Attempting to create "willowy" trees using The Plant Factory.   As the idea progressed I thought it would be more interesting to make blooming ones.
   Dedicated to my lovely wife Jessica on Mother's Day 2017!  Purple is her favorite color :-)
Painted Sky
I've been chasing that "lit from below" look with my clouds for some time now.   The best way to achieve it with Vue seems to be using the "spherical" render mode where your world becomes a sphere (instead of an infinite flat plane).  It makes for some incredible lighting options, but unfortunately everything seems to take 5 times as long to render.   For this scene I've rendered the sky as a background first (as I did with "Skygate") and then worked on the foreground as I would in the normal "flat" Vue scene. It was a lot easier to do preview renders this way :-)

More Resolutions Available In My Gallery

Skygate (Spring)
Experimenting with rendering the background and foreground separately in Vue d'Esprit.   Resolutions up to 6K available in my gallery.
Dome of the Blue Seeress (Night)
After finishing the day version multiscreen I hoped to transition immediately to creating the night version that I had planned.   Unfortunately my Vue d'Esprit software had other ideas.   As has happened quite a few times before, I wasn't able to re-open my scene file to continue working on the project.  After much swearing and gnashing of teeth, I managed to open an older version of the scene (without the vines) and rebuild things to where I could progress with my nocturnal version.

 Unfortunately after rendering the single-screen version here Vue crashed and, once again, I wasn't able to reopen my work.   There are certainly a thing or two that I would like to tweak with this render but unfortunately that won't be possible unless I spend another whole day rebuilding it (yet again).   That also means the multiscreen version will be delayed.

Fortunately I think the render I do have looks nice enough to share.   Let me know what you think!

Dome of the Blue Seeress
Re-imagining one of my favorite scenes from 2002.   I had always meant to re-render the original for widescreen monitors but I decided instead to re-do the scene in Vue.

Your art is amazing. I have enjoyed seeing all the new posts throughout the years. I don't remember how old I was when my Mom showed me your site and inspired both of us to do digital art, but I'm thinking it was over 7 years ago! Time flies!

Originally found you through my Mom (Valshaena), intend to get a lifetime sub to your website once I'm able.
You, sir, are a highly-skilled person and an inspiration.

Hey Ryan,
You know I NEVER do tags, but to this one I do a single one time exception. Its to beautiful not to
Tag a quality deviant, You’re it! Quality doesn't mean that you have a lot of followers, or a lot of messages. It means that you’re nice to other people, and you deserve to be happy. If you get this message, someone is telling you that they love you as you are, and they don’t care how much followers you have. Send this to all deviants who deserve it (Or as many or few as you want). If you break the chain, nothing will happen. But it’s just good to let someone know that you love them!HeartHugs Anne
