I am very happy with the way this piece turned out. I spent a very long time working on the lighting to get it perfect. There are a couple of details that I probably would have fixed but I didn't even notice them until the render was done (and I did not want to wait another 12 hours).
I learned a lot from a tutorial I purchased recently, and it really helped me out. I would recommend it for anyone who works with V-ray and C4D no matter what their skill level is. It certainly taught me a lot of modeling techniques and the basics of setting up good lighting with V-ray.
