Learning to use my own geometry in "The Plant Factory" and how to texture gemstones in Lightwave. I hope it's not too chaotic to use as a wallpaper!

The more I look at this one, the more I like it. However, with all the serpentine forms, I keep looking (and hoping) for a Chinese dragon or two to pop its head out from under a jewel cluster.

"Re Dreams of Avarice"
This may be one of the most detail-dense renderings I've ever seen. It's weird, it's fascinating, it's incredibly intricate, and it's definitely a keeper. And with a little bit of herb, it gets even MORE interesting.

Very nice piece of work!

"Absorbing imagery"
I really liked this. In fact it's one of my favourite DB renders for some time. Now adorning my Thunderbolt display and my MacBook Pro. I love the textures, metallic sheen and holographic highlights. Great work.

"Great Detail"
I really like the (see title above!) I feel that M.C. Escher and "Where's Waldo" conspired to influence you on this one. I think it is one of your best.

I like this a lot, and grabbed the 2xUHD version. Sadly the vast majority of it looks really blurry. Could there be a version without the depth of field, or at least where there is something in focus in all areas of the image?

As someone who doesn't use desktop icons (or toolbars or anything like that, for that matter), I find this wallpaper to be really cool! I just keep seeing new things in it. :)

"cool pic"
I agree with the others, I love all the fine detail on the blown-up version but desktop icons just don't have enough contrast with it to show clearly.

When I first saw the small version I didn't like it, but when I put it on the big screen more detail came through and I changed my mind to a certain degree.

I would like to see a touch more colour in it - there is a bit too much silver/grey

"Beauty in Chaos"
This has just enough chaos to catch your (or anyone who happens to be walking by) attention before quickly noticing the beauty within it. Of course I'm curious to see what, if any become available, a pickle jar variation will look like. Either way, I have found my new wallpaper.

This is definitely in my top 5 of [all of] your works. It has just the right amount of metal, color, beauty, and danger. So much awesome. ;)

I love this one; going to make it my default background. My only quibble is that I would have preferred the jewels to be another color -- I don't like red with silver, would rather have blue or purple. I do like the prismatic thingies.

"neat but..."
Super intense, cool to look at it, but I don't think I can use it as a desktop background, and yes very hard to find icons

"Dragon Vine"
We have found the first clue to the dragons' wealth of old. A plant bred to fulfill their greatest desires. A vine that produces gemstones as flowers, but also grows into a thick bramble covered in razor sharp scales of precious metals to defend their great value from the pathetic little humans. Ryan, I urge you to keep looking for other species of this truly amazing plant.

"Amazing image..."
Can't find my icons now !!!

Mon January 9, 2017 at 9:33 am

I recommend you download one of the higher resolution versions and zoom in on an interesting spot. That's what I did on my phone.

"busy for my phone"
interesting to look at, but when i downloaded it as wallpaper, i can't see my icons.

"The BORG and Kudzu went on a date..."
This looks awesome, can't wait for the dual screen to come out. This also answered the age old question, what happens when the BORG assimilate a plant species.

"Organic/inorganic complexity"
This is usually the kind of design I dislike. It reminds me a little of Gaudi's designs for the Sagrada Familia, which I don't like much. But this has redeeming features! ;-) it has gems and metallic textures and is not creepy in the same way. I certainly don't think it is too chaotic for a desktop, it is not confusing, just complex. Perfect for the times when one wants to distract the eyes whilst using the brain for another task!

This is so cool, it's like a close up of some alien planet's soil and all you see is Gem's growing, where is this planet, I just want to pick a few, not much I promise,,,,
