Hey everyone!

I have tried a number of ways to model this bath mat but have had no luck > link: http://i00.i.aliimg.com/photo/v0/206793472/Cotton_Chenille_Bath_Mat_CTN1600_LT_PINK.jpg Here is a link to a photo of exactly what I am trying to make. I have seen it made before in 3D but cant work out the best method of doing it.

Any help would be much appreciated :)

Thanks
Tom

Depending on the needs of the scene, you could check out some of the tutorials at molecularmovies.com to get some ideas as to how to approach this.

Particularly, have a look at Maya 101 - Modeling Using Polygons, NURBS and Deformers, as there's an example of the microvilli of a stomach lining that looks similar to the effect you're going for.
