Thanks to everyone who helped by giving me critiques.
The character and background were put together using compositing passes in Photoshop. The smoke and sparks were added in post. Rendered in Vray, textured in Mari, and modeling changes and posing in done in Zbrush.
This was an awesome challenge and am very glad that I was able to participate and finish. This challenge finally got me to get Mari installed at work and now I do not think that I would ever want to texture without it. Good luck to everyone else who is trying to get this in on time.
