Texturing

I exported the whole scene into 3ds Max as an obj file to start the texturing and lighting. Texturing the scene was also fairly easy. I used V-Ray Blend Material for most of the shaders, including the dusty glass that surrounds the creature and the rusty metal. One secret is that I have used a Perlin Marbel procedural map as the mask for 99% of my blend materials, because it creates a beautifully organic look (Fig.06). The character's shader on the other hand is nothing but color and specular maps (Fig.07).

The velvet shader is created with a V-Ray material with three Falloff maps nested together in the Diffuse channel and a Noise map as the Bump (Fig.08). The back wall is simply UV mapped with a texture painted on in Photoshop (Fig.09).

The egg texture was created with a Cellular procedural map (Fig.10).

Fantastic composition. It is so weird but so pretty. I especially love how the textures make the simple geometry so interesting. Very nice tutorial too. I really loved the dusty glass. How did you achieve that?

Greaaat image, but the fingers (shader pink) is kind of fake...like a standart shader only with the color. But the rest is perfect, congrats!
