general jist of the issue is i suck with particles lol. It was taking far too long and nowhere near as productive as i would like so long story short I set up several curve guides.
the curve guides were then broken down into five rough areas as seperate effector groups.
then to make sure each effector group only influenced the required area i taken the hair cap and set it into appropriate vertex groups with their own particle systems linked to them etc etc.
for some reason some of the particles arent working whereas in other areas they just seem to be flying off however.
any suggestions will be greatly appreciated
