The female image is a portrait in oil of one of Ian's studio models.
The painting was then scanned and used by Tobin James Mueller
in a 3D setting Tobin created in Bryce 4.
The final image was produced in Photoshop 4.
Tobin added shading, tints and highlights.
See Dido's Oath for the completet image as used in the Power of 10 project.
This webpage also has a detail explanation of the image.
