Try copying and pasting the whole line. There’s a space in the url that’s messing up the link.  Sorry. :(

UPDATE: Links fixed. smile

I am sure that what ever you give her will look great!

OK that worked it looks like you used a solid black and white shader. Have you tried color shading an existing skin mat? If you are not planning on distributing the altered texture you could just pick one out of your texture library but if you plan on posting it there are plenty of resource sets out there that you can use.

I did do a solid black and white, and it does hose it.  It was a quick experiment, and I would fix it for a real project with actual maps darkened or lightened.  The skin on the cheronians was very shiny on the black side too, in the episode, so it might help to have a bump map and increase the shinyness a little and not use matte shaders, but it will take real tweaking to make it work.

I remember that episode and I think if it were to be redone today they would have toned down the make up to look more life like, but if you are trying to capture the real look if the original I think you have a good start. I think it all comes down to the look you like and are looking for.

Totally agreed.  And, they were only two examples of a world that no doubt, had millions of inhabitants.  There’s a LOT of room for variations!  smile

I think adding some subsurface scattering and shine will improve the look of my Cheron texture. I’m moving to my computer with Poser 8 installed to experiment.

Poserworld has an “SFO” for V4. But the collar is nowhere near correct.

That would work.  Lets face it, they dont want to copy the original movies.  Though the theme of a vengful character for number two, just like Khan works.


And in other news…

Seems to be the only way I can get the site to work correctly is to replace “www” with “cdn” and then all of the images load correctly. I just wish that when you clicked on a link that it would take you to the “cdn” version so I wouldn’t have to keep substituting…

Hey, Shadowhawk, I’m working on your Cheron skin.  Here’s a WIP file if you (and/or everyone) want to take it for a test render http://sta.sh/02bnnvupk0kc

The main issue I’m having right now is that if I get the black side any blacker, I’ll begin to lose all detail.  My question for the group—does this matter?

If it’s not too difficult, why not both?  As I recall, except for the shininess of the makeup, the black side didn’t have much detail in the episode, either.

Purists will have their true black, and artists will have their detail.

[shrug]  What can I say?  In life as in politics, I’m a big believer in choices.  [wry smile]

Is it a rumour? I created it and you’re spreading it. That’s the very definition of rumour!

I just went by the “your world” line and the fact that Cumberpatch was wearing a Starfleet uniform.

Anyhoo, I’m back to set building. RDuda’s Sovereign Class Ready Room as Captain Norstrom’s ready room aboard the U.S.S. Invictus.

The whole room is great, but I especially love the little added touches of set decoration.  I’m kinda weak on that, myself.
