Software used:
3ds Max, ZBrush

In V-Ray is when you use a high reflection glossiness, keeping the values below 0,8, which is very important to increase the subdivs level. In this project I used a low value (16), because it was a very bumpy surface and it "hid" the low resolution of the shader. On polished surfaces it is better to use higher values, like 32+, because if you don't you will have a very grainy reflection. Another tip@ I used some yellow on the reflection color as it gave me a golden look (Fig.08).

Once the shader was done, it was time to render the final image. It was rendered at 4000 x 3000 pixels and it took around 1-2 hours to complete. I used a Gamma setting of 2,2 on the scene and rendered lots of passes, but I used just three: the beauty render, the ZDepth and a V-Ray Raw Reflection. These helped me a lot with the composition, giving me control over the highlights.

I used some Curves and adjustment layers in Photoshop to increase the image's contrast the way I wanted and added some dust after that (Fig.09).

This project didn't take me lot of time; it was a fast study and I really enjoyed doing it (Fig.10)!

Very nice but How can were you able to apply the The cavity mask to the decimated model considering the decimated model doesnt have texture coordinates??? how did you unwrap a mesh so dense as that one??? That is very crucial to the conclusion of your tutorial
