I love this thread, its great to see some people really getting stuck into hair dynamics and shaders. Not only that, its really nice to see your progress on how to do it. I hate to ask but is there any chance of a link to where you found any relevant information for your wip, ie shaders, dynamics tutorials etc. Its such an effective result im intrigued with regards how you achieved it thats all.
Ps i think the girl looks her age atm, i keep looking at the chin and the indentation at the bottom of her neck just below the adams apple, it looks a little too deep. Maybe just a perspective issue.
Keep up the great work. look forward to updates.
