So is it really a pointless exercise to gild a rose, if there was no rose to begin with?

    Sorry about that. After looking at these resolution numbers for so many years I sometimes forget to look as closely as I should. I haven’t heard of that resolution before. Is it a smartphone or tablet? Does it allow you to scale/crop larger images to fit?

  4. Ryan

    They are both available at 1440 x 900 in the Pickle Jar!

  5. J

    If I could see one of these two pickle jar variants at 1480×800, I would be a happy woman.

    Is it bad that this looks like dry-type earwax under a microscpe to me?

  7. Kerry

    I have to agree with Foz. The first thought that came to mind was “cereal flakes”.

  8. Deanna

    Oh yes, now THIS looks like gold. I like! I think you nailed the color and I’m loving the lacey edges.

  9. Ryan

    This has been an interesting (and sometimes frustrating) project to work on. Gold is a tough substance to render!Either way, I am enjoying learning the fundamentals of Lightwave’s Instancing tools. I can see so many cool applications…

    Beautiful, and the featured version is definitely my favorite. Sadly I think this will end up being a bit busy on the edges to end up on my desktop though.

  11. Foz

    Hmmm I’m afraid this reminds me more of a brown bran breakfast cereal – branflakes specifically.

    The brighter variant one looks more like gold.

  12. Joe

    I really like it… except for the grain. Every time I see another one of your renders, I get excited, then almost right away, I get disappointed as usually only about 10% of the render is actually clear. There’s none of your top 10 renders that have been obliterated with grain like this one, and maybe some people like it, but for me it’s just a disappointment.

    Hybrid 2002 is one of my all-time favorites, so I was delighted to see these remakes. I like all the renders you’ve done so far, even the first (it’s grown on me), and I love the second’s splendid colors. But the two gilded renders are fantastic, Ryan, particularly the last. My only quibble is that the DOF is a little shallow. The upper left corner is too blurry and doesn’t add to the overall effect, IMHO. Can’t wait for the final!

    it looks as if you took Gold Leaf and created roses from it, then took the picture. Absolutely Stunning work Ryan.

  15. Drew

    Texture looks off to me, more like a waffle cone or a chip than the smooth velvet of a rose petal. The purple version in the pickle jar looks more true to an actual rose.

  16. Maria B

    I love shiny things!

  17. betsey

    don’t ask me to pick….love ’em all….

  18. Misty

    Looks like someone took the time to gold fold each petal. Fantastic version in my opinion. You always do amazing work.

    I didn’t realize Hybrid Frost was ‘only’ a Pickle Jar image. It’s easily one of my favorite things you’ve done.
