Need help about SSS in night scene

Hi everybody,

I need some help to finish a 3D Illustration.
I work on Maya 2013 with Mental Ray. I use the Fast SSS Skin Material on my character to produce a better look with lights in the scene (Carnival scene).

But I'm a noob for SSS Shading, so here are my test renders :



Can someone give me some suggestions to have a nice look like that ?



Thanks

I think the SSS skin may be nullifying your contrast. Try reducing the ratio of scattered to unscattered, or turn down the scale to less than 1. Tweek between these two settings and see if you can find a happy medium.

Yes finally the scatter with a scale less than 1 is better, here is a result :
