This is a project I worked on alone over a 6-month period.
I used 3D Studio Max, Maya, ZBrush, Photoshop, and Unreal Engine 3.
"You are one of the surface seekers, a select group of intelligent sea creatures that is rebelling against the religious norms of their society as they spearhead the renaissance of their time."
The following are scene screenshots from Unreal Engine 3. The post following this one contains the prop sheets.
