The figure is Genesis 2 by DAZ 3D, exported out of Studio and imported into Wings3D. The figure was bent around the solar plexus in such a way that the feet came to stand on the shoulders (making use of an idea of David's). The bent figure was exported and imported into Bryce. It is left pitch black, only specularity is set high with a hyper texture and there is 15% of transparency. Lit by the specularity of a specular convolved HDRI from inside. This HDRI tone-mapped also makes the backdrop. The camera looks through the EWL fisheye lens.
