Software used:
3ds Max, Maya, V-Ray

The V-Ray Blend Material was used to create the shader for the rusty pipes (Fig.11).

Note: When creating these textures I found the Total Textures collections from 3DTotal very useful.

Lighting

Now I'm going to talk about my third favorite phase of the process, the lighting. I had a clear idea how I wanted to light the scene. I wanted the scene to be dark but lit, and to be colorful. I didn't want any sky light in the scene because this is a secret underground incubator where classified species are produced. For these reasons I covered the whole scene with a big polygon box.

Now the fun part begins. Blue and yellow is one of my favorite color combinations. So I decided that I would put the incubator in the middle and make light come from both sides, blue from one side and yellow from the other. To do this I placed two big rectangular V-Ray lights in the scene (Fig.12).

I also placed two lights to represent the artificial light that is needed to grow the plants (Fig.13). One V-Ray light to light the character (Fig.14), one V-Ray light to light the eggs (Fig.15) and one V-Ray sphere to light the wall and table at the back (Fig.16) as I thought it should be lit with a pure white light.

Fantastic composition. It is so weird but so pretty. I especially love how the textures make the simple geometry so interesting. Very nice tutorial too. I really loved the dusty glass. How did you achieve that?

Greaaat image, but the fingers (shader pink) is kind of fake...like a standart shader only with the color. But the rest is perfect, congrats!
