Working on MakeHuman, we have finally found the most easy and robust way to have sss in human skin.
We have written a short article (it’s WIP !) about how to obtain a good SSS effect using Blender and Gimp.
Take a look, and when you improve the basic tecnique (I’m sure of this!) report me the most impressive images.
Note this is the most basic implementation of this method, perfect to explain the
concept, but, of course, it’s possible work without use Gimp, in example with these nodes (thanks Alessandro Proglio):
