SO WHAT? everyone’s playing with cycles hair so i gave it a try too
this model is a spin off of http://www.blenderartists.org/forum/showthread.php?290369-Freestyle!
at a point in time, i offered this to crazystick studios, but that didnt work out too well for my monkey…
so i turned him into my personal particle hair guinea pig
dont worry, he wasnt harmed in the making of this
It looks like a bad school portrait.
Nice to see you join the land of the living with cycles
@captain, VERY LUCKY guess! i used my own high schl photo as reference over the years, i began to hate the photo less and less. and i wanted my BA avatar to have that kind of look
@monkmonk, pffffff stubborn face cycles was just VERY LUCKY that BI sucks at hair rendering
it took almost an hour to render on my poor poor little pc…and it’s just 200 samples.
i’m porting him back to BI anyways…i’ll replace the fur with a texture or maybe poly-hair. in the process, i should get a lot of practice with texturing, sculpting, normal baking and everything else i currently suck at
