This was a very early work of mine. When I first started with 3D art, I was mostly doing Character creation. This was done in 1999.
The Warrior was created in Daz Studio. The Landscape and Sky with Bryce7. The props were created With wings3d and adjusted to fit in Bryce.
CGI has come along way since then, not only in the overall Visual presentation but in the Hardware we now use to render our works. This took Hours to render back in those days. Today with the PC I have built for myself, something like this takes mere seconds to Render.
