Thanks, Bobby. About that expression: He can't help it, it's just his resting bridge face. :)

Thanks, Doc. Me too! So much to learn. Am becoming very aware of the importance of knowing some anatomy, and am focusing on that and just building mesh after mesh. It's holding up work on the scene but should pay off sooner or later.

Experimenting with some new shading techniques.

It is. I also use procedural 'skin faults', and an image map of tiny wounds and pockmarks and stuff, that I can shift around on each character. If you use a guy this close you'd also need some eyelashes. In DAZ that's a very simple row of polys and an image map.

Fair enough. He also needs at least some hair. But for now he'll be in the middle distance (or further back), so no need. But if he's ever used more prominently it would be easy to add those.

I downloaded the 2019 Mudbox trial and have been running it through its paces. There are some issues with the Mac version but the Windows version is solid as a rock. It's very easy to learn and use.

Another test for comparison with earlier version. Distinct improvement, I think.

Thanks. There was less to it than you might think . . . started with a few basic pieces and did a lot of duplication and mirroring.

But anyway it's hard work… I know it from working on finished models. My respect!
