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.

Very nice! *\o/*
It would drive me nuts living there though since looking at it alone makes my head spin (could also be the remainders of an hangover 0.0).
Anyway, how many poly's are we looking at?

;) - Riko - hard to say exactly, as I am not sure whether the render instanced trees are considered in the ultimate poly count or not!? - the scene manager states 4.5 million. :)

So where is the Apple product? ;) Great scene! Recently read Rama. What sort of render time are we looking at?

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.

Great render and I'm sure a most difficult one to compose as well. Thanks for sharing!
