I’m not that great with materials in Cycles (yet, hopefully!), so I’m going to ask for some advice here. I’ve been trying to create a felt material using Cycles. I’ve searched the web for a good material, but the one I found is quite old, inaccurate, and doesn’t take into account the little hairs that come off of felt.
I’m going for this look:
Basically, crafting felt. My attempt at it was not as accurate as I would want. It doesn’t really seem as course-yet-fuzzy as real felt is. I’ve posted the picture below. Basically, I want this to be as photorealistic as possible, so I am using both materials and hair.
Does anyone have any ideas or advice on how to make this better? I suppose I should try to get some real felt and perform a test with a texture instead of a procedurally generated material, but since I don’t have any felt to make an accurate texture of right now, I’ll have to do that a bit later. I’d prefer procedurally generated so I’m not limited by the resoloution of the felt texture.
