21wallpaper asked me to make a set of wallpapers with the theme being very open. I wanted to experiment with the idea of doing a dynamic wallpaper for macOS, a wallpaper that changes with the position of the sun, as it was relatively new at the time and I hadn't seen an illustrated one that had already been done.
The technical side involved a lot of trial and error as I had to find the correct altitude and azimuth data of the sun for the image so it would match the conditions in real time. Luckily there was a script to get me started made by Marcin Czachurski but was aimed at users with photos in set locations.Commissioned for:
