Featured in Digital Design Magazine with a ‘Making of’:
Some might recognize the Mustang in the background from one of my earlier works, but the Mustang was actually originally created as a prop for this image.
Everything except the mountains and sky is 3D. Modeled in 3ds Max and Zbrush, rendered using V-ray with minor color tweaks in Photoshop. Hair is done using standard Hair and Fur in 3ds Max.
For the curious the tattoo is Latin and says ‘Life is short but misfortunes make it longer’.
