That's a fantastic tutorial. I don't know if I've ever seen a cleaner and more concise breakdown of an image.

My only issue with the image overall is the odd choice to use a modern, high-temperature engine hose connected to Pinnochio. Everything else could be right out of an early 20th century workshop, and then there's a modern, high-temp hose right there in the middle, which I believe may not have come into use until the 50s or 60s. Just seems a tad out of step with the implied time period of the scene.

But that's a small quibble for such a brilliant image. It certainly deserved to win and is one of the strongest CG illo pieces I've ever seen.

Amazing image. I was surprised by the simplicity of the lighting. And, yet again, I feel I need to get ZBrush.
