'Gimmie Some Skin: Tutorial by toadz 'Gimmie Some Skin: Tutorial by toadz
This image is is the final render of a tutorial that is located to the right as a download.

It is a tutorial for DAZ Studio on using UberSurfaceShader with your characters skin. It's the first part of a series where we will be wrking on ALL the materials in the scene, not just the skin. It'also includes all the details of the lighting for the scene.

I've hit a document limit in Photoshop so I've had stop at this point of the tutorial and will be carrying on with the rest once I am done posting this. Part two will be up when it finished, or when I hit the limit again for the next part.

Save your scene once you have followed the tutorial though because you will need it for the next parts, then have a play with the settings in you might have learned about in a second save of the scene for experimenting with, such as changing a few colours, strengths etc to get a feel for it all, but you will need to save original for the rest of the tutorial.

This tutorial is aimed at people who are new to using UberSurfaceShader and want too see what some of it settings and options do.

Please feel free to drop any critique or comments on the tutorials as it is my first DAZ Studio tutorial.

The skin looks great, I'm going to give it a shot. How about a tutorial all about hair ?

That was a great tutorial! do we make a "Apply these tutorial settings in one click" button? :p

I bought that Injection product ages ago and NEVER use it, except for the eye reflections, which are great. Even with his advice in the forums, I can't get rid of that goddamn redness. Your tutorial helped me understand what it does though. Thank you! I might try it again...

I'm really looking forward to your next tutorials now! This was a VERY easy tut to follow and if something wasn't obvious, you explained it. I like that. Thanks again! I might start using Daz for rendering again (I'm preferring Reality/Luxrender these days...)

Enjoy! I also have a few mini tutorials posted that cover skin again, as well as different surfaces like hair, cottong, leather etc. Have fun! :D
