    womball, thanks for the indepth information. It sure gives me a lot to go on and I picked up lots of tasty bits. I appreciate the time you took to give this information to me. I have had so many countless hours of trial and error and this helps alot! Thank you

    punchatz, a.k.a. Greg,
    First off, thanks for the kind words.
    I value hearing how you got your start, and all the effort and passion you've put into getting where you are.
    Your absolutely right about the pores technique. It has been around awhile. I see it everywhere. I just didn't realise it.
    As far as the technique I refered to as WadeWrinkles, it seems to be just an "on-the-fly" version of making custom alphas, that suits unique wrinkle shapes. I find it handy and like that it feels alot like a "real-world" sculpting approach. Nothing special, just handy.

    I really appreciate you posting. Especially from someone with your long track record, experience, and high standing in this community. Thank you Greg.

    Oh, here is an old photo from back in the day. (It's a slightly altered version of the original).

    Thought you might get a kick out of it. (Look at everyones hair back then )
    See you around here and thanks alot for the PM

    Holy mullets and camaro mullets! Aaron Simms looks like he's out of some 80's music video/ hair stylist,Greg kind of has manly hair that is eating his one eye (btw I figured out the different layers of the sss shader, just not entirely yet), ;-)and for you, you remind me of Bruce Cambell+ mafia hitman+afro= gorilla suit.

    No wonder why you guys can turn out fantastic artwork so fast. That's at least 20 years of experience! Makeup effects is something I would have loved to try, but they didn't offer at my school. Its tempting to enroll in Tom Savini's college up in Pittsburg.

    Yeah it sure is nice to know we all did it before it was digital! Wonderful to see this stuff again. Great to see images of the people and things that drove us to do more - posted here. As for the hair issue mentioned, man we all had the 'look' for every era!! Haha, it's a wonder any of us haven't been scarred for life. Besides I'm sure some of you would kill to have the hair now a days!

    I had a thought about your WadWrinkle technique. If you mark the model before you go into Projection Master you should be able to line your alpha up perfectly.

    (did anyone say this already?)

    Scott Spencer, Jason Belec, saltapiedras, billrobertson42, baker17, Elixir,

    Thanks guys,
    I am presently trying to wrap my head around the painting thing.
    Sadly, when I pick up from projection master, their seems to be a big difference in how it looks. Also, when I render, "Best" it changes even more.

    Anyone, any way to paint and have it stay the same?
    Appreciate any tips...
    Thanks,
    ~BW

    You might want to take some images of the differences. You can do this with prtscn button next to scroll lock. Than in microsoft paint, just hit paste in the edit drop down. Screenshot of the action! This is assuming your using windows, not sure how to do this with a mac.

    Hey Brian,

    What happens when you pick up from Projection master? If you are painting color and it shifts that seems to be a bug with the pickup routine where small artifacts will sometimes appear in places unreleated to your painting. I usually correct these with the morph brush as I come across them.

    As for painting details in PM if you pick up and it is suddenly softer that just means you need more subdivisons in the model. Try raising the max poly pr mesh setting under preferenes:mem to the highest. This can cause some instability though...

    I may have misunderstood the issue you were having though but if you just export your document you can post an image of what seems to be goig wrong.

    best,

    Scott
