Portrait of Dick Smith (WIP)

Here's the progress on the portrait I've been working for the past two months. It's not finished yet, missing more details on the clothes, likeness tweaks, hair adjustments etc, but I rather post it now, even if unfinished, than never post it at all. This project is serving as my workbench to test things out with Arnold 5/randomwalk SSS, so I can re-use those findings with future models.

100% hand crafted: all textures were polypainted by hand using ZBrush in HD mode, all details were hand sculpted either using ZBrush's own alphas/brushes or my custom set of hand sculpted alphas, later converted into brushes.
* No scans, commercial textures/alphas/brushes were used in the making of this portrait.

I rendered this one to test a pretty cool camera lens shader developed for Arnold by @zenopelgrims to emulate various vintage lenses. The preset I picked was the the Zeiss Biotar 1927 58mm.
