It is an argument against it because there is no way that the one level of mesh on M4 or the zero level of mesh can successfully fill in all of the brow needs for a male texture. It does better with a very plucked female eyebrow but the levels of detail just aren’t there for male textures unless you want them to look plucked, as well. I always include eyebrow textures on the eyebrow map but, in my mind, they have to be in addition to the ones on the texture map . . .
Double-layer eyebrows = extra-realistic? I won’t argue with that! But I don’t see it as a reason for PAs not to also include a no-eyebrow face-texture option (in products with hair and beard options, even just one no-eyebrow/no-hair/no-beard one would be helpful). That doesn’t prevent anyone from setting up double layered eyebrows, and it helps keep the hair color consistent.
Whoo-hoo! I knew it had to be back there somewhere! In the topic for Marieah’s 1-Click Brows freebie there are links to several M4 products with a no-eyebrow face-texture option, all of which (of course) can also be used on Genesis:
Remendado for M4 by Marieah
Dancaire for M4 by Marieah
Zareb for M4 by Marieah
Uncle Albert for M4 by Marieah
Dirty Boy for M4 by Marieah
Ravenhurst for M4 by draagonstorm
Julian for M4 by Balaenanun
Giacomo for M4/H4 by Arki
Gossamer for M4/H4 by Morris
Also, I could’ve sworn that (back in maybe 2010 or 2011) on one PA’s product topic, when I mentioned why I wanted a no-eyebrow face texture option, they put it up as a freebie — I’m ashamed to say I can’t remember the PA or the product. If anybody remembers post it here please.
