Edit: Thanks for all for the postive feedback and stars! Much appreciated.
I started this scene thinking I’d enter it in the realism contest, but I ran out of steam and entered another completely different scene of a woman laughing. There’s only so long you can stare at worms. But looking back at my render folder I liked how a couple of them came out, and they are completely finished, textured, lit and composited so I’ll call it a finished piece. I had two different mini-scenes with lighting, and here’s my favorite from each one.
