      I’ll try to put something together, however if I remember correctly I used an amalgam of 3D texturing in KeyShot and retouching in Photoshop to create the overall look.

    Just bought it and starting, it seems great. What’s the human anatomy book Ben mention in the reference chapter?

    This is gonna be awesome, but one thing i noticed because i use a subwoofer in my studio, is that the audio has a lot of low end. I recommend process your audio with a high pass filter around 120-180 hz. Not a big deal but just a suggestion.
    Cant wait to dive into this this weekend
    Cheers
