Make Complex Geometry Quickly With Hair And Brushes

March 17, 2015


In this AskGSG segment, Rod Eiji asks us how to make this really nice render from FOREAL. We decided that Hair and Brushes would be the best way to go about it. First, Chris uses hair to grow the general shape. Then, he uses brushes to comb it into place. Next, we turned the hair into real geometry and lit it for the final render.
