This was a piece of speculative art that I presented to Jon Anderson for cover use on the Yes album ‘The Ladder’ (1999). According to (then) Yes keyboardist, Igor Khorashev, the piece actually hung in the studio in Vancouver, BC during the recording of the album.
Ultimately, the piece was not chosen for use, and only a handful of prints have been made.
The tower structure was created using Strata 3D. The landforms, bridge supports, and various other details were created in Bryce, and the 3D image elements were composed and rendered in Bryce. All post compositing, painting, and effects were done in Photoshop.
