This is an old image that I put aside for a while, after trying various versions. I finally fixed on this version as the best of the different approaches that I tried.
My memory says that it was inspired by an image by Wojtek Siudmak, but I'm now unable to find a Siudmak image that resembles it even slightly.
The objects were created using the Metaball Modeler in Bryce, and then textured with Bryce procedural textures.
