Ryan's TipJar

Glad to finally be able to post this one! The Vue scene took so long to render that I feared that Shadowfax had hung more than once. It actually did crash one time and I had to restart the whole thing. Regardless, I persisted and I'm happy to be able to share it with you. I used Lightwave 2018's new texturing model for the background planet. Hopefully it was worth the wait. The scene will need a major rework if I am going to be able to produce multiscreen versions however. The whole thing is set up for 360 rendering but we shall see.

Simple isn't a bad thing. There are times I go back in the library when I'm in the mood for simple. Thanks you!

Agree with so many others that this has such a classic feel. Your early planetscapes were what convinced me to become a member, and images like this are why I will always remain one. Well done!!

"Erebus is a GREAT render!"
Erebus is a GREAT render, Ryan! You excel yourself - and, admittedly, the bar is already set pretty high! Mid you, you did it!

"old school vibe"

"Wishful Thinking"
Always have relished the idea of a planetrise like this, love it.

Ryan we need the multi on this ASAP. This is absolutely the reason I'm a lifetime member. The concept and execution are top notch well done sir.

It's a wonderful scene. Shame it won't be done for multi-screen..

Planet scapes are my favorite. I love this one! I first saw it on my phone and just audibly uttered, "Wow!" Great job!

"Sea and Sky"
Together in one beautiful, haunting scene. This is terrific, Ryan.

I most definitely love the planetscapes, and, for mine, this one ranks as one of the better ones. The dark greys of the entire scene just make the colours stand out.

"I'm Ecstatic"
This harks back to some of your early images (which I like so much) but done with pizazz, using your current level of skill. Bravo!

Definitely one of your best planetscapes yet. Your sci-fi-ish rendering are always my favorites, and I like that this one has a darker, almost foreboding atmosphere to it. A new feel for a planetscape scene, and I like it!

I've missed your Planetscapes... always some of my favorites! This is a great one, love the colors - feels almost ominous.

Sun March 4, 2018 at 10:36 am

Wow!!! This is simply amazing Ryan!!! Well worth the wait!!! Can we possibly get a day time version as well?

"over 9(000)"
Pretty nice dark touch, Planets, Shore - man, nothing more to say.

Peace out

"When can I go?"
This is a really stunning scene - I completely love the mist. Only gripe, maybe it's my screen brightness but I can barely see the islands (the most unique and exciting part of this scene) because they are so dark against the brightness of the waves. Still a beautiful world, scored it 9. I hope you do tweak it for multiscreen because it really deserves multiscreen glory.

As usual, really looking forward to the tri-screen.

Lurve the restrained use of color to make the point.

"Simply Beautiful"
Simply Beautiful World, love the colours and how so realistic it appers, this is one of my favorite Planet-Scape, Great Job Ryan

"On My Way"
What's the name of the travel agent to this beautiful world?

Sat March 3, 2018 at 7:12 pm

"Background. Otherwise not bad."
I think anything, except another planet with rings in the background, would have been better.

Sat March 3, 2018 at 6:42 pm

I can see why this would take so long. I can't wait to see the daytime render.
