"The view..."
Nicely developed, Ryan; the canine's a great addition. This a view I'd love to have.

""Horizons" is the end-result of my learning some new space rendering techniques during the summer of 2014. I used my Class M planet from Skyward, my gas giant from "Cronus", and my galaxy from "Island in the Void" for the sky and modeled the foreground in Vue 2014.5. The title is from a comment left by member "Jenna" on the WIP version, where she said: I really like the "from our current horizon to our eventual horizon" feel. "

Island in the Void
"I started playing around with this model on Asfaloth while waiting for "Cronus Rising" to render on Bucephalus. My goal was to create a believable galaxy in Lightwave using the new instancing tools (and no Hypervoxels). This one rendered in around 90 minutes at 4800 x 3000 with 24 anti-aliasing passes. That certainly beats the 24 hours that a similar Hypervoxel render would take. I'm still learning all the tricks to the new instancing system so this is just the beginning. Let me know what you think! PS: The title refers back to this piece from 2001."

Ryan, I really-ultra-super-supremely believe the "Overseer" version merits its own space in the Main Gallery! In my eye it's the closest you've come yet to actually capturing the feel of an older favorite while, as you like to say, "amping it up to 11". It's even got a certain symbolic value; the fact that the Overseer is looking out on a galaxy instead of a planet could just as well serve as a metaphor for how far you've come with what you've been doing here since 1997.

For me, v2 looks better by itself, but v1 makes the most spectacular wallpaper. Pick the one you like best; I love them both!

Cronus Rising
"After all that tinkering with Vue's planetary rendering mode, I thought I should bring it all together was a nice planetscape.

The planets are a combination of two different Vue renders (it only lets you render one planet at a time) and the foreground was also rendered using Vue 2014.

You might detect the influence of my recent trip to Washington state.

Here's the original from 1998 if you are curious as to how they match up! I hope you like the update!!"

"Cronus Rising"
Who wouldn't want to live here just for the spectacular view? Those clouds could be signalling a future storm, so I'd best get indoors!

"This continues my experiments with Vue d'Esprit's "Planetary" mode. Basically you can move the camera high enough that you are looking down at the entire planet that you were working on. The planet in "Skyward" was made in this manner, but I wanted to see if I could use it to create a gas giant type world.

This render combines two my gas giant with a smaller terrestrial type satellite. Both were rendered using Vue d'Esprit 11.5 "

I love the simplicity of this one, it's very reminiscent of your older work. The planet's beautiful too, like it's been pastel painted.

"I've always wanted to do a wallpaper depicting what you might see laying on your back and looking up through the trees at the wonderous night sky. After creating this planet in Vue d'Esprit (my first such attempt) it seemed like the time was right. I hope you enjoy it! This is a bit of a first draft so don't be surprised if I post an update or two in the days ahead..."

I did have a problem with the reddish branches that seemed to take over the picture. I like this newer version much better with the branches that are still viewable but doing take away from the centerpiece of the planet.

Shattered Sky
"I thought it would be interesting to render a view of "Aftermath" from the ground. The "incoming" are an alpha plane I rendered using the same Lightwave setup that I put together for "Starfall" but with a different camera position.
Lots of possibilities for alpha planes in Vue..."

"If you hadn't noticed I have been on something of an update kick early in 2014. I didn't really have it in me to show what caused all of the debris in the original "Aftermath" from 1999. When I started playing around with Lightwave's Fracture tool I knew the moment had arrived to complete the scene.

I've posted some "ind- devlopement" pics on my Instagram account if anyone is interested! "

This and the multi-screens look awesome. I cannot wait for the ground view of this one. Keep up the great work Ryan and may you have an awesome rest of the week.
