For this quality, key is photoshop postprocessing with his own painting/manipulating skill. See through his gallery, he's got a painting ability in very nice level so a raw rendered image doesn't matter that much within his art creating process... That's what I think... 3ds max MentalRay or Vray and photoshop, but more important the painting skill himself experienced.
The coolest thing! You know, in our city of Kyiv we have a statue like this. Dedicated to the victory in WW2. But it's armed with a sword and a shield. Looks like our Mother Motherland has gotten new weapons.
What a wonderful picture! So crisp! and I wonder how many people have noticed the missle like objects launching in the background. Is this what you meant when saying "The winter is coming"? Like a nuclear winter.
Somewhere in the North... an underground city's miliatry facility detected an outside threat. Before anything had happened, before most even knew about it. Missiles were being launched to defend those who never knew what hell was about to be unleashed upon a facility disguised as a radio telecommunications array.
