Brain material
show user profile  cnopicilin

I need to create brains for a music video. I've already figured out the way to model them, but I have no idea on how to create a realistic material for them.

Has anyone even done brains before?

Thank you!

Vray or mental ray user. If vray, you can use a vraydirtmap to add detail. Else, get a picture of a brain, use clone tool to remove the dark lines where the creases are, leaving a smooth surface and apply it to your unwrapped brain. You might also want to use an AO pass to add extra detail.

Kirk out.

Not exactly brains but it's close, and you get a good idea of how to set up materials for this effect.

You can download a demo scene, saves you having to set it up. a few tweaks and you should have brains ;)

Check out the Material section of his site for more tuts/info.
