UVW info: all objects were UVW mapped in UV layout. What is important to know is that you have to turn off the UVs in ZBrush before exporting and re-importing meshes.

Lights

When using translucency in V-Ray you should use V-Ray lights - this is to make sure you render the materials correctly. For a nice light set I used three lights, one in the back for some bright shiny borders, one in the back-left and one front light (Fig.05).

Post Processing

After I rendered the clean bust of Mr. Burns I decided to make a second version as an old photo portrait.

I used the first render (Fig.06) and worked it in Photoshop. I changed the colors to a more brown-like tone. Then I added an "old paper" texture to the photo. I got this free texture from the net. And last of all I erased all the cracks in the paper texture in the face area.(Fig.07) .

I hope this was a little helpful. If there are still questions, then please feel free to email me.

Nice, though strangely the wrinkles look paperlike

Magnificent. Saw the small thumbnail and recognized it immediately. The position of the hands was also a great give-away. Very nice job.
