    Awesome! Congratulations! What was the goal of the contest? Did you model the virus as well? I saw on cgsociety web that a team was involved in this project. Do you mind sharing how large and what were the team members responsibilities?

    Thank you friends!

    All small elements exept the "body" was taken from the HIV Model generated with CellPACK. (HIVBloodSerum_1.2 autoPACK). Body object modelled with ZBrush 4.

    Absolutely lovely! I like these images a lot.

    Would you please tell us more about your scene/lighting/rendering/post work for these images? The lighting, colors, composition, materials, depth-of-field are all spectacular.

    I thought it was kind of a shame that this contest wasn't presented better at CGS. It wasn't really listed on their main "Contest" link, the forum thread for it was a little lackluster, and the autoPack website for the challenge wasn't really maintained. I, myself, didn't find the challenge until it was too late to enter.

    I'm glad that you found out about it, however, because this work is amazing. Congratulations!

    Many days I tried to find a composition solution, playing with the model. All
    attempts were not interesting and I decided to go with the other side.
    I decided that it is necessary to try to express the nature of the HIV not only in colour or render, but also in the form.
    I started drawing, began searching the spirit of HIV on the paper.

    After I found the shape on the paper I have made it in Z-Brush.

    Thank you very much for responding with the breakdown. Your color choices are very bold, and they worked out great in the final images. Your post-processing is very impressive, as well. Congratulations, again. Cheers!
