Posted this one the Luxus forum, but I don’t have lots to post, so here it is too.
My first render with Luxus.
Genesis and the lovely DAZ Python.
Any chance you could share the settings you used to get to such a good image? The Luxus PDF documentation is a bit sparse, and video tutorials make me crazy. I hope they come out with some presets to use as starting points; that would be really helpful.
Any road, in keeping with the brief of the thread, a test image of P3D Tom. I was trying to duplicate the look of his painted mohawk with something with a bit more visible height, and discovered that the M5 Elite Hair actually makes a creditable mohawk itself. All you have to do is turn limits off for the “Adjust Sides” sliders, then dial them into negative values. Tinker with the rest of the sliders to get the sort of look you want. Some cleanup here or there might be needed, depending on the look you’re going for, or the angle of your image; the back of his head was sort of jagged.
I added in the M4 Shaved Hair for the stubbly look, but I may skip that next time. Between the M5 Elite Hair and the Shaved Hair and Unshaven for the sideburns, even with Raytracing off for those surfaces, it took 3Delight a full 10 minutes just to do his head, with almost nothing else going on in the image.
