Theme day submission. This started from the previous manip i did of the Hulk (based on a combination of a Randy Bowen Bust and a Jim Sweet statue). I found some good explosion pictures and decided to do the Hulks origin in the Gamma Bomb explosion. The explosion layers were built up to give it more volume. Banner was added at the very front of the explosion. The smaller hulk forms part of the explosive cloud and came from a picture of a model i found on the net. A bit of blending, shading, and there ya go.
