combination of Poser and 3D Studio MAX was
used to render the main focus of this image,
before being altered within photoshop to achieve
the full effect.
swirling mass of material above her head was
also created within MAX and intergrated into
the image through photoshop lighting effects.
a small amount of airbrushing was used to
touch up various areas along with a subtle
background lens flare for the final effect.
