The Gandalf scene is done together with a good friend of mine, Ovidiu Enache, the creator of the Gandalf sculpt. The whole idea was to create a room where to display the statue, so I created an imaginary museum room for that. The statue display stand was created in Rhino and the rest of the scene was assembled in 3DS Max and rendered with the new finalRender 4.0.
There is also a timelapse showing how I created the scene. Also you can view the sculpt timelapse done by Ovidiu here https://vimeo.com/241087098.
