There is no Emotion, there is Peace. by 0biwanken0bie There is no Emotion, there is Peace. by 0biwanken0bie
Still playing around with Iray. Trying to find that delicate balance between oily and soft skin. This one has been done for awhile, but I've been hanging onto it because I'm not sure if I like it or not. I'd be interested to know which look you prefer better, or if you like them equally. This one is the slightly oily version of her skin, and here is the soft skin version.  I may end up using both versions to some degree. We'll see. :shrug:

Thank you so much for your interest in my artwork, and faving if you care to do so. I appreciate it very much. Love

Awesome! Moar Fern! How you holding up? Not overworking those eyes I hope... Both skin versions look great, however it may be easier to judge if the comparison renders had the same subject position, lighting and similar posing.

There's always room for moar Fern. Always! :love:

They are still a bit red around the edges, but other then that they seem to be doing fine. Thank you for asking. :blushes:

Yeah... The comparisons thing was kind of a last minute thought. A few others mentioned the same thing as you, and I agree too. Having the same pose and lighting would have been the way to go. Oh well, live and learn. :shrug:

Anyways, thank you for the comments and the compliments. I really really appreciate them! :love:

Yay Fern! Don't really have an opinion on the skin, they both look good to me.

Did she get new gloves or is this just the first time I've seen them up close? Might be different lighting too, but I love them. They look like latex :)

It's due to the new Iray rendering engine I'm using. It calculates light reflections differently, and uses completely different materials. So same gloves, but with a more photorealistic latex-like material. I'm glad you like them. Wait til you see her pants and boots with the same latex material on them. Mmm... :D I still can't find a decent collar for the life of me though. Most of them have to much deformation when her neck turns or bends. I keep looking though.

Oh and Halloween is coming... I think you'll like what she has picked out. ;)

I looked at both of them, I kind of think it depends on the lighting. I honestly like them both but in the case of a darker background, such as this one I think I prefer the oily. Try making a soft skin render with a dark background if you have the time, I'd like to compare. Should make an oily with a light background for comparison as well. imo oily and soft skin textures might work better with a darker or lighter background. Either way glad to see you're back at it and my Fern babeh is back! :) Give Aaylla hugs from me as well, miss that red tattooed bod of hers too! XD

Thank you so much for this wealth of feedback. I've rendered and re rendered these so many times, that I just don't think I can handle it one more time. I have a ton of other things I want to move onto right now.
Most everyone has picked the soft skin as their fave. I'll still keep both of them, but I'll probably try perfecting the soft skin version. :)

I told Aaylla hi, but she just stuck her nose in the air and walked away. I think she's kinda jealous of all the attention you give Fern. ;)

It's due to the new Iray rendering engine I'm using. It uses completely different materials. So same top, but a new and different material. :)

Coloured skin isn't easy. I know, I've tried a lot. Translucency is the key to the nightmare! I'd say between the two you're on the right track for looks, I can't say which is better, given lighting will trash one skin over the other. I personally stay away from shinny skin since sun lit scenes like a jungle scene will turn the skin into a saran-wrap look, but then when you don't have enough shine you get chalk. like this...

Look'n for a date 28 by MsThemis
 
So back to translucency with the right setting can be too much and lead to toon settings.  Cookie in da Hall by MsThemis   So here is a hint to help for realism,  Use the skins Specular map as the Glossy Layered Weight  map and set the number at around .20-.25  and for the translucency a soft blue for Fern if you haven't already. .40 to .55  .     Good luck.

I agree. It's terribly difficult to make colored skin not look like it's playschool plastic. I had the same problem with SSS mats. I think I'm getting there though. It's only a matter of time. :l

PS... I love the 2 Twi'lek cuties btw. Chalk or not. :aww:
