Real special thanks to Kevin Weber (http://bluevisual.tv/) who generated the books and the cover texture that made this scene so much more detailed, bigger, and incredibly fun to work with. Kevin was responsible for creating a books-on-bookshelf generator and not only that created the fantastic fully procedural book cover generator that I can't let go of.
Ornament details referenced from an awesome free vector pack Alvaro Cabrera / Freepik, and Jonas Ronnegard who created a fantastic Zbrush ornament pack that I totally fell in love with the first shot I saw it.
And thanks to everyone who threw me critiques while I developed the scene over the last 2 months.
I used the following programs: Modo10.2, Zbrush, FilterForge, Photoshop, ClipStudio Paint. Kevin was responsible for the Houdini part.
