Soul Hunter by Amras-Arfeiniel Soul Hunter by Amras-Arfeiniel
"Minbari: jealous, selfish, private. We have saved only a few. Very rare. Rarest of all: their leader, Dukhat, dying. Your fault. Your war. The pinnacle of Minbari evolution. We came. I, others. They made a wall of bodies to stop us. He died .. and his dreams, his ideas .. all that he was, all that he could ever be .. gone, wasted. Jealous. Gone. Gone."
-- Soul Hunter #1 to Sinclair in Babylon 5:"Soul Hunter"

The story of this picture:
One of the most noted moments that involve the Soul Hunters was the beginning of the Earth-Minbari War when the Minbari leader Dukhat was killed when his ship met the Humans. Seeing the opportunity to preserve a powerful soul, the Soul Hunters attempted to take the soul of Dukhat but failed as the Minbari had a wall of their warriors protecting the Minbari leader.
What you see is the damaged ship of the Grey Council on which Dukhat is dying and the Soul Hunters who are coming to take his soul.
We never saw this scene.

I really like this picture! I think it is one of my best so far. :)

You should download to look at it. The DA thumbs are full of jpg artifacts these days. :(

I think it is boring if you just have the picture. It gives the pic much more when you have a story behind it.

So true my friend! So many say nothing not even what it is or anything about it. There was an artist that did Bonzi tree pics but said nothing So I had to say something to him. Dude is this your plants, a stamp what awesoempic but what?!

It's a very nice scene, congrats to the DD, however, for my taste the shadows on the planets are too 'cut off' without blending over from light to dark enough, but maybe that's wanted and it's only my opinion in this case.

Well, maybe the atmosphere of those planets isn't thick enough for more diffuse light. :shrug: ;)

Oh so they were rendered? My mistake... I usually work on planets via Photoshop.

:iconamras-arfeiniel:
Amras-Arfeiniel Featured By Owner Jun 27, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yes, they were rendered. :)
But I think you are right. The shadow line could be a bit smoother. I will do more research about the day/night line on planets for the next pic. :)

Keep in mind the way light plays on each planet's surface. Based on the rate it spins, you will have more or less of an oval shape...no planet is a perfect ball. So the light may, or may not have a wide area of surface with dim light.
