I must agree with GecT on the twist tie idea.
Good character expressions can come from that.

Didn't you guys ever do arts and crafts with pipe cleaners? Not twist ties
Anyway, gonna do some tuts on SSS and I'll be back with some materials and shaders.

Ah yes pipe cleaners. Every time I've seen those, there were bags and vials of glitter and glue surrounding them.

Well with those and the popsicle sticks, my kitchen seems to have turned out to be more of a kid's craft centre. Definitely done crafts with mini-marshmallows.

On a side note, when I googled how to model pipe cleaners this thread one in the top 10 results.

Interestingly, when I googled "maya model pipe cleaners", your post was the second result. Haha.

Google should have figured out that I don't actually give any info.

Couple more texturing things, and then I'm going to go for the lighting (yikes...). Obviously I'll have to do texture tweaking once I get going with the lighting, to make sure things are responding properly.

The matches and marshmallow are looking good Stew. Though the candle looks like porridge a little bit.

Haha... yeah, I tweaked the SSS with a very high intensity point light above it (the flame), so I think it looks okay with the proper light turned on.

That's awesome!

I would think the candle wouldn't have bumps, they're usually really smooth even when melted
