Sticking with the planetscape theme here. I wanted to see if I could use Oculus Medium to create icebergs here. The planets are a mix of Vue rendered “planetary landscapes” (spherical terrains) and one that I created in Lightwave.

    I love it!! Awesome! You know they say that having a fish tank lowers your blood pressure, and it’s a fact. But for me this is my fish tank!

    I love the ice planet style wallpapers!

  3. Ryan

    Thank you! It’s actually a new planet model I designed (using Lightwave and a program called “Wilbur”) but I didn’t really think it detailed enough to be the main subject of a scene. It worked nicely here though and certain evokes “Crucible” for folks who remember that far back :-)Thanks for the comment!!

    That may seem like an interesting Review Title, but I have to say that I love when some of your former works creep into your newer works. Case in point: the Crucible planet making an appearance here. It’s like a little gift from the past.

    Unfortunately for my triple-screen use, the curve distortion in the multiscreen views is a dealbreaker for me using this as a background. I gave it a couple days but it just ruins the illusion of the setting for me.

  6. ZUL [liferplus]

    I like the light source shining on the icebergs. They edges look very realistic.

  7. Phineas [basicmember]

    It looks all the more cold because of the partially molten moon in the sky. I could almost wish it was fully molten – extra contrast.

  8. Timhogs [liferplus]

    I’d say the iceberg experiment was a success. And the moons are beautiful (I noticed on the duals and triples, though, that they aren’t exactly round – was that intentional?)

    Having this up on my dual work monitors and staring at it for hours now I’m realizing this is actually a masterpiece. I originally loved it at first sight now it’s quickly becoming a favorite it’s just so crispy man.

    Have you tried the version for the Samsung Galaxy?

  11. Gibbylinks [basicmember]

    Once again brilliant Ryan, but why no Android HD anymore?

  12. Keith-E [nonmonthly]

    I like this one enough to use it across multiple monitors. As usual, looking forward to the tri-screen. My first thought was how real the ice looked, harking back to Circumpolar. รขย™ยฅ

  13. Darren [basicmember]

    Amazing image. It genuinely looks cold. The ice is superb, I think Oculus Medium worked out nicely.

  14. Jenanne [liferplus]

    Wonderful, Ryan! I love this!

  15. Josh [liferplus]

    This is going up there with one of my all time favorites, Niflheim.

  16. Ozaawaagosh [basicmember]

    Love This One, great colours, awesome realism and great theme, in agreement with the comment that Tyler made. Great render Ryan.

  17. BigD [basicmember]

    I too like the more minimalist look to wallpapers and think this one is spot on. The colors and layout are great!

  18. Tyler [lifer]

    Love the satellite planets right off the bat. Brilliant integration of what looks to be Crucible ( and Skyward ( Not sure if that was by design or not but it works.

  19. vtowens [lifer]

    Love this one, clean lines, great coloring, calming effect. Great work!!

  20. Nathan Zachary [lifer]

    That one is lovely, too! My first thought was of Boreal:

    Absolutely love that one, and use it quite often. ๐Ÿ™‚

  21. Jeff Cook [basicmember]

    Those icebergs are spectacular!

  22. num3ers [basicmember]

    Gave this a 1 by mistake…..9 IMO all day long.

  23. David M [lifer]

    Love, love, love your planetscapes. My only critique here is that often your icebergs seem to have very flat surfaces when they hit the waterline: the lines are so very straight where the ice meets the water, no sense of unevenness. But otherwise, the ice looks so dang real and I love how your planetscapes inspire wonder and awe and the imagination.

    Morning Ryan… someone else mentioned this and I have to agree. I really like to blue and white tones to this drawing. I have finally replaced the magic mushrooms on my desktop.

  25. John Kinane [basicmember]

    please? ๐Ÿ˜‰

  26. Littlemom [liferplus]

    This is a nice one Ryan. I love the blue and white tones to this. Great Job!!!

  27. Ryan

    You might be right. I walk by an old print of “Majesty” in my house just about every day and this piece is sort of a homage to that (note the earthlike planet).

  28. Nathan Zachary [lifer]

    I like the more minimalistic planetscapes like this one. To me, though, it would be better with just the single large planet in the background. The others seem superimposed and out-of-place.

  29. ChrisW [basicmember]

    Very nice. It does remind me of a couple of other images you’ve done, such as “Arctica” and “Boreal”, with a touch of “Crucible” as well. Overall, very impressive — and just the thing to greet summer with!

  30. Rodewaryer [basicmember]

    Firstly, you can feel it, as anyone that’s been somewhere cold. It sparks the awe sense at the scope of it all and yet leaves one with a bit of hopelessness at there being no where to….go. Not entirely different that finding yourself home only to find debris….
