Modelling wool *eek*

Hey all,

As part of a project I've decided to devote myself too I have a question. This is a quick sketch of the style of character I am next going to model, but bearing in mind I want to keep it as a sub-D model how would you go about modelling the wool part of the body? I don't want to use sasquatch and that wouldn't do the job I don't think anyway.

So how would you do the body?

cheers

Only thoughts I've had with that is if I want to use F-Prime, I may want to render scenes with GI and LW is a tad slow for that level of rendering. So if anyone has any other thoughts?

A quick muckaround but the style applied for the wool effect isn't too bad and that's with HV's...



[edit]

OK I decided upon using the Normal Displacement tool in the object properties panel and this is the track I'm gonna go down. Cheers anyway Ben but if FPrime 2 does support HV's then who knows

I wouldn't have blends on between the voxels, and for hero shots, perhaps have some volume HVs in there too...

PS. I wouldn't be using GI to render this anyway - it's not as though it's intended to be a photorealistic sheep anyway. If you want to fake GI you could always use spinning lights and such...

I may setup a proper lighting rig to emulate GI, no I'm definitely not going photo-real but here is a very quick sneaky while I work render :$ of what I am striving for :-



This is using the Normal Displaced object property method and then saving trasnformed...

Why don't you use the good old metaballs? instead of HV.
