The pants were simple (Fig.13). In my references, the pants of the aviator were just fabric and seams. The baking of the mesh allowed me to give a degraded feel. I was not decided on the color of the pants at this point. As you can see in Fig.13, I tried out different color passes before I found that worked - a classical color, but also one that fitted with the color of the jacket.
The lighting was very simple (Fig.14). I used two principal V-Ray lights, one in front and one to the right, and a rim light to the left. I added another light on top to create dense shadows and the same for the back of the character. I also added two spots to create the specular of the eyes, with an exclude. The shadows are in normal resolution, with no particular option selected.
Render / Compositing
I used V-Ray for the render, but it was very simple. I just added more antialiasing, activated the GI and the result was very convincing. I rendered some passes for the compositing Fig.15: a pass of GI, Occlusion, Lighting, Shadows, Specular and a cache for works the background. The beauty pass was the final pass and I used it in the compositing stage to add more details.

Thank you for the Tutorial.
