Here’s a set of colorful pens showing the quality of the new material system. This image features sub-surface scattering in the ink droplets and the plastic body above the metal grip. A low coefficient was used for the SSS ink so it stays almost transparent. Scattering really helps catching the light and making the ink feel like it is lit from the inside.

Rigatone Arion SSS

The First SSS test of our blog. It was done using a medium-high coefficient value to scatter light in a very random way inside the object, and an asymmetry value close to 0 to get an even forward and backward scattering. A second layer was then added to give the object some shininess, like you’d expect on a cooked pasta.
