Modeled in 3dsmax, rendered in Octane.
Nope, this was not modeled in Topmod. ;) It was modeled entirely in 3dsmax, making extensive use of the great maxscript, Super Poly Bridge by miauu, along with some other techniques and modifiers. Couldn't have done it very easily without that incredibly useful script, which allows polygon bridging and extrusion operations along a spline path.
Enlarge for details. More to come.
