Hey everyone!

Over the last several years I've taught myself Photoshop and more recently discovered a love for 3D artwork. At present I don't get to spend as much time on projects as I'd like - maybe one day I'll even be able to turn a hobby into a career!

Thank you for visiting and I hope you enjoy my gallery - I love comments, so please feel free to leave some :) and thank you so much for all the watches and faves, it means a great deal to me!

Many thanks to :iconsithlordsims: for the wonderful Danilo head morph - hope I did him justice for you!

M7 skin test 2 - tanned comparison by tigerste
M7 skin test 2 - tanned comparison
Following my previous two uploads, here is a more direct comparison between default M7 Iray shader and my tanned variant under different lighting.

You can see the default shader is very orange compared to my custom shader, which is more natural IMO.

You can also clearly see the texture seam between the arm and torso UV zones, which is because the torso spec map is darker than the other skin maps including arms, legs and face.

M7 skin test - custom shader by tigerste
M7 skin test - custom shader
As with V7 I wanted to create my own custom shader for M7 as I don't like the default Iray shader under most lighting conditions - his skin looks too orange. As before I've also created a pale and tanned variant.

Left: custom pale shader
Middle: default M7
Right: custom tanned shader

No postwork. Both variants have custom SSS maps with the only difference being reflectance tint.
There are problems with the M7 spec maps which will be illustrated in my next upload. I've since updated the pale shader so that the sclera of the eye isn't quite as red.
