Experimenting with “Scherk” Minimal Surfaces here. I know it’s a simplistic looking render, but it makes a nice counterpoint to my last abstract 🙂

I love this print. I would love it even more if it was done in purple! Or rainbow!
I love them all, would it be possible for triple screen for all the pickles?
I love this one, Ryan. It reminds me strongly of some old DB favourites, “Singularity” and “Something Blue”. That crisp, unbusy quality is definitely a good thing and something I wouldn’t mind seeing in your future work!
An exercise in clarity and focus, no pun intended but it is very cool!
Gotta say, I’m more partial to the original blue, the green, the red, and especially the black. The purple and yellow I could take or leave. I also love the swirl design; for some reason, it makes me think of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (the Tim Burton version). Keep up the good work!
I doubt that’s an art term but it looks really great on my monitor. Speaking of which I have one small request, would you please make a 3440×1440 version of the red? Maybe I’m blind but couldn’t see it. I want all of the colors!
I’ve always liked blues, but thave to admit I loke the purple and red as well.
If I had to pick just one it would have to be black right now but the purple you just added is 1/2 a point lower. I agree with Len a silver would give a brushed stainless look.
Ryan, don’t sell yourself short on minimalism. It’s a nice change to some of the busier renders, and may likely appeal to some folks who haven’t yet seen your work.
All pop (except maybe the yellow). If I had to pick, green or purple would win. I can’t help thinking that if you tried silver, you might get a nice “brushed nickel” quality. Excellent work as usual!
My favorites of the new colors are the green and the purple–but they are all wonderful. I like how each color enhances different details from the swirl. 🙂

I *really* like all the different coloured versions, and can’t pick any favourites; they all work really well. Maybe yellow is the least successful, but I like all of them very much.
In fact, at the risk of being tiresome, I wonder if you might even be willing to do a few more colours? I can visualise the following working well: Orange; Cyan; White; Silver (silver being a sort of mid-grey, about halfway between black and the proposed white).
But if I were forced to pick just 2, it would be the Green and Purple

Sometimes when the ground below us is less stable then we perceive. We slip on the most precarious of falls. Beautiful work Brother.
Some of my favorite works are your abstracts that work with so many color options. (Thinking back of Azula (rainbow), Latticework (green), and The Comb (red)… all so good!) currently, I have the original Minimal Surfaces at my work computer and red on my personal. But they are all beautiful!
All of them are gorgeous, but in answer to your question, it’s the Purple for me. I put it up as my Desktop Background as soon as I saw it. Vibrationally, it’s amazing and its beauty has shown the the Rabbit Hole in a more positive light.

Loved the blue. Loved the black. Went “wow!” at the purple. New favourite.
I really love the purple colour you’ve added, Great job
I’m not usually a fan of abstracts, but this one made me go “wow!”. Especially the pickle jar versions, I love how they’re the same thing, but different colors. 10/10!

Wow! I love it! I really hope you do more minimalistic type art more often!
I use your simple pieces when need to be in the code zone and want minimal distractions. Thank you for another piece to add to deep thoughts directory. 🙂
I like it. It does indeed make a nice change and I’d like to see more of this style.
…I thought, “What’s this? A MÃ¶bius strip on acid?” Seriously, though, Ryan, I dig this. The texture reminds me of the twisted cables of a suspension bridge (a few days ago, I happened to view a documentary on the construction of the Mackinac Bridge). I also like how it appears chaotic at the periphery, but, as I burrow down through the center, more sedate and serene. A core of peace…. Nicely done!
So simple and yet so compelling — I love your abstracts, Ryan. I’m particularly fond of the red and black, but all the colors work. Great!
Yes, Thank you so very much for letting us see the other colours, there all bloody AWESOME.
But the green one from the pickle jar is my very favourite render on this one. Thank you for letting us see the different ones 🙂 They are all pretty awesome.
My son says it would be cool to see it in purple.
I love the colour, it would be cool to see it in a variety of colours. Beside the great colour, the less is more simplicity is just eye catching, another Great job.
One of the nicest ones I have seen for a while. The colours are great and I really like the swirls. Can we have more like this please???
This is a really great one. Like others have mentioned, I would love to see the same thing in a whole series of colors.
There’s beauty in simplicity, keep experimenting with this theme.
Will there be different colors made? I’m partial to Mountain Dew green. 🙂

Ryan, Just wanted to say I love this latest wallpaper – when you blow it across a 24 inch display its mezmorizing – there is a serenity and satisfaction from the curves and symmetry that is really refreshing! LOVE IT!

One lovely looking fractal. Or perhaps it’s whirlpool to draw the eye into it.
Serene but at the same time there’s a hint of danger as if at any moment the aperture will open and its inhabitant, or the coil itself, will pounce.
The design swirls and makes me dizzy looking at it if I stare too long. Blue is good–very good and my favorite–that’s what I liked about your work when I first came across it–all the blue stuff! Although like others suggested, it’d be cool in another color. I’d love it in purple or some other rich jewel tone). 🙂
Ohhh I love this one!!! 😀 Perfect! Don’t change a thing!!
A nice contrast with the (IMHO) too-fussy Avarice. It takes all sorts and you provide them. Thanks, Ryan!
It’s definitely brighter than I normally like, but I like it anyway.
Any chance of this in a couple of different color schemes? Maybe an Orange or Purple version?

Ooooohhhh! Cool!!! How about other colors?
Awesome! Made better by color choice!
Gorgeous image, and my favorite color scheme. The texturing is a nice touch.
I love your designs that reveal intricate detail in simple lines. Some of your macro views of flowers are among the best. I live the texture that jumps off the page, here. More like this, please.
Ryan, I really love this wallpaper, and hope that you continue to release ones like this in the future. As I mentioned on my review of “Dreams of Avarice”, I don’t use any desktop icons (or even a desktop environment). So, I really enjoy the more minimal approach! Thanks for this one! 🙂
A lovely change of pace. I really enjoy these types of wallpapers.
I like this a lot better than the last one. The last one was way too busy, it was very hard to see icons on my desktop. I second the request for different colors and shades. It has a brush metal texture so grayish/blackish color would be great too! Thanks Again!!
I like this! I don’t know what it is about it but I think it’s lovely. 🙂 Can it be done in other colours too? Like a bright red or deep green? For the pickle jar, n all 🙂
Perfect wallpaper for my phone!
Love this one, and I imagine rendering this in other colours is not too CPU-intensive. Could we have a slightly darker blue please?
This is definitely different and a nice change of pace! I love the colors, and the way that it appears to be metallic in nature. Nice!!
