Black Hole Sun

January 10, 2009

This maze is named after the Soundgarden song “Black Hole Sun”, and is fairly appropriately titled considering there’s a massive black hole with swirling colors coming towards it in the picture.  This maze took me about two weeks to complete – editing took less than a day, however.  The paths you’ll notice are somewhat grainy – this is the natural effect of the pen bleeding on the the paper and not only does it help keep an authentic look, but its also unnoticeable when scaled back to the normal zoom.

If you were attempting to actually do this maze, I’d say your chances are about 5%.  The overwhelming majority of starting paths never have a chance to make it to the end, so you’ll find yourself starting over and over.  The start is in the upper right (choose any path coming from the edge of the picture).  The end is the one little path at the bottom of the black hole.

Any questions, comments, or if you’re interested in getting a print, please just write me an email at www.mazedojo.com!

Here are two alternate versions of my Planet Caravan maze.  These were simple ‘experiments’ mainly just done to learn about different tricks and tools in photoshop.

This first one is just a smeared background of the original with several effects layered on top of it:

Planet Caravan II

The second is the same maze but with a different background.  I was trying to learn about the line tool in photoshop and thats the background I came up with:

Heartland

And here is that background just by itself:
