An Octopus's Garden
"I've always loved underwater scenes and was thrilled to learn that Vue 10 had a new water rendering engine. I worked on this scene for about a week and it's gone through quite a few different revisions. Light and color behave differently underwater and this has been a learning experience for me.

This was my latest render and I would say that I am around 80% happy with it. I started in to fixing the last 19% when tragedy struck. Vue crashed and for some strange reason refused to reopen my scene file. The backup appears to be corrupted too. I'm glad my kids were at school when that happened because I get in trouble when I swear in front of them.

Anyway, the first file was lost so I worked over the weekend rebuilding it. I've changed a thing or two since the original (which can be found in the Pickle Jar). I've moved some things around and added some more sea life to the scene (the title has changed accordingly).

Hope you enjoy it! I look forward to many more underwater scenes with the new Vue render engine!

Elegy
"In August 2011 a Member (thanks Manu!) sent me a link to a photo on National Geographic's website which reminded him of my "Autumnwood" wallpaper. I thought it would be a fun project to make my own version of the scene and this is the result. Now, it isn't a complete copy. I didn't have the photo open in another window while I was working on it, but it was definitely inspired by the NatGeo photo however. "

"One of my favorites"
I am looking at the autumn wallpapers and deciding which to use. I think they are your best overall collections. I use this one every year and have since it came out. Several others are my favorites as well.

Heliocentric
"Getting more comfortable with Vue 9.5's new cloud controls. They really do allow you to place clouds wherever you like. Very powerful! The previous versions had one character standing on the rocks overlooking the valley, but a number of folks seemed to see two. In the end I thought it would be a good idea to actually have two people together. In this case they are the sorcerer and "assassin" that I used for my "Arcana" scene. So does this scene happen before or after the events in "Arcana"? You tell me..."

"Impressive"
I just realized that the (single-screen) version 3 of Heliocentric is absolutely stunning. Wow.



Love that contrast with the night sky in the corner that gets cropped out when it spans 2 monitors. Simply breathtaking!

We Don't Like Zombies
"
The Bliss family is big into PopCap games and no game gets more play than "Plants vs Zombies". My kids (especially Jason) love it so much that I thought it would be a good way to show them "what Daddy does for a living".

They watched me model the plants, position, shade and render them. Of course they wanted me to add more and more different plants, but I think I we will save those for future scenes.

Since this isn't a 100% Ryan Bliss original, I have decided to post a (lower res) free version here. DB Members can find all of the available resolutions here. I hope the folks over at PopCap enjoy my homage. The title is a line from the "Zombies on your Lawn" theme song. Thanks for all the fun!"

"Great. Now I'm hooked on a new game! ;-)"
I agree with Robert, I'd love a mushroom garden! And Chomper. I love Chomper! Adorable render, fits well with the game, I think... and the ages of the junior artists ;-)

The Fisherman
"This project went through many different twists and turns over the course of Nov/Dec 2010. Perhaps I will post those renders in the Pickle Jar in the weeks ahead. I'd hoped that it would be my last project of 2010, but the render went long and it is my first offering of 2011. "

"Oops: 1920x1080"
I like this one; I've been a member for awhile but hadn't seen this before. There seems to be a problem with the source file for the single screen 1920x1080 image: I've tried from different browsers, and it always downloads as 1920x960...
