I have recently graduated from the Academy of Art University San Francisco. The model you have seen in the video, I have created in my last semester. I think I have downloaded over 1000 picture reference to get an idea about what I needed to model. I got inspired by many pictures, concept designs. But the one that I was really like and got inspired by this great artist Mr. Juan Pablo Roldan. I found his work in CGSociety website.

The entire piece model in using Autodesk Maya. I have used several other softwares to create textures and normal maps. I have really enjoyed doing this.
