This is a very hard work since it was Impossible to find good reference image of this Artist. And I contacted a relation of his and he sent me two Photos with some information. Luckily I was able to pull this out of it. Sculpt was done in Zbrush and textured in Mudbox. Scene setup was done inside 3Ds Max. Used mental ray as the renderer; but instead of default sss fast skin shader, I have used skin plus shader.
