Last but not least the last details: the brooch and the sharp claws.

1. The brooch is an object started with a plane object, where extrusions and fittings were done until the perfect format, and after splines objects were added to the contour. The materials are the same chrome material used before and the red material semi-transparent with a little reflection, all included in a Material Mult Sub Object.

2. Maybe you can add some adjustments on the hood to position as image below.

3. You can work the claws now, the blades are sharpened so you can use the modifier Meshsmooth, but it cannot have any rounding on certain areas. Isolate one a claw, select the edges as image below (in this case, go to the sub-object's Meshsmooth and activate its edges, and after attribute it the value1 on field "Crease". Make this process to all blades of the hand.


4. Render's Work

5. Save the work. The tutorial is done, and here is the final piece.
