Yes, some sort of. But it isn't acurate or made with MakeHumanSSS (if you happen to be familiar with it). I used vertexcolor and painted the edges and thin peaces white and then set the vertex color to vertex color light (VColLight in the material tab) to give the idea the edges and thin peaces let light through. And I used a slightly white colorramp to give the complete object lighter edges.
Hehe, cool. Makes me think of an alien heart of some sort. Very interesting material. If you ever saw the last level of the old contra game, a cg image of it would be incomplete without that material in it.
