Another old commission, I think I did this like 3 years ago! o_O
It's the front cover for actor/writer Matthew Ewald's (who I also worked for on other projects) horror novel Human Nature
The skeleton and the other elements were completely modelled in 3D, I remember putting a lot of time into this, pushing my boundaries on modelling back then. Done in Wings 3D, so there wasn't even sculpting involved oO
Rendered in Cinema 4D if I remember correctly. I did the compositing in Photoshop then, tons of layering.
Matthew's novel can be found on Amazon: [link]
