The Caves of Steel



"...Earthmen are so coddled, so enwombed in their imprisoning caves of steel, that they are caught forever." - Isaac Asimov, The Caves of Steel

This is a tribute to one of my all-time favorite stories, The Caves of Steel, by one of my all-time favorite authors, the master of Science Fiction, Isaac Asimov. I have him to thank for founding my love for all things sci-fi. As a child I devoured this and nearly every one of his books. I'm especially fond of the robot mystery novels (this one being the first), and what an added treat that he bridged them with the Foundation series.

I hope my fellow Asimov friends will like this. I've been working on this and several close-up images of the characters (Baley and Daneel) on the side for a while now. It's been so much fun! This piece took several stages, and because of the complexity and overhead I had to render in two separate scenes, then merged together in the final render.

The characters were created in Poser. The city was created in Vue using about 25,000 greebles. I went a little crazy! I also used some of Björn's :iconariel-x: greebles and objects, most notably his "Hello Kitty Space Tunnel"! LOL! :) Fun!!!
