I first saw this image about 10 years ago. I’m not sure, but I think it was on the user manuals for the 3D package, Maya. Today, I came across it again, and I was reminded of how much I like it. I can’t seem to find a high res version, or any information on where it came from.
If anyone has any info about this image, please drop a comment on this post.
UPDATE: Thanks go out to Jarret for leaving a comment with a possible origin of the image. It was used on the cover of a book called Digital wizardry : creative Photoshop techniques, published in 1998. I don’t think I’ve ever seen this book, and I’m almost certain I saw the image prior to 1998, so I’m wondering if this was the first usage, or if it was created for something else. If anyone else has any info, let me know.
