Thanks for all your kind comments!

@B-Max: Your comment made me really happy Indeed, I wanted to show a person who lived already

@Molte: A friend of mine showed a me a "photoshopped" version of my Image, he made a strong contrast, but I didn't liked it ... I know, it's liked by most people, but simply not my taste ... *blush*
fryrender is an unbiased engine, and those engines render always fully featured (for example, always with GI, Caustics, etc.). So it just take its time for the Quality And besides that, the last version step of fryrender gave a great speed improvement and special acceleration for IBL.
If you take a look at my Gallery, all my Images are rendered with fryrender. I must admit, personally I can't Imagine something better *shrug*. What I love most is the super simple material system with only a few parameters.

@Matasorapit: For the Hair i turned "Generate" on and set the profile to "Flat". So I had polygon strands. I gave it a nice fryrender-material with Single-Sheet SSS. On my website in the "Goodies"-Section is a Tutorial about my Image "The Package They Carry", where I explained this technique.

@sundoorink: Hm ... photorealism is always a goal of me, but I'm also attracted by exaggeration or by showing things that cannot exist in reality ... but this is just a (artistically) portrait of a character this time

@zampano7: LOL!

... Thanks again!

Hey, thanks for the reply.
When I tested fryrender, it gave very good results, but I could'nt see the use of it in production. Seeing this image however, wants me to test it out more
Once again, very nice work.

Thanks again

There's a Making-Of on 3DM3.COM now, if you like to watch:

The focus is mainly on texture painting.

That looks very nice, man.

what about render times?

Brutal 5 stars from me!

John, I was reading how you created the settings similar to fast sss in Maya. How did you set up the 3 sss shaders to match them in Fry? I know the sss and it is great but matching the back scatter and epidermal, subdermal. Out of interest and to save me years of trial renders would you share your findings regarding that shader setting?
