A brand new image up on the Scripture Union website today of the statue of Nebuchadnezzar’s dream. This image was completed in Zbrush and then worked up in photoshop
I used simple matcaps in Zbrush which had the same lighting, and then blended them together in photoshop. The background is from a photograph and simply blurred. Shadow added in photoshop. Whisps of smoke are a simple smoke brush in Photoshop.
Stages of development
