Image made with Maya, ZBrush & Mental Ray. I started this as a head sculpt/sketch from a sphere in ZBrush, but then added the torso... then the lower limbs... then decided it needed a background... then some bugs... then some smoke. Since I didn't start with a design, I just poked at it from time to time over the past couple of months. So I guess the image evolved over time, but I'm happy with where it ended up. The final image is 4500x8000 printed at 30x54.
