It looks like a monster that would be hiding near a coral reef and would eat unsuspecting divers who dare to swim too close!

I really like it! Nice character design. I think if you change the specular amount on either the skin or the horns, you will get a much richer image overall, giving more variety of "materials" instead of having the same shiny felling all over.

Good work!!

The pass with the red is actually a rim light pass, a simple directional light with raytraced shadows.

The other all red pass which looks non-translucent is a spec pass, with three specs as red, green, and blue so I can pull them out in comp as seperate elements.

amazing work, did your computer eat itself rendering?

how many poly count?
Final model was around 3 million polygons, although the rendered mesh is a few hundred thousand + displacement/normal.
