County Blues

This is a young woman having a bad day, she’s wound up in a holding cell in county jail. I wanted to make a scene using a human model and try to get some emotion out of it. Been toying around with it for a few days and thought I’d throw it up for critique. Still a long ways to go on materials. If anyone has any tips for makehuman -> cycles, please share, especially on the skin and hair. But I’ve been staring at it for so long that I can’t really see anything anymore. Thanks.

cool scene. good expression. how come there is a white brick among the greenish ones?

I though it might add a touch of realism, like it had been painted over, but it just kind of sticks out. So I yanked it. Here’s my thing: Up close, the face looks a lot more real than it does from a distance. The whole body looks plastic-ey. Need to try out some of the simulated SSS skin in cycles.

Her dress is so shiny and smooth. It looks weird. Also it looks like she is floating above the bench.

I agree, both easy to fix. I’m kind of getting tired of the makehuman experience, I want to try either poser or the victoria model. Anyone have any preference (or another model/rig source) Sounds lazy and wishful but I just want a realistic model, fully rigged, ready to animate. Maybe I’m dreaming, but I’ve about had it with the mhx/rigify options from makehuman.
