I’m working on a wordpress theme for a wood carver. Here’s a thumbnail to show the approach I’m taking.
I built this graphic using 3dsmax using splines and bevels and then lit it with two lights one at top left and a dimmer one on bottom left.
The whole graphic shows the header surround, the sidebar top and bottom background and the footer pieces. The high res graphic will be cut into chunks for backgrounds for the various parts of the theme.
