I’ve spent much of this morning trying to learn to comb a head.
I first used retopo to add a plane onto the head and then added a static particle system to it. The result was exactly what I wanted, its only that…
…the curve guide passes right through the head to the opposite side of the neck and as soon as I add another curve guide it interferes with the first and messes everything up.
Playing around with the curve guide min-max distance, I managed to reduce but not eliminate the problem. I’ve tried to use a lattice instead, but can only get it to affect the emitter plane, not the hair.
Any hints, tips, and tricks?
PS. I uploaded some more related images at flickr.
