Far into the future, a colony is set up on one of the moons of a purple gas giant.

All the models were constructed by myself in Bryce. Additional texture images were drawn in Corel Photopaint and taken from photographs. The photographs were taken by me. [2006 - Bryce 5, Corel Photopaint]

This is so cool! Yeah, kind of how I envisaged life on Mars actually. Except this doesn't look like Mars. Where is it? This ought to be in the Sci Fiction Bifrost tour.

23 Polenth Blake replies: "I wasn't in Bifrost for that project. I don't have much of a detailed story for the gas giant, other than it being far away from our solar system. That might change, as I'm planning to design its other moons at some point. Backstories tend to grow as I make pictures."

This is nice. However, I can not stop wondering why anyone would build a pyramid inside a habitation dome in a space colony. The must be some reason though. Perhaps an alien arceological artifact? And the dome was built to make exploration of it easier?

56 Polenth Blake replies: "The settlers follow a religion based on the old Egyptian religion. The pyramid is a tomb for the first leader of the colony."
