I think the color and design look pretty good; however, I recommended learning the mentalray fast skin shader. Go to .thegnomonworkshop.com and register. This link takes you to page 2 of the free tutorials where they have a couple on the mentalray fast skin shader.
Trying to get to grips with the fast skin shader, had a tutorial that said map into the diffuse overall colour but for me this did not work wasted a lot of time trying to get it to work. In the end mapped texture into diffuse colour and epidermal scatter colour and changed the lights around as suggested. Any comments would be greatful as I think I have looked at this for to long.........dave
