Great model! The specularity on the neck seems a bit too sharp-it looks kinda greasy. Keep us updated. We wanna see more!
Thanks a lot guys.
I did some tests and was very impressed with how fast ZBrush handles it. I exported it to maya for rendering, but turns out the hair was too thin, so I'll try thicken it up a bit next time.
no, not decimated. This is just a subD level less than the highest level. But I'll decimate once I finish the detail work. I also like to try the displacement in Vray, but on this model for some weird reason I'm getting some artifacts on the render.
yeah, the only map being used right now is the subdermal map, also plugged on the ambient channel. A specular map will be added to get sharp reflections on the mouth and lids, add more spec to the forehead and to eliminate the spec on the neck.
that's a cool face too! But no, this one is based on James Bama's painting. You can google "James Bama Roy" and you should be able to see the reference I'm using.
Congratulations on Fatherhood Kris!!
Lovely to see a post from you. Stunning results.
Best wishes to you and your family

Thank you boozy!
I was being sarcastic
I know that there are some weird faces out there, wrinkly to the extreme, but people normally say it's overdone when they see something like this, reason why I mentioned
This is a very cool reference, btw. Thank you!
Here's a little update. Mostly color map, spec map and SSS shader tweaks. Also some PS comp tweaks.
Everything in progress:
i think it is great... the face is very interesting....
the final product will be good i can sense it
Wonderful character, it really turned out great! Bravo!
It reminds me of Farm Security Agency photography by Dorathea Lang and Walker Evans during the Depression.
