Very nice render! :bravo:

One thing I would have added is blood on the scalpel. It feels like the blood is only there because of the scalpel (because the blade is sitting directly in the blood)... so it feels strange that the scalpel is so clean.

How long did you spend comping and rendering?

Thanks :D

Yeah hehe a more dirty/bloody blade was in the concept though it was decided to have a clean blade to bring it out artistically, render time was around under 2 hours, quite abit of time was spent comping to get the render to match photo, specially for bloom effects, I'd say probably around 7 hours of comp (lots of roto tool in nuke).

Definitely staying away from dirty/bloody blade was a good move. I was thinking just a little trail of blood along the sharp edge of the blade, as though it had just cut into something. Just that small connection between the blood pools and scalpel would have brought it together nicely.

I like the attention to detail of the syringe. Good understanding of mental ray material is so very much important these days.
