I’ve been playing with his genetics, I gathered new Reference photos, and revisited his original design inspiration photos of an old school friend of mine, then weighed it up against his character profile and design requirements. The last version was a bit exaggerated, and had closer features of Asian linage, but was also a heavy mix of several cultures, I think it was all a little too comic. - I’ve steered him more towards Islander/African American perhaps some hints of Native American in there. I think it’s improved his realism, he seems more believable.
I refined his Garibaldi Hair, as I constantly do lol, but he’s now using M5 UV’s and has an improved custom texture set and revised Surfacing Parameters. He also uses Garibaldi Hair eyebrows.
