This image, or at least one like it has been in my mind for literally years now. Probably inspired by a couple of NASA's space colony concepts of the 70's, definitely by Ben Bova's novel 'Colony', and obviously to an extent by Greg Bear's 'Eon and Clarke's 'Rama' series!
At any rate, after getting the newest version of Cinema 4D, with render instances, and speeded up sub poly displacent, I did a couple of tests with large amounts of trees, and then started to put this idea to the test.
All modeled and rendered in Cinema 4D, apart from the addition of the little girl (my daughter) in Photoshop, as well as post render colour tweaks etc.

Really amazing work Adam. I was inspired by such books and images as a kid too.
When I got the ebot saying you had a new gallery image, I was expecting another Apple related product image. This is a real treat! Though, you could of named it iColony, or some such. ;]

Thanks folks! ;) - Lol! on the 'Apple' comments ;D - makes a change to do this kind of thing again - this IS what I LOVE to do, and always have - just not been possible to do much of it in recent years, but I aim to change that - this image only goes part the way to some of the stuff I really want to create.
