These are bloodstains, some remnants of a strange ritual of an eccentric hermit or a religious fanatic.

Thought it might be stains or wounds :)
Such a bloodborne vibe hearing the idea behind it <3

Great music for inspiration on this.

Hands can be very difficult, they came out great! 

The detail work in the crucifix is fantastic, I recently did a crucifix in wine that I wanted more like this 

but didn't come close to this good. 

There really isn't much to offer as a critique because it is so well done.

It was mentioned earlier about the lighting on the beads, I would agree with that, I think the 3 beads under the fingernail could be darker.

That would add depth where they are further in the back. Nice touch with the broken fingernail.

Excellent work, I REALLY love this!

Very nicely done! 
I think you did a great job on the lighting and the focus on the hands. And you did a great job with the details on the cross itself. Overall, you did a great job with this piece of work. 

If there's something I can say to make this better, you may consider looking into the lighting and some of the small reflected light details. It looks like the hands were exposed to more light than the cross itself and there's a little dissonance between the two. Either way, I think this is a piece of work you should be proud of, because you did a great job!
