And finally, the diffuse map (Fig.19).

The original size was 4096 x 4096 (Fig.20).

One cool thing about painting an old dude's skin is that you can go pretty far in detailing without being unrealistic. It would have required more finesse to make a young lady, for example.

The bump channel, as I explained earlier is easy to make, since it's already made (see Fig.11). I used this map to paint the specular channel.

In Photoshop, I used the bump map as a background, then added the displace map in Multiply mode on top of it with an opacity of around 60%. Using displace is optional as bump alone can give good results, but if you use both, you'll have wrinkles (displace) and fine details (bump) as a basis for painting the specular channel.

Next I turned the luminosity to something near to dark gray (Fig.21), then into a new layer I start painting white zones where I wanted highlights and specularity (mostly cheeks, chin, lips, upper head)(Fig.22).

Congratulations, your work is fantastic. I started learning Mudbox, I'm an artist, but all the tools of Mudbox are new to me. Your work is very inspiring. Congratulations.

Hi, great mof!! i don't understand when you say "I started playing with the individual RGB parameters of each layes, to see how it influenced my shader at rendering. You can get some quite interesting red color bleeding in the areas where light meets shadow if you keep using values that are multipying by 2 from right to left (e.g., 24, 12, 6 or 8, 4, 2)." Can you explain this better please? You the subdermal scatter color?

I guess you've also found some inspiration from 'Making if the Young Girl' by Viki Yeo. Nevertheless, great to see another nicely detailed walkthrough. Cheers :)
