This is one of the several ideas which I had in mind when I started learning 3D Max. The main source of inspiration is a memory of a MTG card. I couldn’t remember the card and the artist, but the image of a fat robot-like creature was stil vivid when I created my version. The work process took me 2 days form scratch to final render.
Just a few years later I found the name of the MTG cart – it’s Myr Enforcer and the art on it is by Greg Staples.
