Believe it or not this is actually the same model from The Oddball but evolved quite a bit. I thought it would be interesting to see if I could build walkways or other architecture using Plant Factory. This first iteration is a bit on the fanciful side (I couldn’t decide if this was a night scene or an abstract) but I could see some interesting future applications.
I love the fun of both versions, looks so cool and fun to be among these brilliant Orbs, great Render my Friend.
Reminds me of a carnival at night. Love it!
As a photographer in my alter ego, I can appreciate the differences between the day and night versions. They appeal to our personal preferences. For me the day version gives a sense of security and comfort as well as a connection to a new vision. The night scene brings out an appreciation of an otherwise dark walkway and it’s brightly lit enticement to go just a little bit further and discover a new perspective. Perhaps a little transparency in the water?
An awesome image Ryan!

I always like night images and this is no exception. I do wonder (if it is possible) what the effect on the picture would be if all the orbs were blue/dark blue/purple or a similar color scheme.
I like it (no surprise for me at DB), but not sure how to articulate that, so: 10 for the awesome colors, 9 for the design, and 8 for sensory overload. 9 overall.
The color palette is lovely. Those yellows and oranges and reds combine to make an excellent piece.
Such a great concept. Visually stunning and enchanting.
Honestly, the 3D version you posted on FaceBook made this render even more incredible. I really love the look of a path winding through the lights. It reminds of a world that belongs in the Myst game series.
Can’t wait for the multimonitor!
Not sure how to describe this one. It’s definitely different and unique. I love the colors you used in this one, and the lighting in it and along the path are really good.

Just… wow. Great reflections, the lighting on the path is phenomenal. You’ve outdone yourself here, Ryan.
Very clever, creative, evocative piece!
Google âRiver of Lights Albuquerque â for some images that are kinda ârealistic analogsâ of this one.
Honestly, I’m less drawn to your work when it’s too realistic. I love alien landscapes, and I’d love to see you take another pass at some of your more surreal work using human shapes.
I like this a lot. I wonder if there’s a way to do a daylight scene with it.
Reminds me of the island of Curacao – at night. Nice.
Reminds me of the annual lumiere ‘GLOW’ held at our RHS gardens over Christmas & New Year.
I absolutely love this one! It has a dreamlike, fantasy feel to me.
While a tad busy for a wall (unless you’re an anti-clutter, icon-averse desktop-minimalist/puritan like me, heh), but WOW what a scene! I really like it! Glowy lights for the win!
Hope you do a daytime version too! Maybe with some koi? <3
