Thankies much for the kind words I still consider myself a n00b; it’s a journey, not a destination
It’s the skin that comes with Michael 6 HD. It’s all about settings, though. I actually do prefer the earlier skins (I use the M4/V4 Auto converter plug-ins).
What is key is making sure that the skins (no matter what generation) have a photo-sourced base, vendors do mention that. Getting the settings right is also key, the ArtXtreme interview has a very good range for glossiness. Most vendors will also include specular maps, which is key for making skin look alive
On the other end of the spectrum, giving skin a high gloss is good when you want it to look artificial
