When most folks hear "NFT" nowadays they are thinking of "Bored Apes" or "CryptoPunks". Those are so called "PFP Projects" (Profile Pic Projects) that generate 10,000 "unique" creatures and then people buy them for lots of money to use for their Twitter Avatar.

I don't do that kind of work. I create 1/1 art (single edition). Each of my renders is created "by hand" on on my workstation. I'm making the creative decisions that go into each piece rather than letting the computer generate each one. Still, I do have certain projects where I've done a small number of color or time-of-day variations that would fit the definition of an "NFT Collection". I did a test with my "Winterborn" snowflakes and they sold quickly.

I have always thought my "Daisy" series would be a good candidate for a collection and it's now live on Foundation. Two of them have sold already. I also thought it would be fun to add at least one brand new daisy to the series and here it is...the "Iridescent Daisy". It would have been easier to do something basic and more monochrome (like the 2002 versions) but I wanted to try something different. I hope you enjoy it. Might try one more...

"Bad Dual Screen image"
@Ryan iridescentdaisy12x1440p.jpg (5120x1440)

only half the image loads.

I like it, but it is better on a bigger screen. On the smaller screen it is too much in your face and the detail isn't seen very clearly.

One of THE most stunning images I've seen from DB, Ryan. I've been a member for many years and this may go down as one that may stay up there permanently/a very long time for me. My eyes are so happy to wander this image and the gorgeous rainbows of color, washing into each other. I cannot thank you enough for this one.

As for the multi-screen image, I use the UHD version and spread it across three monitors (two side by side 22" monitors) and a 13" MBPro Retina underneath them, to get as much of the full flower effect that I can. The cropped multiscreen version lost 50% of the flower and I wanted it back. I use Fresco multi-screen app for the Mac to do this.

"I agree with Eric about the multis"
Hi Ryan,

I wonder if it might be better to just zoom out for the multi-screen renders and have some blank areas on the sides. The severely cropped versions really don't show how beautiful this piece truly is.

"UNREAL on a 4K"
Ryan this has become the centerpiece of my studio. Absolutely UNREAL. One of your best works!

That's really the only way to do it with this type of render unfortunately. It's how I did the multiscreen for Sunburst Daisy and it's the only option here too. There's no way to add more petals on the sides that would look realistic at all.

Simply amazing. If you stare at it for any length of time the hallucinogenic effect is quite startling.

"2x / 3x"
Got cut in half!

But maybe that was on purpose. Not to my liking. Prefer the single screen version.

I love this as much as Starburst Daisy.

"If Only We Could Grow Metal Flowers!"
Love this one! I have the original as a lock screen on one of my PCs. This one is such a new cool version it might replace that one!

there is so much going on here--yet I cannot pull my eyes away from the center. incredible!

"Smiley Day"
So, you just made my wife's day with this new version of your daisy series. Sunburst daisy is her absolute favorite, and she loves this new version!
