Notes:
I can't really explain the initial inspiration of my image, but an idea came to me one night while I was trying to fall asleep. Therefore, the very first drawing was totally rushed out but it already looked like some kind of an abstract sci-fi version of an energy core/foundry.

I used both Scanline renderer's standard lights and Mental Ray's final gather. More precisely, instead of doing a single render, that would take forever to compute, I chose to render several passes separately so I could then easily and quickly composite them in Photoshop.

The modeling was done in 3ds Max and the textures were done in Photoshop. I must say, modeling the wires was a lot of fun.

I hope that you will like it.

Nice, I like it! A tutorial of how you rendered it and composited it would be great. I'm always wondering how people can produce such great renders with scanline and several passes and just composite them in photoshop.
