This render was inspired by an article I saw online imagining what our skies would look like with rings like Saturn.

"Reminds me of northern lights"
This looks like a cross between the aurora borealis and a rainbow. I love it!!!

This is a unique picture that I like out of all your space wallpapers.

Maybe this is how things actually look on Saturn. The rings provide light since the sun is so far away.

"Love it!"
I love how this looks. If you do any other versions, can you do one that's bright and deep pinks? I would love to grab it for my office, home and phone. This is one of my favorites so far!

"I saw it too"
I too read said article and I've been digging your space renders for over 10 years. keep it up!

This is an awesome example of how you can use the color palette to illustrate your skills.

Ryan, is a multi monitor version of this in the works? Or will it remain single-screen only? Many Thanks!

This one needs dual screen versions now.

"How did I miss this gem?!"
Love it! Somehow missed it being posted, but it's my new desktop :)

"Very Cool"
Really like this. Cool concept. It's a nice sceane and one I'd love to be looking at from my balcony !. I don't have multiple monitors yet, but as said in a previous comment, the rings would look pretty cool across 2 or 3 monitors. I too would be interested to see a blue version (!).

I'd love to see a pink version of this. I absolutely love your work but it's hard to find one that has a more girlish theme. This is almost glittery, and it's beautiful. A sunset type color scheme with pink would be amazing if you find time one day!

"Really like this!"
This is a great render and it seems ideal for dual screen. The ring arc stretching across screens would be beautiful. I like that your rings aren't on the exact same plane and appear slightly disorganized from a distance, seems accurate.

"Cool Idea"
This is such a cool idea. I love your images that are not-quite earth.

Sun January 25, 2015 at 7:55 am

I love planets and Saturnlike worlds and I also love aquatic animals.

Best mix of the two ever :)

Fri January 23, 2015 at 12:14 pm

Where is the 5760 X 1080!!! :( I like this.

Thu January 22, 2015 at 7:14 pm

I'd pay a lot to go and swim with those dolphins. :D Imagine the resort possibilities...

And in the can't please everybody category, how about a blue themed version?

Wed January 21, 2015 at 9:16 am

"not bad"
When I first saw it I though the rings were out of perspective. For me the top ring looks more like a tube. Its making that ring look closer to the camera than the others.

Tue January 20, 2015 at 9:42 pm

This is beautiful! I love the colors and the concept. I'm not bothered by the "sharp" appearance of the rings. In up close images of Saturn's rings from spacecraft such as Cassini, some of the divisions between rings are incredibly sharp. So the ring appearance here seems realistic.

Mon January 19, 2015 at 9:23 am

"Great Colors"
I was so confused looking at this at first. I feel like with rings this bright the mountains could never be so dark so there's a distinct cut off in the lighting which was messing with me for a minute until I figured out what was going on.

The perspective of the rings doesn't bother me I think that looks fine.

Mon January 19, 2015 at 8:04 am

I hope a dual screen comes available! This is by far my favorite recent piece! Love the whales? in it also!

Sun January 18, 2015 at 9:33 pm

"Not bad, however"
Add a little more to the background to the left ot the mountains. Also maybe add "something else' in the water. Great color scheme!

Sun January 18, 2015 at 3:43 am

Very cool! I love the colors of the rings :D I can't say I've ever seen another artist use this theme for scenery. Why are there whales though?

"Needs work"
The rings don't appear to be on the same plane when I look at this. It is as though each ring is above the other as well as further away. More like a rainbow than rings in perspective. Also I think the mist and fog at the bottom clutters it up too much. I love your work but, respectfully, I think this one could do with more tweeking. Thanks

Sat January 17, 2015 at 9:32 am

I love the concept, but there's something not quite right about the mountains - at least I think they are mountains!

Sat January 17, 2015 at 7:15 am

" 2560 x 1600 loading 1/3rd only"
Hi Ryan

Also only getting 1/3 of the 2560 x 1600 version

Sat January 17, 2015 at 5:34 am

"I like it"
I enjoy the concept. I like the colors. I'll echo another reviewer and agree that the edge of the rings are too sharp.

Fri January 16, 2015 at 8:59 pm

I have to disagree with the grainy part. IMHO the closer the rings are, I would tend to think you can pick out more detail in them, hence all the "grainy" stuff that makes them up. But I do have to agree with the perspective point of view. It does tend to draw the eye to the right side of the picture, instead of the overall view.

Fri January 16, 2015 at 4:31 pm


So much grain. Rings at this distance would appear very smooth, the details should blend together.

Fri January 16, 2015 at 12:54 pm

Having not lived on a planet with rings such as Saturn, I'll refrain from making any assumptions on how they should appear. It's all about the art of imagination!

Fri January 16, 2015 at 4:41 am

"Very Nice"
Any chance of this wallpaper for dual screens?? picklejar?

Fri January 16, 2015 at 0:07 am

"quite good"
I was not going to be critical, but I do have to agree that the rings are off. The right side is larger than the left, which would indicated that the right side is closer. Yet IF the rings are in a stable orbit like they are on Saturn, and they would not last if they were not, then at any point on the planet, the apex of the arch would be either north or south, assuming they're orbiting the geographic equator, and the sides would be of equal distance from your perspective.

"Very Nice!"
@Ryan I tried to download the 2560 x 1600 (16:10) version of this but I'm only getting about 1/3 of the image. I downloaded the lossless version and it works. Just thought you should know.

Thu January 15, 2015 at 2:48 pm

"a good concept"
I agree with others that something is off where the rings meet and go behind the mountains. The edge doesn't read exactly right. I like the colors and tone. The idea is a really good one though. It has great potential.

Thu January 15, 2015 at 1:57 pm

"Edges too clean"
I love the overall look, but something about the very clear edges on some of the rings (particularly the top one) bothers me a bit. I vastly prefer the ones that fade out such as the wide yellow band in the center.

Thu January 15, 2015 at 1:28 pm

"Love the composition"
Very good render overall, but I do agree with oldsailor about the color choice. Blues or perhaps purples would make this piece a perfect 10.

Thu January 15, 2015 at 1:25 pm

"good but..."
Somehow, the overall color bothers me.

Thu January 15, 2015 at 12:54 pm

Absolutely one of your top ten best images.
