It's a hybrid CG/oil. I painted most of the textures in oil, scanned them in, then modeled, textured, and lit in Lightwave 5.5. Rendered it in 7.0 because the ligthing worked out better, after rendering this for massive print rez 7200 X3000 at 300 DPI because I sell these as paintings as a Giclee print, I digitally painted more detail in photoshop. If you want to know more about the process there is an article in CGW about it at the bottom.
