Very nice image! i too am very impressed with your lightning. Did you use MR for this pic and if so did you use any global illumination or how did you achieve it? considering youre working on an animation how do you plan to keep render times low? (by baking the GI if you use it?) It actually looks like its a software render with just a lot of work put into the lightning, but still interested in hearing about how you achieved it. ok just a few short questions but in all the picture is really beautiful, great work and good luck with the rest!
