Ryan's TipJar

An exercise in creating trees with multiple trunks using Plant Factory and a placing them in a "volumetric" Vue environment. Or just creating something nice and lush for your desktop :-) This one went through a couple of different revisions as a I tweaked the size of the leaves to allow more (or less) light to penetrate the canopy. I may or may not add those versions to the Pickle Jar. I really prefer this version.

"Dapplewood winter"
Ryan, my hope and expectation for a "Dapplewood Winter" are almost too much to bear!

I didn't comment on your night version as I didn't like it. But this version I really do like. The flowers and teh light are wonderful

"Missing one"
There seems to be a missing format: 1366x768 (16:9). I'd like to have it on my laptop, as it looks pretty good on my desktop.

I agree with Angie; this would be great as your next seasonal series.

"Yeah, I could live there....."
Very serene, I agree different seasonal takes would be a lot of fun! As usual, your night version is just as beautiful.

I would really love to be here, soaking up all the Beauty.

This is very Beautiful, Great Render my Frind

This one is so beautiful! I could totally see this one done for each season. I still regularly use the Spring/Summer/Autumn/Winterwood wallpapers ??

Beautiful! Would love to see a night one with lightnong bugs! ;)

"Love it!"
In my mind's eye, it's substantially closer to a 10 than a 9, so I gave it the 10. Emphasizing that it's my opinion only, I'd prefer the color warmed up a tad, but other than that, it's amazing. The image conveys a profound sense of peace and tranquility. Very appealing. Now Ryan, I haven't looked yet, but I sure hope you didn't embed a hungry predator into the underbrush like you did a few years back! ;) That would alter the gestalt totally...

Wonderful! Better than the Canopy Creek renders.

I love this one! So very summery. You captured the effects that you were working on perfectly. The depth can be felt. I will add this one to my gallery for sure.

"Amazing Amazon"
Perhaps a hidden hideaway in the Peruvian portion of the rain forests!

Fri June 23, 2017 at 11:11 am

I love it! it is as if I am right there...enjoying the peace and this oasis of serenity! Ahhhh...

Fri June 23, 2017 at 10:14 am

Idyllic! I'd love to just spend time relaxing among the flowers enjoying the rays of the sun dappling across the water.

Peaceful and inviting, indeed. As long as we're talking about hiking into and lingering in this place, though, maybe there could be a version with a footpath instead of a stream? It'd give us would-be visitors someplace to stand... :-)

This is really great work! Very realistic!

You continue to amaze.

"Just Gorgeous"
Gorgeous. Very serene.

Just beautiful!

Thu June 22, 2017 at 3:24 pm

This is beautiful. I was just wishing for something green and peaceful, but also bright. It's like you read my mind. :-) Thank you!

Thu June 22, 2017 at 3:17 pm

Well done! Looks like a nice place to sit and rest.

My newest favorite!

You outdid yourself again Ryan!!! This render is completely amazing!!! I absolutely love it!!!

Thu June 22, 2017 at 1:55 pm

"I wants..."
As long as the wood fairies are friendly, this is a scene that is instinctively inviting...nice work Ryan, you nailed this one...too.

This is really great! I definitely give it a 10.

I agree with Mark "10 isn't enough"! I can't wait for the dual screen. I will minimize all my work apps and marvel at my beautiful background for a while :)

"10 isn't enough"
I'm rating this a 10 simply because that's as high as the scale goes. it deserves much higher than 10, however.

Lovely. Very warm, peaceful and inviting. I love all the colourful flowers, too. I look forward to the multiscreen versions, so that I can 'turn my virtual head' and see what's to either side of this scene!

Little Prince
Very pretty. Makes me want to hike into the woods right now to sit by that stream. Wonderful addition.
