    Thanks all for the kind words! And Veehoy I appreciate the name of the concept artists. I have been looking for that!

    lightmansor - It´s rendered with V-ray and 3ds max.

    Here is the steps:

    1. Fibermesh in Zbrush and exported as curves (Use the "FastPreview" slider to controll the percentage of fibers to export)

    2. Import to Max and use the "Recomb from splines" button from the Tools menu in the "hair and fur" modifier.

    3. Edit the Frizz and Kink parameters to achieve the specific look you are after.

    4. Apply vray hair material (Vrayhairmtl) and use your polypainted diffuse texture from zbrush as "Overall" ("VrayHairinfotex" is a great way to mix up the root-to-tip color for a better result)

    Here is a some printscreens from my process on the squirrel tail

    Holy .... this is some serious fur.

    Thanks so much for your workflow!
    Beside sculpting you have excellent rendering skills.
    It seems there is almost no way around V-Ray if you want a flexible renderer for animation etc.
    But to get it to your point...well buying zBrush didn't made me a better artist from one day to another

    Anyway.
    It's such a cool scene.
    Done by you it looks so easy - lets one easily forget how much time is needed to come to this point.

    Congrats. Very well done. Hope you nephew know what he'll get there

    About critic - well this is hard for such a brilliant piece, but as my son is 13 now, I am still into this boy stuff. (hopefully will never stop )
    What I miss from this point of view is the collective focus or a better feel of community.
    Your characters are looking to be there together but everyone on it's own.
    All of them have a different focus, not targeting one aim or looking closely connected.

    Boys love if they gain strength through community.
    I remember one birthday when he screamed to his friends:"All against my daddy!" and suddenly I was in a fight with a horde of pirates.
    They really love to gain strength when joining together. (Same if someone posts here on ZBC and really got a comment )
    Saying this, in my opinion one focus of all of them would strengthen the picture for your nephew, even if it fulfils all kinds of stereotypes Doesn't matter if they focus together of against an invisible enemy.
    I just made a picture search for the musketeers i.e. but it's also the same if you search for "Jakers"

    So it is just a point of view and I try to find it from a boys point of view, even though it is interesting if your composition which is finally different.

    Best,


    Knacki

    Your nephew grew up fast...

    Splendid work indeed. I missed your thread a year ago, but now I am suddenly confronted with a top row and a well-merited one indeed.
    Congrats!

    Please add some more images...

    Wow, I can imagine how proud he must be that his uncle can do those wonderful art.
    Thanks for shairing!

    I started to draw when I was twelve...nudes & cars. .....
    Depending on his age he will probably like last super georgous picture too

    Very nice dynamic and the proportions are breathtaking!
    The charming and very well executed face makes this picture a perfect fit for Top Row.

    Congratulations!!!
