Project Description

Welcome to my latest course for Digital Tutors. This time we will be exploring the world of nHair and Fur in Maya.

Throughout this course we will begin by walking through the various methods used for initially setting up your hair, before we explore more advanced areas like collisions, dynamic forces and of course shading and rendering.

On top of this we will also touch upon Maya Fur as we add a generous covering to the toy she is holding tightly onto.

Like most dynamic systems in Maya, nHair and Fur can seem quite intimidating and most artists assume the set-up process is lengthy and stressful. What I hope to show you with this course is that nHair is simple to setup, easy to adjust and work with and you can achieve professional results quickly and painlessly.

By the end of this course you will have mastered the foundations of nHair, and be confident enough to add hair, fur, stubble or anything you can imagine to your future characters and creatures.

As this course focuses more on the creation of hair and fur I thought I would upload this extra image, which shows the various steps I took to complete the render.

I hope you enjoy this course, if so please let me know.
