Transportal Delta-Niner by Syd Baker

Photographic Prints

Available to buy on…

One of several working transportals on planet Amethyst, a starliner is being guided into the gate by a native Ribbon-flier. The fliers are unique to each portal and make sure the liners are centered, and always perform a pre-flight check that it’s all clear flying weather on the other side.

    I LOVE portals! Tweaks the dreamer for sure. :o) Wonderful image Syd!

  • Thanks Jenny, I revisited the weird structure made by your wonderful fractal on planet Amethyst, turns out this is what those big things are for! How exciting, and I could use a vacation!

    Good grief that’s lovely! Particularly like the contrast between the roughness of the portal and that twining tendril structure, just amazing :D

  • Thanks, I wanted an organic connection to the stone, sort of electrical conduit type thing.

    Fantastic Syd. Do I see some GroBoto in there? That is a ripper spacecraft.
    Cheers mate.

  • Thanks Peter, yes Groboto on the portal as well as the little ribbon-flier, I made the portal accidentally from a terrain object and tweaking some parameters I didn’t understand. There is a smaller similar portal HERE but nobody in their right mind touches it, no one knows where it goes, it just “goes”.
