back Out for a Waltz

This is my latest project. I got more into sculpting with this for the first time. The sculpt turned out better than expected actually. I hope you like it.

Only Blender was used (minor tweaks in Photoshop)
Mostly procedural textures (The hand is full procedurally shaded)
Rendering: Cycles, 1500 samples, 1500x2000 px, 10h GPU

    ggeorgeo1989 Thanks :D I used my own hands for reference and did a lot of trial and error with the material. You can check out the BA thread if you want more details:

    That's incredible. How did you get the hands to look so real?

    Wow. I would have been impressed if you'd done this with a dslr.

    I have always seen this in BA, whenever i visited the site.And I thought, 'You must be kidding'.There's no way it's a render, though i know it is.I showed it to my brother and he said "Why are you showing a picture of a man's hands, playing the instrument", there you go brother it's perfect.

    I am left speechless at this, is this really CGI/render - please that is the highest compliment, and you must take it like that, when someone really doesn't know! I have seen a few now where I just don't know - but this is the most realistic I have ever seen!

    Tremendous work, you have a talent that is in orbit!

    I can't describe how fantastic this is. It's full of life, small textures, little details. You did an amazing job. Wow!
