Hi guys! This tutorial shows an advanced setup for the VrayFastSSS2 shader, emphasizing the creation of a realistic shader for human skin. This can be used in cartoon characters too because of its flexibility at render times that helps both cases (realistic and cartoon). Pay attention to scale values that influence the look of the entire shader in the render. I hope you guys enjoy this tutorial and if you have any questions, please send me an email.

The truth is... The result is not realistic at all. You should put your diffuse map in sub Surface Channel. One copy of it in diffuse channel and set diffuse level to a maximum of 0.3. A map with the veins in Scatter color. Thatīs the way it works for me (of course with maps in glossiness, specular, etc...
