Texture

The texture was created in ZBrush. I used Polypaint for the body and Zappink for the guitar (Fig.08 - 09). Before painting the body I changed the material to SkinShade4. I combined the Standard brush, Color Spray stroke and Alpha 07. Fig.10 shows the settings for the brush I used for texturing.

Hair

When I created the hair I checked the Dynamic option and generated the hair using the time slider bar until I was happy with the starting point. Then I reshaped the hair follicles until I had a nice hair flow using the Move and Rotate tool. I also played around with the hair system options to adjust the volume, curl and color etc. I checked the Hair with Rendering option and continuously tweaked the hair follicles. I changed the hair shape until I was getting results I was happy with (Fig.11).

Skin Shader

I put the color map into Photoshop and adjusted it to create diffuse, epidermal, and subdermal maps (Fig.12). The diffuse texture was de-saturated from the color texture created in ZBrush while the epidermal, and subdermal textures became more saturated.
