Michael, you really should give SubScatter a try. It took me forever to figure out what I was doing. I think the payoff has, well, paid off... in spades.
OT re: the model itself, I think I need to monkey with his eye sockets and nose. Never have been happy with those. But if the impression is of him being cartoony, I may just leave it. Maybe his eyes are sunk in as a result of too much alcohol, ya think? Thanks again for your kind words. Now, time to finish building the rest of him, including the other ear, addition od arms, torso and legs, tho you don't see his legs onscreen. Hmmmmmmmm...
