View Full Version : Need Some Help

10 October 2006, 03:34 PM
I've been self teaching myself the program 3DS Max for a little over a year now. I'm trying to model a low polygon tiger for an animation, but I am having some problems modeling it's head. I got the basic structure down, but I can't seem to model the fur coming off the side of it's head. I've tried extruding polygons, but it doesn't look right in the end even after tweaking the vertexes. Any suggestions?

EDIT: Never mind. I got things to work out.

try creating fur with patches separate from the head, and then attach it to the head eventually.

Also look into using alpha maps to help the fur look then just apply them to poly planes

You can also use the scatter compound to arrange the planes with alphas on the polys :)

Thanks guys! I'll give those suggestions a try. :)
