Digging deeper into Gaea here to learn more about using different starting shapes to make (hopefully) interesting landforms. Just scratching the surface here so I'm pretty excited about the possibilities. 'd added a little traveller for scale but decided at the last minute to remove him. Maybe I'll put it in the Pickle Jar later. I hope you enjoy it!

This is wonderful! Reminds me of the toxic hot springs I've seen with the brilliant colors.

Love this! It’s one of your works that I can actually feel myself IN that place. Hypnotic colors, the fade out on the distant plant is perfect. Spectacular.

"Opalescent Dream"
I really love the contrast of the pastel colors in the water with the earthy reds of the land.

What a neat idea... very otherworldly. I really like how the color suggests heavy iron traces in the rock, and copper in the water.

"Very nice!"
Immediately captivated by the colours! As an ancient MacBook Air user I am hoping the 1366x768 render can be added sometime please.

Very interesting, and a color palette that's easy on the eyes.

1366x768 seems to be missing from the list.

Love this! Definitely intrigued in the Pickle Jar version with the traveler too. <3

Love this one! Maybe a night version?

"simple and beautiful"
I really love this one !

"Love This"
Awesome Planetscape, so realistic and very beautiful. Great Job

Sometimes the complexity is in the simplicity. The solid surface looks intriguing. Can you apply all sorts of textures to this with Gaea, such as say tree rings? I say this, as the current texture looks a little like fossilised wood.

Great, as usual.

I really like this one, I must admit to favouring your planetscapes

If this is what you can produce when you say you are learning how to use Gaea I look forward to seeing what you do when you are further along the learning path.

"Wanted more"
I really wanted to like this one more as your other planetscapes are amazing but with this one I just couldn't get as excited about. It seems a bit to plain to me. Oh it's still nice, I just wanted to like it more than I do.

"Texture issue?"
The lighting and geometry is really nice in this, but the textures (mostly in the land features) seem oddly low resolution, particularly in the foreground. I took a look at a few different size and shape renders and it's consistently pixelated and low-res... is this a software limitation, maybe?

"Dual-screen colour palette problem"
One small oddity: the colour palette of the dual-screen render seems oversaturated. The blues in particular are too strong, and overall the image looks a bit 'sour' because of this. Yet the triple-screen render is fine, and matches the palette of the main single-screen render. The dual-screen version isn't 'awful', but it's less good than the other versions because of this issue. Any comment, @Ryan?

I really love this one. It's beautiful, and the iridescent water is both unusual and very effective. The planet in the sky also manages to complement the ground very effectively in terms of its colour palette.

The one thing that's possibly missing is a sense of scale, so I'd very much like to see the promised Pickle Jar variant with a traveller included.

Nevertheless, 10/10 for this one.

Love this! My new lockscreen background.

Mon September 9, 2019 at 10:35 am

This is the kind of picture which I am on DB for. Marvellous.

Mon September 9, 2019 at 10:27 am

Fabulous! A smash hit! Of course, the concept reminds me of "Serenade" which is one of my all time favorite DB images. I am so pleased that you did this!

Love this one....instantly became my Desktop!

Mon September 9, 2019 at 9:35 am

This is a really eye-grabbing and different landscape, with more color and detail the longer I look. Lovely!
