Busnismanpatriot, Bfngz, thank you! Selahpoetic, I used a plugin for 3ds Max called Wrap It. It was extremely effective, and only cost around $60.00 so it was well worth the buy.
Here is another piece I had started as a sketch, but went down the pipeline and rendered it in 3ds Max with Mental Ray. It is the ‘Oracle’, an amazing sculpture done by the artist Jordu Schell at Schell Sculpture Studio. I cannot take any artistic credit for this, however was very happy with the technical progress made.
