I Zbrushed the Theropod on the cover. He's one of the early ones. There's about 28 more to come that I sculpted as well.

Hi. Yeah, I worked on the program. Wish I could pass on more images but I can't. The BBC probably won't like it. :)

Lights and shaders are awesome! What render do you use? It's my dream to make such skin effects =((

Thanks. The lighting dudes did a good job. We use Arnold renderer with HDRI and a bit of SSS. Which is good when it gives the under belly a bit of softness... but not too good when it's too strong.

I like the hard feel you've got to your renders. Maybe a touch of SSS will bring out the fleshy areas more. :)

Thanks for the answer! Arnold render? Is it Softimage right?
Yes, you're right about SSS. I was trying to learn this shaders in Mental ray or Vray but I've not got any success... I don't know the reason but rendering is the most difficult part of work for me. (

Arnold is a stand-alone renderer for XSI, as far as I know. They used it to do Cloudy with a chance of Meatballs.

Mental Ray SSS is tricky to crack. Best to break it down and tackle each SSS layer one at a time. Also using the SSS specular shader to get the spec right right and then copying over the settings helps a bit. You don't have to sit through all the SSS calculations just to see if the spec is right.

Keep it up with learning SSS. Sure you'll crack it soon. I think your dinoes made their way into my reference material when I did these dinoes. :)
