Thank you jr.

I have uploaded the inspriration. Beksinski was a real find for me. I prefer him
to just about any other surrealist, including Giger. Seriously prolific, and, as
you can see from online, greatly influential.

I used subsurface and iridesence for the main subject, the trees were done in
Arbaro, and all the other modelling in hamapatch. I still haven't gotten around
to using Blender. One of these days!

Cheers,

Simon
