Ryan's TipJar

Can you spot the plants in this render? This scene was basically a test to see if I could create rock formations using The Plant Factory. The "plants" use displacement (to create the ridges) and were populated using Vue's Ecosystems. Let me know what you think!

"Good, but not my style"
Makes a great desktop background by nature of the color and the depth, but it's not really my preferred style.

"Interesting"
At first blush — and from about five feet — it looked like a watercolor painting. Love the metamorphic jazz you've got goin' here.

"Kinda trippy"
This is a cool image. My only criticism is that the soft fluid ripples on some of the columns don't look believable. It's like the texture between the outer lines of the column stops abruptly at those lines, rather than continuing to wrap around the shape. I don't know if I'm explaining myself well. The prominent column in the front left is the primary offender.

"Venue Testing "
I like the concept but there are bits that look unfinished. Parts have great detail in contrast to this which leaves me on the fence about the overall appeal. I love this type of scene though...

"Can you spot the plants in this render?" Tsk, tsk Ryan -- you really shouldn't be encouraging the "pixel spotters" amongst your fan base. As horribly OCD as I can be, I don't need any extra urging in this direction.

All kidding aside, it's a very nice piece. Just as the previous member commented, I too would love to explore this place. Well done, and again, thank you.

"great work "
Technically nothing wrong at all with this image. It does seem a bit lifeless; not sure if some bioluminesense would fix that or maybe a plant. this is all just opinion though. This is seriously good stuff.
