Hair Mesh 02 - Pulled Back Bun - Teaser

« previous entry | next entry »
May. 21st, 2011 | 07:39 pm

I´m practising hair-meshing and just finished another project. I will try to get some decent in-game shots as soon as possible and then I will post it on GoS. It works for teens-elders and has 1336 polys.

Picture:

 
It turned out way better than I thought it would. In the middle of it I honestly felt like giving up. Hair meshing is hard work - I have no idea how Anto (Coolsims), Peggy and NewSea manages to make their meshes so detailed without going insane during the process XD

And while I´m writing I might as well throw out a HUGE thank you to everyone who wished me a happy birthday yesterday. I had a wonderful day. Thank you all so much <3

Looks very nice XD... I hate to say this but I think that bottom piece of hair coming up to the bun? would normally be underneath the upper piece on an actual persons head.

Now that you say it I think you´re right o_o
Next time I give hair-meshing a try I will make sure to study pictures before I start out XD

Maya. I'm pretty sure they make them with maya, and that's why they can't keep the polycount down.

(Happy belated birthday. You're awesome.)

Oh, well that makes sence. I don´t know about any 3D-programs other than Milkshape and Blender and out of those two I only know how to use Milkshape. Now I feel like giving Maya a try..

I'm guessing one pretty much has to import everything as a .obj, just do the planes, fix the surface directions in blender, and do the bones in milkshape... but that's just off my limited understanding of it all.

If you figure it out (now that you're a fancy hair mesher ;) ) you should definitely report your findings!

Just thought I'd let you know, I just ripped apart one of Newsea's meshes, and I found something that might be useful. Instead of using two planes, front face and back face for each hair layer, in some cases, he's actually cheated, using a flattened cylinder. Which gets rid of the need for Blender, and reduces polycount by a hair, as the back side can have fewer polygons than the front, being just barely a three dimensional object. It does make mapping for backfaces a little messy, but it doesn't seem to show...
Does that make sense?

It makes perfect sense. It sounds like it´s worth giving a try (anything that can reduce polygons is worth giving a try XD). Thank you for informing me :]

This looks good, I need more pulled-back hairs.

(And happy belated b-day. You rock.)

Thank you. I confess that I kind of got the inspiration for the hair-style from looking at your pictures so I´m glad you like it :D
