A variant of the TinTrout model… While playing in modo, this view somehow triggered a desire to try a little Photoshop post.
GroBoto - (MetaSolid Modeling System - simple geometric primitives & booleans).
modo - Additional modeling plus materials, lighting & rendering.
Photoshop - Texture maps and Post (just a bit of subtle compositing and paint).
Backdrop is an abstract layering of several old GroBoto renderings.
There is a WIP thread is here:
