Sorry, my mistake. I mean: Is this a special outfit from Daz, RuntimeDna oder Renderosity, and - if yes - what's its name?

Sorry I'm too broke to actually commission your work but take a look at my gallery and you might see why? The small scale train set is a money pit and so addicted that I can't quit? HAHA! Keep up the excellent work my friend and you are the best at your craft! :)

Maybe? How about one of us wins the lotto and then we work together? My goal is to make a TV show and looking for expert 3D artist! You my friend are the best that I have ever seen! You don't know it yet but one day you will teach me your craft! Have Poser 9 and so want to do this type of artwork but kinda skilled in other areas if you know what I mean! Hope you have a great night bro and your work rules! :iconheadbanghair-plz:

HAHA! Doubt it! I'm like Forrest Gump but have really bad luck! However, do feel that powers beyond our understanding might just have a master plan for all of us. If it's meant to be then fate will kick in pal! Kinda skeptical but do believe! :D

Great cover

Very nice picture well composed and balanced. Your fire effect is splendid as usual. The mixing of 3D and painted element in the background is incrediblely realistic.

The only detail I would change is the wrecked car in the middle : I find that it give uneccessary attention to center of the picture and obviously it is the same model than the other wrecked car on the left (even if your turn it ;)).
