Not having the funds to keep buying Iclone products, and needing to develop a cast for two animated movies, I looked deeper into Daz and Genesis characters. One of the things that impressed me with Iclone CC was the use of substances to enhance the character textures. With this in mind I looked further into Substance Designer, having purchased it around the same time as Iclone 6. Here is my first attempt of creating facial makeup for one of my characters.

Very cool!  That's a lot of detail they cover. Smile

Very impressive. Perhaps you could do a tutorial as to how you did it?

Meet Substance (Genesis 2) Man (W.I.P.)

While this is in just the early stages, with substances I can change a lot of the facial textures on the Genesis 2 character in a similar way that Character Creator does.
The advantage of this is is that some of my existing Genesis 2 characters can now be altered without resorting to time consuming changes to the individual avatar textures.

There is still quite a bit of work to be done with tweaks both big and small.

Great job on this super Substance you've created. Smile

You've got a lot of variations available there that really help bring the character(s) to life.
