The piece was built entirely in 3D. It was modeled, lit, and designed in Maxon's Cinema 4D. It was painted in 3D Coat then brought into Adobe Photoshop to fine-tune the details, shading and final color grading.

After studying dozens of different metals, their age, reflection qualities, oxidation, light observation and dramatic appearance, they landed on their final design.
