Hemisphere Shells - Innocent & Sinister Variants
Higher resolution versions at Imgur, Dribbble (1, 2), and G+ Photos.
A number of artists that I follow have played with the idea of placing a set of hemispheres of decreasing scale inside of one another, and some of those have been pretty inspiring to me. Here's me giving that idea a shot, with a little bit of motion.
The color scheme for the rims in the top "Innocent" variant was borrowed from my design "Warm Wooden Toy".
The color scheme and lighting setup in the bottom "Sinister" variant was originally an accident that came about when I was trying to create a new "blackbody" light source - but I sneezed while entering the temperature value. The hemispheres were instantly transformed into a mechanical creature that obviously had an eye - and it was glowing as though it was staring at the viewer in a hot rage... it was plotting something sinister.
