After I finished the texturing I started to do some tests with the shader and light in Modo. I actually learnt how to render in Modo for this project. I found it very simple because it reminded me of the way the layers in Photoshop works. I loved using this new tool!

After some tests I came up with some results that I thought were good (Fig.12 - 13). I did a shader so that the result was like the SSS skin of XSI. I created six groups of this shader divided into Back Scatter, Subdermal Scatter, Epidermal Scatter, Diffuse, Specular and Reflection.

All the parameters were set up by doing a lot of tests and we're created specifically for this model.

Back Scatter group

The shader is set to Subsurface Shading, because it only affects the Subsurface Scattering parameter. In Material > Properties, I set the Material Trans to the following parameters: Subsurface Scattering: - Subsurface Amount 100%, Subsurface Color - 0.49 - 0.0 - 0.0, Scattering Distance - 27mm, Front Weighting - 12% - Samples - 64 and I also turned on Same Surface Only (Fig.14).

Subdermal Scatter group

The shader is set to Subsurface Shading. In Material > Properties, I set the Material Trans to the following parameters: Subsurface Scattering: - Subsurface Amount 60%, Subsurface Color - Texture map with approximately this color - 0.8 - 0.48 - 0.12, Scattering Distance - 15mm, Front Weighting - 75% - Samples - 64 and I also turned on Same Surface Only (Fig.15).

Epidermal Scatter Group

The shader is set to Subsurface Shading. In Material > Properties, I set the Material Trans to the following parameters: Subsurface Scattering: - Subsurface Amount 100%, Subsurface Color - Texture map with approximately this color - 0.96 - 0.71 - 0.56, Scattering Distance - 10mm, Front Weighting - 100% - Samples - 64 and I turned on Same Surface Only (Fig.16).
