I started working on the shading of our main character this week, and it is already looking not bad..
but dont take my word for it, look for yourselves :)
it is not done yet, but mostly done. there are still a few tweaks to the Diffuse and Specular maps, and the hair shader that is taking forever to do (creating good looking hair in 3D is hard!)
anyway, when i finish the shading for Light-Claire, ill move on to the sexier Dark-Claire.
