"The best artwork has no big sizes!"
Ryan, i'm very interested in your early artwork, but you didn't rendered it even at 1280x1024. A pity. Want to see at least 1280x1024. Some works are really great, for example, this one.

To think this was created in 1999. Like many of your other works, would like to see this in 2800x1800 for retina.

Once again, I really like some of the alternate pickle jar versions in other colours, but am frustrated by the restricted choice of resolutions for those. The best provided is 1600x1200, but the resolution I'd really like is 1920x1200. Could you please upload some bigger versions? Thanks...

"1080p problem"
It seems that the 1080p render has a been cut from the right and left sides.

The picture dimension at the moment is 1906x1080 instead of 1920x1080.



Can you fix it, whenever you find the time?

Thanks Ryan.

The Skeleton Coast. Actually a few of your "landscapes" have similar elements to pictures of the Skeleton Coast I have seen

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Skeleton_Coast and photos of a place called Sperrgebiet. May I request/suggest a new piece similar to this might be a worthy endeavor. Thank you.

This image evokes so much of the sacrifice of war. Here in Australia, major war memorials always have a fire that never goes out - a reminder of the consuming nature of war.



They shall grow not old

As we that are left grow old

Age shall not weary them

Nor the years condemn

At the going down of the sun

And in the morning

We will remember them

Ryan,



The volcano looks like a Hershey's Kiss. I like the scene but you tend to make things too tall for the surrounding landscape. The scene would look better with a more natural looking peak.



Still, very nice.

The new pickle thumb nails are awesome. And so is the new version. Not sure which i like better, the sand and the fog/blowing sand (kinda makes it mysterious), are awesome in the first one. The 2nd one the sky is amazing with it's clarity.

Cool how a few minor changes make the same image totally different.

Certainly deserving of a 2013/2014 update! Something about the feelings evoked by the high castle walls and rigidly-defined stream contrasting with the mist and autumn trees makes for a great little piece.

Shibaozhai
Shibaozhai: Created 1/22/99 using Bryce 3D, and Zenstar's Tree Druid plugin for Ray Dream Studio. After seeing the incredibly realistic work of Bills Munns, I decided to try my hand at rendering an actual place.

Shibaozhai means "stone treasure stronghold" in Chinese. I was watching a special on "The Learning Channel" called "Lost Treasures of the Yangtze", where I saw this temple. The temple is built directly into a solid rock face overlooking the river.

This temple will most likely be underwater when the Chinese government succeeds in damming the Yangtze. Plans are in the works to build a giant wall around the temple, so that it will actually sit in the middle of the swollen river. The likelihood of this actually happening, however, is uncertain. There are many many treasures that will be lost forever when the waters rise and flood the Three Gorges. Read more about it on Wikipedia.

Either way, this is my first render of a real world location. I've taken some liberties (of course), but I hope you enjoy it nonetheless.

"Still a Favorite"
It's almost time to renew my subscription, and yes I've had a ball finding something I like every time I visit. And more fun making sure I have 5 versions for the PC, the 2 laptops, the phone and the Zune. But as much as I love the planet scapes, the wonderful building exteriors, the day/night versions, the desert isles and jungles, I keep coming back to Percieval's Choise. Maybe you've decided still lifes aren't your cup of tea, but if you ever change your mind, I'm ready for more like this.

Thanks for a fun year!

"An invitation?"
That's what I think of when I see this - that the swing is an open invitation; out in the middle of nowhere, nobody's in it, no houses (and therefore no property owners) nearby; no playground monitors or spotters or any of the other complicated trappings we've loaded upon the simple act of play. I can climb right on. Nobody's going to run me off or laugh at me for still liking these things when I'm over 50. So...why not? The best of your works always take me to a place where I can shed my inhibitions and be as playful, curious, adventuresome or daring as I like...and this is one of them.
