I swear this statue makes me do the craziest things. Working on more sculptural shaders/metallics and decided to try a mix of sphere map reflection and raytraced reflection to get the color I wanted with the traces of color from surrounds, plus that slightly grainy surface that cast pewter often has. This one took 21 hours; more than once I contemplated killing it, but just didn't have the heart, and after something uses up that many hours of my machine's functional time I have to post it.

I know exactly what you mean...I once let a render go 5 days and 14 hours on my brand new dual core when I first got it...a lighting storm killed the power and ended the render. I almost cried. :)) The pewter looks amazing!! I do enjoy your shaders...can't wait to see this one in the store. :)
