On December 2nd I was sitting and waiting for a render to finish
which I decided it would be fun to do an "IAMA" (Ask me Anything)
on Reddit.com. Redditor
"poker_face" asked if I could "draw" a Reddit Alien (TM). My
answer was "We'll See", which was taken to mean no.
As my kids know, "We'll See" can sometimes mean yes. I
had a such a nice visit with the Reddit community that I thought
it was the least I could do to try my hand that the iconic Alien.
Most Redditors seemed to know me from my "Fluorescence" mushrooms
so I thought it would be fun to combine the two. Especially since
my Christmas render is still churning. I roughed this out
and rendered it on my third-string workstation using Lightwave
This one is dedicated specifically to Redditor "Rethread".
As requested: Something "warm and fuzzy" for the Redditors.
I'd rate this a 10 if it were released in multimonitor versions. :)

I like the Wallpaper very much, and have been hoping for a Multi-screen version. I see 'Kostas Ger' requested a red-ish verion... That would be nice as well... However in either even, Please turn out a Multi-Screen Version.
BTW - Luv Your Work!

Any chance you could do the same for Android fans? That would be an extremely popular wallpaper if you could.

This is great! Thanks again for your AMA, the Reddit community <3's you!
Fri December 16, 2011 at 1:54 pm
That's so awesome! Can you consider making a Reddit version of the Bloom (redish) version of Fluoresence? It's my favourite one :) And it would fit better with the Red-dit red-ness ;)

Awesome Job Ryan too cute!!!

Lately I have been feeling lazy, and have not been commenting on many of your wallpapers, but this one jumped out at me.
It's an instant hit at work, and for the first day of having it I had to fight off the swarms of people gathering around my desk.
Excellent job Ryan!

Any chance of a multi-monitor render?
Sun December 11, 2011 at 11:23 am
Psychedelic stuff with the aliens... Nice one!
Sat December 10, 2011 at 9:42 pm
You should try it with Fluorescence6 then the aliens would match the texture :)
How did the Reddit go for you Ryan?
Sat December 10, 2011 at 12:56 am
Great job! Any chance you could make this into one of your animated wallpapers, where the tips of the antennas change color too? If I weren't already a member for life, this one would be the clincher!
Fri December 9, 2011 at 11:41 pm
You should do more colors. Red, Green, Yellow
Fri December 9, 2011 at 10:11 pm
I love it so much. The aliens are so very friendly...
"iPhone 4 Render"
Fri December 9, 2011 at 10:54 am
This is wonderful, my kids will absolutley love the aliens. Do you have any plans on making an iPhone 4 render, I'd love to be able to have this on my phone throughout the holidays :-)
Fri December 9, 2011 at 9:46 am
Drew a laugh from me, for sure. Thanks Ryan!
Fri December 9, 2011 at 9:01 am
Nice. That is a very interesting way to go with a loved classic background. From a distance, at first I thought you put Christmas lights around the 'shrooms (which would also make a great holiday scene), but the aliens are definitely fun and entertaining!
Fri December 9, 2011 at 8:45 am
Whoops. Just looked at other comments and noticed tnico said pretty much exactly what I said. That is funny. So, credit for that statement goes to them.
Fri December 9, 2011 at 8:43 am
This put a smile on my face this morning. It made me chuckle.
Fri December 9, 2011 at 8:10 am
Coolisimo... Now you've got to do the multi-screen!!!
(And I'm certain it would become a best-selling t-shirt.)
Fri December 9, 2011 at 6:42 am
This put a smile on me this morning. Thanks! :)
I agree with the T-shirt idea this is great!
Fri December 9, 2011 at 2:18 am
That one needs to be put on a T-shirt...I'd pay double for that one.One for your fee and one to your favorite charity...
Fri December 9, 2011 at 2:01 am
Any chance you could render a triscreen version of the original fluorescence without the aliens? I've been hoping you'd do that one day.
Fri December 9, 2011 at 1:51 am
Mushrooms,Big Smiles and Lit-up Eyes...Nice Job Ryan
Fri December 9, 2011 at 1:41 am
One of my favorite DB wallpapers with some goofy looking caracters staring at it...... Love it....
Thu December 8, 2011 at 11:31 pm
"Nice but am glad this isint the Christmas wallpaper!!"
Thu December 8, 2011 at 11:19 pm

Ryan, I like that you can arguably your most iconic image, and give it a little tweak every now and then, this time with some humour. I prefer the darker desktops, so this is great whilst we wait for the Christmas render.

^. And nice wallpaper!
"Makes Me Smile"
Thu December 8, 2011 at 8:36 pm
Thank you. I really needed something cheerful.
Thu December 8, 2011 at 5:51 pm
Nice combination. I agree that the aliens would go superb with the multicolor Fluorescence.
"AGREE on PJ variations"
Thu December 8, 2011 at 4:26 pm
Also I really can spell "fluorescence" despite my severe fat finger syndrome.
Thu December 8, 2011 at 4:09 pm
Very nice and very cute for the Christmas holidays. I'm printing this one out and putting it in my office!
"GREAT Work - Pickle Jar Variations, Please..."
Thu December 8, 2011 at 2:35 pm
It would be awesome to render these with all of the different Fluoresence variations you have, especially the Christmas version, as it *IS* that time of year.
Keep up the GREAT work!
Thu December 8, 2011 at 12:37 am
Great concept here. You couldn't have chosen a better center piece to feature these aliens. Flouresecense has always represented DB. This just works on so many levels. Excellent work again Mr. Bliss!
