When I posted Snowtop a little while back I mentioned that it was an experiment learning Gaea. Quite a few folks left comments here and on social media indicating that I should post more Gaea experiments when I had them. I have a couple such projects in the works and this is the first. “Chione” (named for the Greek goddess of snow) continues my study of Gaea’s snow cover node (which I also used in Snowtop). I hope you enjoy it!

    The snow looks wonderful but there’s something… off about the rock textures and the snowline blending. It looks more like there’s been a jello spill on a white surface.

    I had previously been a member for many years, but my membership lapsed last year. I thought “I wonder what Ryan is up to these days?” Saw this picture and immediately renewed! Awesome work as always ๐Ÿ™‚

    This one’s fabulous. You’ve done a lot of gorgeous snow scenes in the past, but I don’t think I’ve ever seen you combine it with a planet scape before. I love it!

    Simply jaw dropping. I live in country like this and I’m impressed.

    Peaceful frozen landscape, simply beautiful

  6. BobC [lifer]

    I also love the simplicity and subtle colors of this apparently lifeless landscape. Keep ’em coming!

    The explorer and space scifi fan in me enjoys your plantescapes !. The widescreen versions evoke a sense of scale and I think the proportions/distances of the planets/moons is spot on.

    For those of the warm-climate persuasion, the snow could also be sand. The Ennedi region of the Sahara features large rock outcrops poking out of the sand like this. I love pictures of that area, and until I read that this was snow I honestly thought I was looking at a desert scene. It’s a beautiful dawn no matter which way one sees it. >({|:-)

    Great render – though I will be saving it for my wallpaper rotation when its a bit cooler outside!

  10. Jason Pond [liferplus]

    Another masterful render. I favor all of your works (like this) which offer a feeling of serenity. I think you figured Gaea out!

    Ryan, this is a brilliant image. The sky/moons, the mountains, and the snow are each individually interesting, and together they are extraordinary. Thank you!

  12. Mark [liferplus]

    Ryan, this one is wonderful. Well done!

    I really like the simplicity and minimal nature of this render, Ryan. The colours are also really pleasing!
