The fast skin shader work on the volume or scale of the model so will look different on each model, you need to get each layer working there was a free tutorial on the gnomon workshop web site you should check it out............dave

If it wouldn't create a problem you could post the scene file.

Its not lame if you dont know you dont know. A little tip that ctbram shared with use is to turn of the two way light in the lighting panel, then normal facing the wrong way will look black.........dave
