Lyon and Paris

I quite like getting the spammy emails from Renderosity as they point to nice things now and again. Danae recently released two new morphs and maps for Victoria 4.2 that are beautifully executed and the renders are gorgeous armed with the special PoserPro 2012 Subsurface Scattering (SSS) shader. The maps of the skin with all the little colour and tone variation as well as the freckles is very well done indeed.

The nice thing then is that this puts assets of this quality into the hands of artists who don't have this particular skill but do want to create. Imagine if Pixar gave 'us' the rigs, models and environments used to create Brave - people could then leverage that talent for their own creative works. It isnt that simple though and no doubt even working out the render complexity in a masterpiece like that would be a big job...

Anyhow, here is the main promo image for Lyon and Paris:
