Check out this awesome project of Zeno Pelgrims. He hosts a monthly challenge where you have to create a shader based on a reference image of a object. The first challenge is about a shader for a snowball. He gives you a scene file with the HDRi-image to light it correctly in a program of your choice. It’s really interesting to see approaches of the other participants!
Below is the reference image and my attempt to recreate this. Direct Link to this challenge
