Want skin shader



Can somebody share the skin shading setting presets?

I would like to achieve the Sub-surface scattering effect and I would like to use gradient and surface thickness but I don’t know how to? toggling the colour, or transluency? I don’t know.


I won’t guarentee a subsurface scattering effect, but there are a number of skin presets in LW[8] and a couple of the models that come on the content CDs use skin surfaces which you could look at and decide if they are right for you.

I’m not a master skin texturer, but to date the best skin I’ve achieved was a result of surfacing and lighting. Fill lights and rim lights [sometimes limited to just effecting the character in question] in addition to normal scene lights have made a huge difference.


You could try this rather nice skin shader:
