Goodbye by waltervermeij Goodbye by waltervermeij
My first entry for the Eternal Reminiscence contest.

The idea was to combine a planet being sucked into a wormhole with a bit of an 'ascending to heaven' kind of theme.

Hope you like it! :)

---

Edit:
Made some changes to it:

- Added more detail to the wormhole
- Changed the starfield
- Added clouds to the planet surface

---
All made in Photoshop CS4

At least it's good that thing is a wormhole, which means that Earth will not be destroyed and it also means that it escaped it's fate from being incinerated by the Sun when it will go Red Giant.
Still, awesome work !! Love it.

The Atmosphere would probably be pealed off before being sucked into the Black Hole, by theory, so we'd all die before being squished and spit out. Such a nice way to die c':

Earth: "Goodbye"
Black Hole: *Om nom nom nom*

It's a wormhole, not a black hole.

This is amazing not to mention kinda creepy, imagine this happening to Earth, what a horrible way to die...

Thanks. But maybe the planet isn't being destroyed, just moved to another place in the galaxy, who knows :)

Maybe, but as far as astronomers know, anything that enters a black hole will be destroyed

Chilling! I almost feel as though I may be sucked up into the wormhole as well. Beautiful colors! :clap:

Where do I find this contest? I unintentionally made a picture that I think would go well in this contest :3 And to think my twiddling and messing with brushes would get me nothing but a few glances.

It reminds me of a white hole, the oposite of a black hole, which casts life and matter into the universe rather than sucking it away.

This could be the birth of a new planet :)

Well.. That's my poin't 'o view. :)

Thanks, I've been thinking about editing the pic a little to add some more details and make it sharper because I think it's a bit too blurry right now... Well I still have a month to do that before the contest is closed :D :D
