I love this-- especially with all the hair shadows falling over the face. No
fakery there!

I'm curious: In the news thread you mentioned (or maybe an offshoot of it), one
of the ideas was to color each hair along its individual curl, like uv-mapping,
using some clever code. I can't really discern that effect from your posted
render, but did you do that as well?

Indeed. the i5 has 4 cores / 8 logical processors (hence my +wt7) and
the i7 has 6 cores / 12 logical processors, where I generally use +wt10
or +wt11.

Naw-- an i7 with 8 cores/16 threads is the way to go :-P (My previous machine
was a Win7 box with 'only' 2 cores! How did I ever manage with that?!)
