yep its on
You cant see those little messed up details on smaller version, that pic is just part of big version.

Here is pic of the render in 3dsmax(mental Ray)
It is working good, but has like a little skin texture effect on it, it isnt smooth surface

Here is the zbrush model, If anyone can test this out and see if they know how to fix it, be great
