Created in 3ds Max 2011 64bit, -on a Mac
(using VMware Fusion, -OS on VMware: Windows Vista 64bit. But, I'd recommend using BootCamp instead of the virtual machine, since BootCamp gives you a MUCH better use of your graphics card. Graphics card: GeForce GTX 285 . CPU: 2 x 2.26 GHz Quad-Core Intel Xeon, Memory: 12 GB 1066 MHz DDR3 ). Rendered using mental ray. This was a quick work, it took ~ a day to create (Currently I've been learning Maya 2011 for work at ghOst productions).
The Flayer is singing Jingle Bells, -good for attracting holiday singers. Holiday brains are like Happy Meals for flayers
