Hi Elliott, This is a great breakdown and very generous in sharing your process and insights, you came a long way from the vending machine days!
Are you planning on releasing the UE4 project to the public? Or only builds? I'd love to play around with it in the editor if possible!
Check out a nice two-part video guide to creating hair in ZBrush by Danny Mac. The artist discussed building the primary forms and using a custom brush to make the hair shine.
What is more, you can get a bonus pack that features the brush discussed in the second part.
The bonus pack includes:
- All tutorials in series
- Hair Brush
- Hair Mesh
- Reference Guide
- free updates
Bonus package is also available half price on his Patreon, but will only be available at the beginning of next month.
