So, dear non-unit users,

@rikschennink did this take ~5 hours to do? I’m just observing the duration between two toots 😄 I’ve been struggling with blogging forever. Motivation fades and returns in a yearly cycle. But I think my poor GitHub Pages set-up is partially to blame.

The reasons to blog sound all to familiar. I’m going to revamp the blog, create a backlog of ideas and start blogging once more.

This is why sites that don’t rely on JS are most robust.

@maxsteenbergen Ah, I’m starting to see it. The nebula needs some depth. nebulae tend to appear like very complex a solid or fluid mass because of it’s massive size. Considering it’s size, the 'fluid dynamics' caused by the ship seems overkill. In fact, space has little mass to interact with, so the flow caused by the ship is minimal. For artistic reasons, some curl (vorticity or w/e it’s called) could improve the fluid-y appearance.

@maxsteenbergen Galaxies are generally depicted less bright. The galaxy we’re in is hardly visible from planet earth. Unless all stars go supernova simultaneously or someone created a Death Star that blows up galaxies, this seems an overly bright scene. All in all, some sense of depth would improve the piece significantly, assuming you are trying to depict a dart throwing galaxy.

@maxsteenbergen I’m not sure whether I’m looking at abstract art or not. The lower bit somewhat looks like a galaxy seen from top down because of the swirls (that looks stock Photoshop brush-y), yet the too blurry and bright horizontally stretched light/flare indicates a side-view. I also didn’t know galaxies shoot darts into oddly coloured glass clouds. But it could all be abstract.

@paulvanbuuren become friends and take it home. It’s too cute to leave it

@petervangrieken Dat is een redelijk extreme stap. Voorlopig ga ik beide media gebruiken en Twitter langzaam afbouwen. Misschien de bridge tool gebruiken die in een throod (toot thread) van @rikschennink genoemd werd:
