One-way ticket to Heechee hotel by Vidom One-way ticket to Heechee hotel by Vidom
Made with Mandelbulb3D and very little post-production.

Inspired by the novel 'Gateway' by Frederik Pohl, which I love.
This is how I imagine the Heechee architecture on Gateway, especially in the claustrophobic area where people lived, waiting for a trip taking them to richness or death :-)

:D I read only Gateway, actually.
I'm glad I could refresh your memory on something you liked, and I strongly hope you liked it :D

Heechee architects were specialized in not let us know where the hell we're going! :D

I know I'm already using one of your fractals for my media trailer, but would it be possible for me to use this one too?

The environment has a surreal style to it that suits one of the moments in the trailer.

Thanks. I still wanted to make sure. We had agreed on the other one but I didn't want to just use another as well without letting you know I would be.
