I've rendered the image above using Jame's materials. for a full view of the image download it.
In this tutorial James examines a few different strategies for achieving a realistic skin shader in Cinema 4D, but that are also useful for other applications.
See the full tutorial and download the sample materials at the link above.
Please send a note to the club if you use this tut. in one

"Skin has a particular quality that sets it apart from ordinary surfaces: it is luminously translucent. That means that in addition to the light that reflects off the skin's surface, light bounces around the layers of flesh below the skin, illuminating it from the inside. This effect is widely called "Subsurface Scattering", or SSS for short, and is a property of a number of translucent materials; wax, plastic, milk, and marble, to name a few."
I don't use C4D; but, I can imagine that Poser users and us Reality users would find those SSS settings invaluable. Any way we could get the settings in text form so that we(reality users) could convert them to a useful form for Reality? I've gone through so much trial and (mostly)error that I've just quit using SSS in reality/luxrender altogether
