My first render using Apophysis since 2017. Back then I created piece called “Cynosure” after following a tutorial on creating fractal flowers (with quite a bit of deviation). I’d meant to do a few more but got sidetracked for whatever reason. I started from the same basic steps for this one but went for a more traditional flower look. I’m still deciding if I like the “sparkles” or not. What do you think? Since both Shadowfax and Bucephalus are busy rendering I developed this one on Ian’s gaming computer while he was at school.
Pickle Jar Variations what's this?

"Newish member"
Ryan, I was a member years ago and for whatever stupid reason, let my membership laps. I have been following you on both Facebook and Instagram since before that and have always loved your work. I finally made the time today and re-subscribed! Keeps up the awesome and awe inspiring artwork!

"Growing on me...."
At first I disagreed with the switch of 1 and 3, but the more I look at 3 the more I like it. It's really striking on my phone screen. I don't suppose some color variations would be possible (purple, blue, etc.)? Pretty please?

"That's what I need in my Garden!"
... A plant that shows a warm glow on a winter's night - but will the stars in the leaves come out on a cloudy night?

Let's see how it looks in my Winter Wallpaper collection.

"Pickle Jar Swap"
I made an executive decision and will be featuring Shadowbloom 3 going forward. 1 and 2 will be available in the Pickle Jar.

"yes, I DL'd them, but ..."
Hi. So far, I like the original best, but this is pending the pickle jar review (which includes setting the pix as DeskTop bg) ... We'll see ...

I like the sparkles, they really set it off. I think the whole thing is lovely.

Thank you, Ryan, for the lovely picklejar renders!

"Simply Beautiful"
Love these, simple but so much beauty, some of fav's Thank You Ryan

Mon February 11, 2019 at 8:45 pm

I always seem to like the simple flower ones you create. They are simple but there is so much depth to them. Great for backgrounds.

Mon February 11, 2019 at 12:44 pm

On the desktop - clean, simple, love it!

"Simply Amazing"
One of your best yet, it has a simple elegance to it.

"10/10 would become member again"
I already wrote you a PS in an e-mail, replying to your automated new pic e-mail, but I'll say it again here:

Your best, by far ... I even like it better than Fluorescence ...

Mon February 11, 2019 at 1:25 am

This is the best flower I've seen from you, Ryan! Just wonderful!

"mobile love"
This it's absolutely lovely as my mobile wallpaper

"Nightly Beauty "
I love so much this wallpaper. I'm proud to be a Patreon of Digital Blasphemy.

Sun February 10, 2019 at 6:36 pm

I want to say that I really like this picture and is my current desktop. Think you could do something related to the protomocule from The Expanse?

"Dark Beauty"
Well done, Ryan. The petal details and shadows colors are subdued yet vividly highlighted with the crimson center and light polyps. A dark beauty.

Sun February 10, 2019 at 2:17 pm

"Don't Stop Rendeeeering! Steetlight people"
This one definitely landed on my list of top DB renders of all time. The sparkles are a nice touch but we need another version without sparkles to help you decide.

"Shadowbloom Sparkles"
I like the sparkles. With the black background it looks a bit like it's a natural occurrence in space.

Sun February 10, 2019 at 9:53 am

I love this! Many thanks! Oskar

Sun February 10, 2019 at 9:39 am

Wow. The best wallpaper in a while. Love it.

Sun February 10, 2019 at 9:15 am

"Really amazing"
You are on a roll, Ryan!

Sun February 10, 2019 at 7:16 am

Right up there with your best florals ever!

Sun February 10, 2019 at 5:22 am

"Just stunning..."
Absolutely love it.

Thanks for the multi-screens too.

Sun February 10, 2019 at 5:06 am

"Dark Contrast"
Great render, clean and neat. I like the dark vs light suggestion the simplicity of it is pleasing vs something that's just too busy to focus on.

Sun February 10, 2019 at 3:32 am

"One of my favorites"
This is more abstract than I usually like, but I LOVE it. Delicate. Flower. Blue. Soothing, just striking.

Sun February 10, 2019 at 0:09 am

very beautiful. And thanks for the 'built-in' Multi-Screen renders!! :-)

Sat February 9, 2019 at 11:59 pm

"I need that 5760x1200"
Call me too particular, but I always use your 5760x1200 triple screen images.

Any chance you'll add that soon?

Sat February 9, 2019 at 11:26 pm

More, please (color variants)

breath taking!

"Beautiful Rose"
I really love this rose. Beautiful colors. I also love how it almost see through, but not quite.

Sat February 9, 2019 at 8:55 pm

"Black rose = WIN"
I wish black roses really existed in nature...but, this is the next best thing. Excellent!

I also liked "Electric Dahlia" and "Nightshade," btw, but this? Third time's the charm.

Sat February 9, 2019 at 8:35 pm

I dig the flower and the sparkles, but since you're not sure about them, maybe if they had a they were stars forming the Shadowbloom constellation? Not sure how much work that would be to place the sparkles in places to do that, but it could be cool.
