I was watching the movie "Another Earth" when I noticed something familiar.  To be more specific, artwork that looked like something I made a few years ago. I used the word "familiar" very loosely, because I'd recognize something that I made anywhere from very few details.

At the 17 minute mark of the movie, the main character goes on a website to write a small essay for a contest.  Guess what artwork is used as part of the background of that website? This:

It's just rotated, but it's exactly the same! The flare has the same angles and the Earth is showing the exact same position.  I made that in 3D, meaning that I had complete freedom of rotating the planet when I chose that angle.  The possibility of it being a coincidence are, well, astronomical.

I can't really say much because, even though I made that, it was using artwork from NASA.  But, even if I were able to make a ruckus, I'm not sure if I would.  I'm not bitter about it (like other times in which I've been).  It's something new to me and I'm just sorting it out.  I'm far more curious and satisfied than upset and bitter.

Given that a lot of people do artwork like this and many of you read this, how would you feel if one of your pieces was used in a minor part of a movie?

Oh, and to add to the curiosity: The scene is at the 17 minute mark of the DVD's 5th chapter.  My birth date is on the 17th day of the 5th month.  Ding! :diny:

EDIT: Since I can't take screenshots from my PS3's Blu-Ray, I had to take a picture of it, much like kids did in the 90s to show their video game high scores :lol:

I have loved your work for a long time. A friend of mine is an insanely huge space nut, and your work would be perfect. 

I was wondering if you did or were going to do a 2014 space calendar. If so, I would like to order one. If not, I was wondering if I could get a print of Planet Marbles or Lunar Eclipse.

Thank you so much!
