Thanks for renewing James. I think this one is a good candidate for revision. The balloon needs some major improvement.

"Valley" may've been the first Dig Blas image I stumbled over. I stopped whatever I was doing to stare. And stare and stare... Can't put my finger on what it is, but this one has _something_ that made me forget the way home that day.

"Canada 2017"
In 2017, Canada will celebrate its sesquicentennial. This image seems like it could be very Canadian, maybe with a bit of a colour shift to make it a bit more cheery instead of the grey, Zen sort of colouration.



This image was my wallpaper for a long time!

Extremely relaxing work of art. Slightly abstract due to its lack of details but enough to convey a sense of nature and sunlight.



Reposting because I screwed up the rating earlier.

"Canopy as Desktop Background"
I am disappointed to find many of the images are cut off when I use them as my desk top background. This one is cut off at the bottom just above the waterline and so it is not what I hoped for once I put it onto my desktop.

You almost sound condescending... as if to say "I can do that too!" I don't doubt you can, but then highly doubt you can do anything near what Ryan is capable of.

Yeah, actually this one was made before I moved up to a 17 inch monitor. My first monitor was 14 incher which only went as high as 800 x 600.



There might be one or two others that are this size but incorrectly marked. Sorry for the confusion!

Thanks! This was done in Lightwave. It is a combination of a 2D textured background, volumetric particles (Hypervoxels), a volumetric light (the central star) and polygon geometry (the planets).

Don't know if you have a night version of this, but if you don't, i was thinking it would look good if the blue spheres and spears were actually the light sources???

I have never seen your early versions of art...I decided to look at it this morning.....you made this a while back and thru the years your art has greatly improved and I would love to see a new version of it similar to the movie "Twister" with debris flying around...you know spring is around the corner and it is a tornado season.

Let's see a new version of "Whirlwind." Love tornados, I'm sure you can do a killer one now. Doom and destruction, houses and Dorothy flying around, the whole nine yards. Or maybe something subtle.

I know this one program, it called "World Builder". I can't tell exactly what is the version of it used by Ryan to create this one image, but i like a result) The waves are not the water object here, it's a ground)) Funny, but it is, cause this app cannot create REAL waves)

But it's OK, there was no any other way to do it in 2000, as i think.

The Triscreen picture is the best! It's so beatutiful - the lone tree on the plane, surrounded by the clouds. A higher camera view would be nice. It's one of my favorite! A 16:9 single screen version with this tree in the distance would also be nice.

This image reminds me off the Protoss Carriers in the original StarCraft franchise. Blizzard's rendering of the ships looked just like this! Love it!



I also like the perspective of the ships that you used to emphasize the magnitude and size of the ships.

I can easily understand, why Ryan don't want to render this image in larger size. The quality is bad, but Ryan goes through it, i can't really understand HOW, but he does that! My congratulations to Ryan!
