I modeled the mech and the monocycle in 3DS Max, but I didn't do any texturing in 3D. I used greyscale renders as an under-painting for all of the color work, which was done in Photoshop. Here are what the models looked like:

Cheers, and thanks to everyone for the comments!

First of all this piece is magnificent, I love it. I came to this thread late… very late. Today I received my CG Society update email and saw your link. The last comment was posted in mid-January so I doubt if you’ll even read this, but I have 2 observations. While scrolling thru the thread there was something about the gal’s head that bothered me, but couldn’t say what. Finally I downloaded the image to Photoshop and blew your heroine’s head up about 300% and then I saw what was nagging at me. The gal’s face is in rendered in profile but her mouth is just slightly past profile to show the glob of banana – not ¾ , only about 5/8s – not much but enough to be disturbing. The 2nd observation is nitpicking (as the 1st may well be) – your gal’s left hand is still cocked in pre throw, when because of the arms position, it should be bent down in follow thru. I feel changing the position of the hand will give more force and movement to the throw and the flying banana. I took the liberty of sketching over your art in Photoshop to illustrate my points.

Again, terrific piece.
