View Full Version : Feathering A Bird

10 October 2006, 07:12 AM
I have a cartoon-style bird character modeled that I want to apply body feathers to. I have tried fur and can't seem to make it look feathery. I have had little success with paint FX feathers as they never look right and bog down my renders horribly. I was admiring the work done on similar style birds such as the ones featured in "For the Birds" "Finding Nemo," "Chicken Little," "Ice Age 2," and "Valiant" and I was wondering if anyone knew a way to generate similar effects using Maya.
