Son of Daedalus by JoeyJazz Son of Daedalus by JoeyJazz
A tribute to an alien.. ...lol... (for those, who actually don't read (that would mean that it's pointless to write this either - lol) - it's a tribute to Alyn's "Icarus's Wish" [link] - no part of his image was used).

EDIT: HI-RES! - Fullview is a MUST :D :D (well, actually - it's just 35% of the 6000x4500px fullview)

I always thought "the yellow alien" was jark, or is this a tribute to both him and alyn? :D Great piece nevertheless. :)

Well you got me there for a while and then I had that "waaaaiiiit a minute" moment. :D It's ok I like how this looks joejesus, but still recognize it as alyn's piece. :)

Also re: the comment mentioning that the original has no change in tones. I actually find that his (Alyn's) starfield does blend in quite a bit with the tone of the backdrop, therefore giving the impression of greater variation in that regard.

Well - the problem with Icarus's Wish is that those stars are actually really tiny (which I really LOVE about it), making much more vast impression - it's a nice, inspirational piece.

One thing is that alyn's style is kinda a challenge and it is clearly obvious he isn't a cheap "filter" guy. On the other hand - I'm glad I didn't completely recreate it - it's more like Alyn's Icarus's Wish in JoeJesus style... ...which is the most further I would go - as Greg Martin once said - enough of cheap copies :)

cosmicbound Featured By Owner Jun 4, 2009
Ah, sure, although it wouldn't quite be a cheap copy to do so ;) in fact, the cheap copies are those which fall far short, although yours is certainly not in that category! I also wouldn't call such distant stars a problem, though I seem to get what you mean, in that you didn't want to replicate it in his style.

If ever you do make it a print let us know in a journal or something, thats if its ok with Alyn of course, i like his but yours really pops out.

Also could you point me in the direction of some good space art tutorials, ive done a few and im always on the lookout for a good space art tutorial but can never find them, i google but always end up with the same kinds of tuts on space art.Thanks.

Not bad Alyn! Oh wait. Actually, this is a really well done recreation, I think you did a good job. :) That said, I do actually prefer the original starfield in Icarus's Wish, due to the variation in colour/tone, as well as the fact that it is far less random in its distribution - yours looks a little too much like cloud multiply, honestly. Variation argument goes for the nebulae as well. It is by no means bad however, as I said. Nicely done overall.

Another strong piece Joe. Your ability to bring a real feel to the lighting of this scene is always inspiring.
