View Full Version : lemon skin! recreate an old deepshade thingy
04-02-2006, 10:03 PM
Haven't posted a long time. So back with a question maybe sounding nooooobbieee.
I need to create a lemon skin. First step i looked at the old deepshade database found an old shader from ages ago. I first thought it was all shader/ no tex. but inside there was a little tex for the bump.
I need an idea of how to recreate this map with build in c4d tools noises etc.
thinking of layers but i can't get it right.
attached the bump.

Why do you want to use shaders for this? I think the best way would be to just take some pictures of lemon peel, scan them in and use them as bitmaps.

just the general question. I love using shader where ever i can. What i really like to figure out is how these surfaces work and how the can be created.
your advice sounds clear but i like to do it the other way. No need for a texture. I don't like to use textures if there is another way to work this.

maybe you can experiment with the cheen shader like DiGiFran did for an orange in a contest on the spanish forum (http://www.c4des.com/c4desforo/index.php?topic=879).

In the downloadsection on the Maxonsite (materials and goodies) you can download all the Cheenshaders in one free package. There is not only an orange like ben vd mentions, but also a lemon (limon). So that might help you.
