I imagine it as a silky cocoon used by a predatory insect to lure in prey with luminescence

Perhaps one of my Trillaspitters (see Deviation link: [link]) could live there?

Would it be okay if I used this as the picture for a short story about the Trillaspitters? In the description I would acknowledge you as the source and provide a link to this deviation.

Sure, go ahead. Just say something like, "Image copyright 2012 Vikram K. Mulligan. Unauthorized use prohibited; used here with permission," and maybe provide a link back to my page.

Wow, this is so neat! How long did it take to make? 83

Not too long, actually. The modelling was maybe an hour, and lighting, rendering, and post-work was another few hours.

Nice. When you say modeling...?

Oh, sorry -- I should explain that. For 3D computer-generated art, the process is analogous to sculpting a three-dimensional model out of clay (only on the computer, rather than in the physical world), painting that three-dimensional model, placing light sources around it to illuminate it, generating a final "polished" image of it (the computationally-intensive "rendering" step), and then retouching that final two-dimensional image in image editing software. That first step -- making the three-dimensional model -- is what I meant by "modelling".
