The rock was also modelled, sculpted and textured in Modo.

Finally, hairs were made in Maya with Shave and a Haircut. This plug-in is really powerful and allows you to create hairs from a face or curves. In this case I used the curves, and then brushed with the different brushes available:

Lighting & Rendering

Lighting and rendering was done in Modo, with its powerful renderer and pass system. There were two lights in the scene: one in front and the other behind, with global illumination activated:

I also used an HDRI map, an environmental material, and a process texture that allows you to retouch colours and to tweak the final render.

Finally, as I already said, I used the pass system renderer of Modo. It's fairly simple and uses the system layer. Thus, we have to create a layer pass rendering and choose the type of pass that you wish:
