I'd always planned to do a day version of "Ethos" and, looking at the calendar, it made perfect sense to set the scene in Autumn. In case you are wondering, I added some foliage to this version as I thought the original (while it worked for a night scene) was a little bare looking for this purpose.
Had this as my desktop wallpaper for a week before I noticed the unicorn! It's a very beautiful and striking image. Thanks.

I would only change one thing, the unicorn needs to be in the light. Love how it looks like the view of one who lurks in the dark.

I like the dark foreground with the bright colours at the back. It is vey effective

Awesome - was hoping for a fall Ethos, thanks!

I love the reflection of the autumn leaves in the water. I really enjoy your autumn renders, Ryan.

The colours are simply beautiful, and looking out from the cave is too cool, awesome render.

I don't usually think of cave views and autumn color together, but Ryan nailed it. Now if he'd go back to doing some more multiple monitor views ...

I love the mix of light and dark, and the bright colors. So inviting.

I like it but I might suggest 1 small change: less green in the trees.

I enjoyed Ethos, but this really grabs me. I admit that I'm a big sucker for autumnal foliage. Looking from the dark grotto into the bright day evokes a strong, "Light at the end of the tunnel" feeling of hope.

Looks really nice. Will there be multi-monitor versions?

I find your use of a Male Unicorn as the perspective point most interesting. Most people would think that a Unicorn to be about the size of a large horse, or perhaps a bit larger. Either way it shows the grand size of the grotto. The depth of the cave is also rather nice.
Well done! (again)

Beautiful! I love all of your Autumn renders.

Less mysterious, but still a beautiful piece. Thanks, Ryan!

Simply stunning! LOVE the vivid colors!! Thanks for another lovely render, Ryan!!
