it looks more like a boneyard.  (what was that inkblot game?)

I would think marble would be like a lightening pattern.

A lightening procedural would be wayyyy wayyyyyy awesome.

RDNA has some free P5 marble procedurals that might be better.

Well, you just know that BagginsBill has done a really good one.

There's one on his site.

I would go with BB's shader ATM.  Although the RDNA P5 procedural shaders are a good starting point, they do lack Gamma correction and proper, realistic node settings to truly reflect marble response to light.  Besides, BB might have some new tricks that I haven't found posted yet.

I'm pretty fine with the marble shader on my site. I just looked it over. For use in P8, you want to change the GC in there to 1.0 or perhaps use the latest hybrid GC+HSVETM I posted in the Dummy's Guide to IDL thread.

I'd also remove the AO - P8 IDL or light-based AO is better.

And don't be afraid to play with colors. At the top is a Blender with a shader of gray in there. Mess with that.

This was rendered in P8 with IDL and the hybrid GC+HSVETM settings.


Renderosity forum reply notifications have been wonky in the past. I'm testing the waters to see if it's working now. If you ask me something and I don't come back, it probably isn't. (Updated January 17, 2017)

It's amazing what Poser can do when someone knows what they are doing! Wish there were a lot more folks like you bagginsbill. Thanks!!

Thank you, BB.  Your help and input is always appreciated.
