In browsing around I came across this little 3D piece by 'cardinal' sanely titled 'Resident Evil'. The article on 3DM3 covers how Cardinal used Cinema4D, Body Paint and Photoshop to build an image inspired by the movie poster for Resident Evil: Extinction. Below are 3 images showing the inspiration construction and finale - check the article for more. I am yet to have a play with Cinema4D, but it is obviously very capable in the right hands - though the dominance of the Autodesk apps cant help.
