I think the toung material could use some work. It doesn’t look wet enough.
Wow! The black fur looks great. How long did it take to render?
Its always hard to get that look in a regular raytracer since you have to use raytraced hair to get those wide, smooth highlights. Could you post a few screen grabs of your light setup in Arnold?
thanks, yeah these are overnight renders, the two ones im about to post below are around 600 minutes but i am being too lazy to optimize the scene so im sure there could be savings.
The above renders are my standard lookdeving hdr that i use to judge color, a plain overcast neatural grey environment.
below is daylight system with 3 area lights
thanks for the kind comments
