Talking How would one make a fur like shader?

Hi guyz,

I am a maya user and I am new to this shading thing. I am in the process of texturing a rather furry character. How would I create a shader which simulates fur? I realise that there is a fur plugin, but it seems to be too processor intensive on my modest computer. If any one has any efficient solutions I would be forever in your debt!

thanx heaps in advance!

There was a nice tutorial here
But I think the link is not working anymore, maybe it's moved somewhere.

thanx Atwooki!

That shader was quite helpful, although it wasn't quite what I was looking for, I was looking for more hairy like fur. But I'm sure I can learn a thing or two from the hypershade and perhaps change some parameters to suit my needs.

thanx heaps!!!
