Looking Cool Mr. Baker!
I've been dying to get back to playing with Fibermesh hair myself, but after work on other projects, I've been playing with some hard surface stuff which I never really do. There's always something to improve on...but I'll finish up some hair on my Mountain Troll soon!
I've always had a lot of respect for your work!
One of the best presentations of fiber mesh i've seen.
I suppose the lower fangs should be less sharpen. You know what I mean )
The fur looks so awesome, Master Rick! Great stuff!

Hey thanks guys. I had fun playing with ZB again. It has been a while. Funny how fast you forget, well at least I did. Maybe it has something to do with my age. Anyways I didn't mention that this is a ZB render with some PS adjusting. I used light cap for the first time as well.
This whole deal was about trying the new stuff that I wasn't familiar with. I especially wanted to use fiber mesh because I like harry creatures. Thanks pixolator for adding this function to ZB.
Hey Roger, sorry I couldn't make that Modo meeting but I did just get 601 and have been playing with that a little too. Too much fun stuff to play with and so little time at the moment.
Deamon3D I agree about the teeth I tried to make them less sharp after I did this last render but it didn't work out too well. I really need to build them properly I guess.
Anyways It is great to be back on this forum lots of talented people here. Wish I had more free time to play and post.
I might be able to squeeze in an hour or two today maybe get this puppy,or kitty, back to where i had him before my computer froze up yesterday.Boy I hate doing something over again right after I just did it. Hopefully I will learn and save more often.
Anyways thanks for your kindness
Thanks for showing Rick! Great stuff! See, crashing-without saving happens to the best of us! So fun to watch what you are doing now days compared to what you started at with things like Werewolf in London stuffs. MIB3 is coming soon...we gonna get to see some of your new creatures from that soon? Anything you concepted in 3D? Zbrush, Modo, etc??
Really awesome progress Rick, this is going to turn out horrifying! I can understand your saving problem though, ZB makes it so easy to get carried away in just sculpting and sculpting that we forget to take a second and save!
Anyway, great to have you back and to see some more awesome work from you, it's always a pleasure.
Well I worked on this a bit more ,got it to about where it was when I lost it. Still not finished but wanted to post the progress. This is a couple of ZB renders combined in PS. I really want to start over. I think I am understand this more and could do lots better. I'll try and do a better render later in the week. It's funny it looks more dog like before I do a BPR render and from front on. 3/4 view with the stubby muzzle makes it cat like. Anyways just wanted to make a scary beast with hair so I could try and figure out fibermesh.
thanks for looking
I haven't posted in a while, but i knew this was yours. Really nice work up on the hair. Good to see you have a little free time to play. look forward to following the progress.
Rick, I love your work! I'm sure this has been asked before, and frankly I feel a little silly for asking but I have to know. Are you the Oscar winning makeup effects Rick Baker? If so (and even if not) I've admired your work for many many years. I never passed up a Fangoria with your name on the cover.
Umm... if you're not that Rick Baker you're still doing an outstanding job with Zbrush. Sorry to hear about your lost work woahs, been there done that.
If you try to array more dense and short fur on a muzzle it will be more epic.
Looking forward and so expecting a sharing tutorial about ZB fibers
I´m glad you got little embarrassed earlier (althought you had no reason to)
It´s just getting better and better.
Best work i´ve seen with fibermesh!
This is pretty cool! But I think you should adjust the settings to make the hairs seem less course.
See this video, it sure looks like real hair to me:
