I actually was looking forward to the storm despite wanting it to just be spring already -- I had a midterm on Monday that I really wanted to study a bit more for, and now I have two extra weeks to do so :D
