This is my first real attempt at "realism" it didn't ended up quite the way I imagined it would end, in my opinion it looks like a very strange black and white HDR, but I like it. Learned a lot from this project.
I worked quite a lot of it, mostly because I had no clue what I was doing and trial and error do cost a lot of time + a lot of time getting frustrated and closing and looking at other stuff
I worked I think close to 60 hours on this "guy" used reference provided by [link]
Thank you for that.

Hope you guys like it.
