@Carey thank you!
as is the usual case this is missing a little something, it looks great, but it is just not ready for those super close ups, least not yet...Course I would love to tell you exactly what that little something is that says "I'm Real" but I only know what my eye tells me and not how to achieve that "live" look..
I know. Well, it was one of the first versions of what become "Photoreal Superfly"... And velvety flowers is one of the hardest objects to do right. Pansy Parade is in to-do list, but it's _very_ long list...

I am in love!!! I want it, I want it!!!
If only there were 48 hrs in day...
I'd like to release skin as a product before NewYear, but...
As a shaders for my own use, skins (eyes, teeth, nails) are finalized, even in 3 versions: pure glossy, fast SSS (1 sss component), full SSS (multy-SSS components). Both SSS versions for pure diffuse maps and for the cases when SSS map provided with character. As a product - no, and, honestly, I have no idea how to pack it. Big (and pricey) MR? Big MR + some sweet deals for most popular characters? DawnSE, Maraki, Africa and Asia sets... Time, Time, Time... Didn't even finish my Helloween project as soon As I wanted (yesterday :().

I have purchased many products titled as " merchant resources" this might lighten your load as far as packaging, I know exactly how you feel, well almost, as your mind appears to be a bit more organized then mine is. My mind goes in so many different directions, many times at once, sometimes I feel like some kind of genius, that is until I see some of your work...lol One thing you will get from me, my honest opinion, it is never meant to be personal and always it is intended to be helpful. No, I am not looking to horn in on any ones product, I am here to help advance the art if I can and my friendship when I can't...lol

I would buy a MR that had basic metals (like Gold, Copper, Silver, Chrome and may as well whack in a Mirror too) with Superfly and matching Firefly mats (because I have no idea how to do it in FF either).

I would also buy one with SF and FF that had like a metallic/glitter car paint that I could change the colour on, but had different settings for the size of the metallic. :D

Black and Purple Iray is in beta :sun:. Had some unforeseen troubles with it and had to use non-Ubershader to get decent speed.

WIP SF tutorial
No changes in the materails and lights between the renders.

@NapalmArsenal about kind-of-glowing, but not really emissive materials... And cat eyes.

Yes!! I can see that with the cat's eyes for sure!! Would be awesome!!! Really cool could also be stones on jewelry like carnelian .

@eclark1894 probably I will include sample scene(s).
But in most of the cases, it's one HDRI or blurred HDRI, and I can't include what is not my own :)
In last case it's even simpler - 1 spotlight, that's all.

One more Black and Purple Iray beta round. Hope it is last :)
Itay much faster with simplified shaders, even with spectral rendering on.
Black glossy version.

And non-spectral version

Non-spectral is ~25% faster.
And ~50% faster than UberShader version.
