Apparently there was still a relic population back in the '50's!

Fairly certain my father is one of the last to be born. Lol

Looks great, and I'm really curious - how are you accomplishing the hair?  Render individual strands? or multiple image layers using fine masks?

I add the hair in ZBrush as fibremesh. In the beginning I made the strands wider and added a hairmask of several hairs, but you get repetition. Now I just use unmasked hairs, though with as little as possible polys lengthwise. This hair is 20Mb. For curly hair it might triple or worse. If I really go off, I can dubdivide the guys and sculpt a lot of detail in, and add very detailed hair, but for now this is okay.

Nice result, Ulco. One Day (in about 200 years) I'll have to learn zbrush too :)

I'm in the mood now to leave office and run and play on a meadow with butterflies and flowers :)

Nils, ZBrush would be a breeze for you to learn.

;D ;D ;D

I just checked the price... appr. 800,-- bugs? Not this year, Ulco ;D

(Of course I could use the trial version first but 45 days is to short in my eyes or am I wrong?)

Thank you René, 150,-- sounds much better for giving it a try.

I did not know the version variety and the differences between the software versions. But I'll check it.

With regards to 45 day trials, I create a new email account at GMX each month and then download Substance painter. I will buy the software eventually but at the moment I don't use it a lot.I may give Z-Brush a look, but it looks like it would need a good degree of practice to get good usage from it.One more item on my bucket list.
