I'm Reynante Martinez from San Juan, La Union, Philippines--a self-taught 3D Generalist and CG Artist. I'm currently working as production artist and staff on Blender Guru (http://www.blenderguru.com). I've been using Blender for almost 10+ years now, alongside GIMP which took a relatively longer period.

As with some of my artworks, the idea for this one came in unexpected, and when it did, I did not hesitate to push through - get started on it and get it done. The process (which I am very interested in) went smoothly without much technical hiccups. This piece depicts our psychological fears, in every subjective manner possible.
