piz: yup...ta daaa! haha.

Well I'm friggin tired. Its 4am here. Talk about having no life whats so ever. Sheesh.
thanks for the kind words brett, this character of yours is bad ass, ive been keeping my eye on this one for a while
Wo-ha! Yessss! I love it!
Dude, did you use displace map or normal map with an "intermediate" polygonal cage? With which Render Engine?
Anyway... Really cool!
If you want you may add some kind of rim light...

"Talent and all that for the most part is nothing but hogwash. Any schoolboy with a little aptitude might very well draw better than I perhaps; but what he most often lacks is the tough yearning for realization, the teeth-grinding obstinacy and saying: even though I know I'm not capable of it, I'm still going to do it." -- M.C. Escher, in a letter to his son Arthur, 12 February 1955
Hi there, looks great as usual, always great to see that its not only the Springboks that are of world class, keep Africa on the map...
I am still picking up every possible tut as to 3D, gives me sleepless night, but I love it...
looks good, there wouldnt be any specular on him underwater. You can use other tricks to bring out the detail, like a facing ratio pass. Some subsurface on his fins would be nice, sss will diminish detail as well though. Its tricky, but you could get it looking real. Some chromatic aberration and little more depth of field could really sell it. water diffuses light like crazy, so use area lights for sure.
wow !...great character ! i like it !
So I think I'm finished with this. Other wise it'll carry on and on.
In the end I decided to just show the model. So no fancy background or anything. Oh I also flipped it. Feels better this way.
2 pass render. Colour and Occlusion with a level 2 model from zbrush displacement and normal map.
Hope you like it
Intervain: Thank you. Glad you like him.
elfufu: Thanks man. Your work is freakin bad ass . Hope you like this render. Chat soon.
Jaycephus: HAHAHA. Nice.
Sigmund Hentze: Ag Ja. Thanks man. Hope the 3d isn't killing your life though. It becomes addictive. Soon you'll be shaking. HAha.
bneall: Thanks for the help Ben. Much appreciated
skulll_monster: thanks dude.
vlad74: thank you.
