Indeed, it is easy to put in scene an environment that can itself be transferred
Here is an example of a digital sculpture used in an illustration.

It can be done from a photographic montage retouched with Photoshop, or, in our example, a
complete creation in 3D with software dedicated to the creation of an environment like view.
I chose a simple seabed, with a little choppy sea, under clear weather, a beautiful seaside
location for diving with the Leedsichthys.
