Run through this tutorial, ignore all his talk about T-splines...its really hard to explain UV unwrapping and PS painting in a thread...but that tutorial is a start. There are lots of similar ones out there for ya too...just search "maya tutorial, UV"

edit: going to find a better tutorial

Here is another one...again not so good:

And another:

look into mental rays "sub surface scattering" for that one.

I'd make a video but I'm away to work in a few mins.

thanks, I've tried to tutorial and it works but the only problem is that when I follow these same procedures with my monster head model, it fails to work. The Miss_maya_simple material is always highlighted in red and whenever I render, only the eye renders.

Here is my project http://www.brickshelf.com/gallery/OQ.../newmonster.mb

Do you know what I am doing wrong?

This is what I made with the tutorial


and this is what I consistently render when I use the same technique with the monster head; obviously, it's shiny/plasticy and doesn't look like skin at all.


I suspect that the (mysuperSSS) part is what's the problem but I don't know how to fix it. Any help would be appreciated. thanks
