Plus/Null/Minus This was a very difficult piece to create, but all I used was XARA and Vue d'Esprit for the background. The distorted reflection was first created in Photoshop, and then traced, but the scene could live without the reflection. Getting the "camera" height and perspective were one of the hardest things, and the easiest part was shading the semi-transparent objects. What's it all mean? No idea—it's sort of like the reverse of the movie "2001"...this time, the monolith comes to earth and brings along a couple pals<g>.
