Ultraboy from legion of superheroes - i started this planning to make all the clothes as assets, all the clothes were modelled on the average male, but when i use Makeclothes to get them into Makehuman, it works until i try add the muscular male topo - then the clothes become all distorted, so in the end i just imported my character and all the clothes OBJs into blender fit them manually, then parented the clothes to the rig, added weight paints, all this simply so that i could pose him... Fun stuff :)

Cool scene! Is that the new hair shader?

Thank you.
No old version of blender 2.79 - just using the hair shader nodes - x2 one transmission and one reflection. the node setup does about 90 % of the work,
But then i render my hair on a separate layer, so when i setup my scenes to render it renders both the hair and the model separately, then i move to node editor where i combine both the scenes, overlaying the hair on the model, doing this i can now use an rgb curve, hue and saturation and bright/contrast node to fine tune the hair without affecting the model at all.

the first Emo-type superhero I saw in my life. I always thought superheroes must be at least 50 years old and wear colorful bodysuits :lol:

Great work as always, o4saken!

Thank you.
:) the finger wasn't planned originally - i was in the process of closing all the fingers to have the arm just resting there, but then i saw how interesting it looked with the middle finger unmoved, so i left it, and it worked quite well as it matches his expression on his face, kinda naughty look which i think is what makes it as you say the character feel like he is waiting for the right moment.
