fade out

Hello. I am trying to figure out how to make a texture like the finished hair wip
in this topic https://blenderartists.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=29921 can somebody explain how its done?

Well to get the “faded” look you need to add a “Blend” texture in the texture buttons, then adjust the colours. To get the streaks you could create a second texture layer with a very stretched marble texture.

I hope you know how to add procedural textures in Blender.

btw, this should really be in the “Blender General” forum unless you actually have some work to post here.

You will also need an ALPHA map to get the transparency effect. Do a google search for making ALPHA maps and all should become clear for you. :wink:
