Be aware that this render is very much a work in progress, as I’ve only done a general body and limb diffuse map so far, and need to create custom specularity and bump maps for her face, body, and limbs. I used a standard V4 specularity and bump map for this render, which is why you can see a weird bump mapping effect below her eyebrows (I painted my own eyebrows that closer resemble Liara’s, but they aren’t the same as the standard bump map).
