here is my second rendering of the "baltic sea anomaly". a close up.
it is inspired by the famous sonar images that the ocean explorer team published.
nobody knows what it is.it is an U.S.O (unknown submersed object) i tried to reflect that somehow in this image by making it not obvious.
similar to my first image about the anomaly ([link]
) even if it might be inclined to suggest the "ufo crash-theory".
it could be an spacecraft,crashed into the baltic sea thousands of years ago,ancient architecture,some kind of forgotten shield of the gods or simply an oddly shaped stone.
the speculation that the anomaly is an "crashed ufo" is growing ,specially after of the recent coverage on CNN. in almost all articles you find around the web and reports on tv it is compared to the millennium-falcon,because of its similar shape. (i know- star wars purists say it´s the "ebon hawk"... )
of course the ocean explorer team keeps the coordinates secret,until the expedition (called "Operation Baltic Discovery 2012) which is probably going to take place in May. they are simply waiting for better weather.
meanwhile i´m having fun illustrating the unknown,supporting the ocean explorer team on the way.
as a base for my painting i used an 3d-rendering of the object,made by my brother.but it ended up completely over-painted,buried under several layers of photo-textures.some from cgtextures [link]
me and my bro also work on an little 3d animation and more paintings about the anomaly.... stay tuned.
