*points up at her avatar* Sadly, the best you’re gonna get out of me (in RL) is a polite handshake. Stupid reservations and phobias about being touched… downer On the other hand, if you ever get a polite friend-hug out of me, you know you’re on a really exclusive list of elite people…

Nawww, did you just reject Spyro :( LOL

What is the *Best* settings for realistic eye sclera (White)???

No matter what I do, it never comes out realistic. It just looks like glossy plastic.

Okay. Here’s what I do: I rarely, if ever, use eyes “straight out of box”. I always end up doing some kind of piecemeal Eye-Frankenstein with different donators.

I take cornea (real reflection variant) from Shadow Kin for M5.

Pupils get looted from Philip, a lot of time, ditto for “tear”.

I usually loot sclera from James for M5, or Philip for M5.

Iris, depending on what kind of effect I’m looking for.

James an Philip. My major issue with the eye is the sclera… It ends up too bright and looks like a white pool table ball… I tried playing with my own diffuse texture and it looks great, but the shader/Material parameters just make a mess of it. I’ll load up those characters and have a geeza. Thanks Skiriki!

I was thinking maybe my issue is not just the spec and diffuse, but perhaps that I haven’t used sub surface or translucency perhaps…?

I shall look up shadow kin M5… I dont have him, but I could play with the cornea too.

On the cornea - Do you use the cornea bulge morph??? I havent and am not sure weather it’s to make it anatomically correct or toony??? I have no idea why we have that morph LMAO

Shodow Kin has a very nice skin bump texture! - Is he hairless?? I avoid hair textures, largely if my target character is young or If NOT I use Zev and Mec’s fiber mesh body hair

Hey anyone have the pose packs for V4 currently in the Fast Grab? How well do they work with Genesis?

Shadowkin M5 is hairless, yes. He also has subsurface and translucency that create an interesting effect that you don’t normally see in that type of texture.

No matter what I do, it never comes out realistic. It just looks like glossy plastic.

What I normally do is use the eyes from Liu for Genesis and then just leave them alone, unless I want some sort of really stark effect, in which case I use Actual Eyes, which have interestingly varied irises but very very very white sclera.  Which is one of the reasons I was happy to see “Look at Me 2” in the store recently—I never knew Look at Me 1 existed, and it’s a bit more than I want to pay at the moment, because there are a few other things I want to do. Raiya’s characters always have really good eyes—and of the ones Skiriki mentioned, James M5 is a Raiya character, I think. (Mind, I do have to remember that the eyes have a different UV than the rest of the body, but since I normally don’t touch them beyond that, it’s not too difficult.)

I will Ubersurface body textures right, left and center, but I won’t use shaders on eyes, because I somehow always screw them up and wind up with blindingly white tears and eyes that look like the character has the Cataracts o’ Doom. DOOOOM! Doooooom….. (Sorry, having an Invader Zim moment there.) The franken-eye approach would be a bit more than I’d really want to try regularly. (Despite having no problems swapping bump, displacement, specular and SSS maps in and out with wild abandon. Hey, nobody ever said we had to be consistent about these things!)

What effect is using shaders on eye texture supposed to produce?

(...Has anyone ever noticed that pursuing this particular pastime makes a person sound like a really strange combination of Doctor Frankenstein, a window dresser and the serial killer from Silence of the Lambs? “Well, I use this part of the eye from that one, and this texture from someone else, and then there are the lovely vein displacements. And then I have to use this part of that outfit there and that part of that outfit, and then I have to make sure the lighting is right, and then I use aniMate and then She’s Alive! ALIVE, I tell you! And disco dancing!”)
