(This is a story from the life of an artist.)

Anyway, on with today’s show and tell.

Today, I have an image of the skin shader testing I’ve been doing and a sample of a color map painted in Zbrush. I’ll be focusing once again on getting the characters ready as I’m satisfied with the current state of the prison guard armor which will be used randomly for the prisoners as they will have confiscated most of it from the guards or from random storage in the barracks of the prison.

That’s all for now.
