Edadh and Uiluann by PrimalAce Edadh and Uiluann by PrimalAce
This is my impression of a world created and described by two talented brothers [link]

It is called Edaðh. As you can see it's a disc-world. From their website:

"Edaðh is roughly disc-shaped and conical. Many people have now sailed to the edge of the world to see for themselves the Infinite Waterfalls: the places where the waters of the seas fall away forever."

I tried to create an image of this world based on realism and pseudo science. In my interpretation the waterfalls at the edge of the world fall and gather around the underearth creating vast cloud formations. These formations make their way back towards the surface where they fall as rain, replenishing the oceans.

The moon Uiluann is a perpetually cloud covered ocean world that orbits within Edaðh's atmosphere. My explanation as to how this can possibly work is that the moon doesn't orbit within the atmosphere but instead creates so much of it itself that the excess forms a bridge of sorts to Edaðh. This could be due to life that grows in its ocean. In any case theres going to be some artistic licence here.

Hope you all like it. I know its been a while since I submitted anything substantial and I'm glad I got this done. Check out the website above and find out what this pictures all about.

Very good, specially the details of clouds, It gives me an idea of how the mechanism of the clouds can (possibly) work in a world like this... Great concept!

I think you'll find that's two questions ;)

The light source is to the far right in that picture and as for the seasons you'll have to ask the guys that imagined the world in the first place. There is a link in the description.

I painted it, but I didn't design the concept, I just imagined what it would look like from a description.

The originality doesn't come from me but the guys who create the world at the website above. I was inspired by their description to create this :)

Wow. I haven't looked at your work in quite a while...
It's immensely impressive!
And I love that you have a pseudo-scientific explanation :D

first up - GREAT picture. Love it!

second up - GREAT picture. Love it!

truly amazing. on the physics thing - there is indeed a logic behind it, but for that, one will have to wait awhile. All in good time...

Should have known you'd be on here somewhere. Thanks for the comment, you're work is really inspiring and I just had to have a go at creating something based on your world. It's a shame you've not got any maps of Edadh on your site, they would have been very helpful :P

I did have a good think about how the Islands would float on Uiluann myself but I'll wait and see.

check out the 'Edadh' pages. the backdrop to this has a map. This background can also be found in the 'downloads' section...

Woah! amazing! I've always wondered how a floating Island type world would look like!

PrimalAce Featured By Owner Jun 10, 2009
Thanks. Funny thing is there's a bunch of tiny floating islands on that moon as well according to the website. The moon is all ocean and the islands float above it. God knows how I could figure a scientific way to explain that :P
