Joe, NOT kidding.  You make a set of these that work with the pose morphs and are easily textured: I’ll bloody well buy them and parade the product around everywhere I can!  They’re bloody amazing to me!

Thanks a lot for the free eyebrows, not everything should be up for sale, as there are those of us who can’t dispose of any of their income! smile


Don’t go thinking I’m particularly saintly.  I’m all about making money on product. I just don’t feel comfortable selling things where I know the software has done more of the work than I have.  I’ve seen a fair deal of people use a lot of hyperbole, when really genesis fibermesh hair is very simple to make.  The only real hurdle is the cost of entry, purchasing zBrush.


That’s exactly why I’m glad it’s free as it doesn’t take 5 hour to make, that said, if you were to take 5 hours to craft a product, then by all means, go for it! I suppose that I’m against paying for something that has been made with the same effort as walking to the kitchen and opening a can of pop!

It depends, if you have neither the kitchen, or the can of pop, it can be worth buying one that someone has made. grin  But Joe is awesome.  Don’t let anyone tell you different.

Have you tried using the skin textures as a SSS strength map? If the brows are darker than the est of the skin that might help a bit.

anyone
.
question 1
I’m still trying to get a grasp on this, I’ve been keeping Subsurface Strength between 10% and 15% does that sound about right?
.
question 2
Shold we also be using the skin textures, pluging them in as maps for Subsurface Color? Leave the color bar white and just plug in the texture.

Wancow, are you a Daz Studio user? I could whip you up some fibermesh brows pretty quickly if that’s the case, and they’d naturally follow Genesis’ morphs. 


Facial fibermesh for Daz figures in poser is a bit more of a hassle.  With a figure like Apollo, I could just morphing clothes all of the morphs in and make the facial hair superconforming, since there’s a one to one relationship between the dials and the morphs they affect.  V4 and M4 are much less direct in that many of their facial morphs are actually control dials which affect multiple morphs at once.  You try to transfer that using morphing clothes and the results are pretty ugly.


But yeah, I could make Genesis brows in both masculine and feminine varieties in less than a couple hours, I’m sure.

If that were a product, I’d buy it. I do have the Genesis Eyebrows, and they work fairly well, but they don’t conform completely to all morphs (eg. Chibi-Boy). I haven’t tested it extensively but I think the farther you go off “norm” the more problems.

A set of eyebrows that worked with any (or even most) morphs with both a male and female style would certainly be worth purchasing to me.

I’m just trying the genesis eyebrows for the first time and (though I’ve only tried with the Elite Lana texture so far) they don’t really seem to blend in very well at all :/

Stupid question here. This is a cool tip. Would you reccomend doing this for the whole body or is it safe to only do this on the face?

Applying SS to only some areas will look odd - if the skin is visible, of course. Or if you mean applying the diffuse map, then again you want continuity so yes if you try it on the head and it works you’ll also want to do it on the body - watching for places wheer the map is light but SSS should be low.

Hmm.  I was going to mention that Hitomi has separate eyebrows and a “blank spot” on her brows.  But now that I think about it, this sounds like something that could be solved pretty easily with the L.I.E.  An opaque “cover” patch to obscure the original eyebrow and a second layer of add on eyebrows so you could get some really extreme Mr. Spock/Dr. McCoy/Corporal Klinger* eyebrow action going on.

Of course, once either of the two new hair aps, LAMH or Garibaldi, finally make to the store we’ll have an even better solution.

(*And oddly enough, coincidentally, a Mr. Spock/Dr. McCoy/Corporal Klinger three-way just so happens to be the thing I LEAST want to see as a 3D render…)

And I’m out of brain bleach (it’s Sunday evening and WV doesn’t allow hard liquor sales on Sundays…).  That statement needs 150 proof brain bleach…

Hey, how do you think I feel about it?  My brain came up with the idea in the first place, so who else knows what else might come out of there?  (And besides, it’s no where near as bad as an Ed Asner, Danny Devito, Steve Buscemi and post-Boston Legal William Shatner five way… Bill’s hairpiece being the fifth wheel… on a slip and slide covered with SpagehttiO’s.  Fortunately, no one’s made a 3d model of individual spaghettiO’s yet, so we’re safe.  I hope.)

Related to this topic, I’ve got a list going of products and freebies that include at least one no-eyebrow facetexture option.

Hi Joequick.

These have been removed from sharecg. Do you still have them available? I am using custom face texture and need a set of brows….

Yes I do….is there a limit on what threads should be replied too? I am new and thought I would do the courtesy of replying to another thread instead of clogging the site full of noob questions….
