Albedo Threshold by neutrix Albedo Threshold by neutrix
Albedo Threshold. The continuation of  Nigredo Threshold

Everything was rendered in Vue, including the clouds, and landscapes. Decided to approach this project with more efficiency to save time with the renders, so I rendered most objects in passes/layers, and finalized the composite in Photoshop and After Effects (glows, fx, coloring, etc)

From wikipedia:
Following the chaos or massa confusa of the nigredo stage, the alchemist undertakes a purification in albedo, which is literally referred to as ablutio – the washing away of impurities. In this process, the subject is divided into two opposing principles to be later coagulated to form a unity of opposites or coincidentia oppositorum during rubedo.

Titus Burckhardt interprets the albedo as the end of the lesser work, corresponding to a spiritualization of the body. The goal of this portion of the process is to regain the original purity and receptivity of the soul. Psychologist Carl Jung equated the albedo with unconscious contrasexual soul images; the anima in men and animus in women. It is a phase where insight into shadow projections are realized, and inflated ego and unneeded conceptualizations are removed from the psyche.

Oh this is simply lovely. I'm a sucker for deep colors, and paralyzingly vibrant contrast, and you hit the nail on the head in this piece. Your symmetry really helps to bring it all together as well; it's subtle, yet essential, playing a crucial role in the message without distracting the audience from the brilliance of the colors and the fantastic scenery. Very, very well done. :iconbravoplz:
