    Yeah, looks like he's got a hint of hyena in him too. But, a really badass looking creature! Got any tips for styling hair? Not the ones on my head. For that, I use gel.

    I will be original and criticize because.. I really love your work and I know that not only you can but you will do better . Right now it looks a bit fluffy - I dont think this goes well with it. Area just over the nose looks too curly too - normally this place is rather fat/wet looking, flat hairs close to the skin. Unless you are going for puddle/hyena crossbreed
    Cant wait to see where you go with it!

    Thanks guys, Glad to hear from some of the old timers her on the forum.
    I agree with the criticisms. I am a bit out of practice haven't touched ZB in about a year because of other commitments.
    This was my first try at fibermesh and it was during some free time over the past four days. I learned a lot playing I'm sure I can do better next time. It is a bit tricky and how you render it really effects the outcome. I did try and get some different colors and textures and directions on this beast.I must say I have forgotten more that I have remembered about using ZB. It is a different beast now though isn't it?
    One thing I haven't forgotten is how much I love playing with it. I'm looking forward to really having some time to do a proper ZB piece and not just knocking out something .
    anyways thanks for looking
    Rick

    Great to see an example of your experience with ZB hair -yet to tinker with it myself.

    Kracken,
    First off as far as tips goes, I would ask someone who knows not someone who has just been playing with off on on for the last four days.
    Second I would say don't be afraid of it just play with it that is what I did.
    Third I would say don't do what I did but start with a ball or simple head paint on a mask and hit preview then render.
    look at what it did then move sliders around and see what they do.
    I ended up using many layers, or I should say sub tools. it seems easier to control in smaller sections
    Don't do what I did and not name your sub tools. I spent most of my time looking for a particular subtool because I didn't name the damn things.
    I would use gravity to get the basic direction then try different grooming brushes and for that matter regular brushes.
    I used the move brush a lot.
    Try different materials and rendering methods they all effect the fibemesh greatly.
    Best advice I could give you is just start messing with it.
    hope this is of some help

    Hey Rick.
    Long time no talk.
    Was over at Pixologic today and the boys showed me your thread.
    Can't wait to get in there and start messing around with it.
    Looks like MEGA fun.
    Nice to see you back in the forums, like the Kitty ^_____^

    Rick, I think the model looks great! The fur in particular. What specifically do you not like about it?
