The objects were modeled in Rhino and rendered
pretty quickly in Bryce with some effects done in Photoshop. A combination
of 2d and Bryce textures. Rhino is great for quickly doing models
of this sort, a lot of fun but also very accurate and fast to work
with. I am working on a big version of this sucker for desktop wallpaper-
you can actually make out the detail on the large version...
