Just another illustration with my wolf model.
I’ ve tried to achieve my childhood vision of it.
Maya for modelling, rendered with MentalRay, Shave and A Haicut for fur.
The background is 3D, I’ ve used a textured sphere with self illumination for the moon.
The trees are polygonal.
The rendering is made in a single pass and the hires version is 3636×2567 and took about 30 minutes to render it out.
Rendered in two passes and composited in photoshop, where I’ ve played with contracts and color gamma.
The highres rendering is 2544×3588 pixels
Tools: Maya, MentalRay, Shave and a Haircut, Photoshop
