I have released a new Shader for Blender which will allow people to quickly set up a skin material, without most of the usual work that has to be done.
Creating a realistic character in a scene is always a challenge, getting the appearance and colour right for even minor figures is difficult. Making textures for models is time consuming, expensive, and then needs to be varied for each specific use.
The Easy Skin Shader is a fully procedural tool for Blender that allows you to quickly set up the skin material you want, with enough flexibility to create a wide range of appearances, and to be able to quickly change it as you need.
It has enough detail for close up renders, and can easily be mixed with basic black and white maps to create quite realistic results.
