Hi Guys,

This is our latest work using Hairfarm for a Malaysian communications client. I thought it would be nice to upload as the forums have been a treasure trove of information for us whilst doing this job which has been a great help, so thanks very much!

The original concept was to have a styalised lion holding a cell phone which could then be integrated into a variety of live action plates. As you can appreciate, getting a lion to hold a phone with their anatomy as it is can be somewhat challenging, so some creative calls had to be made along the way to fit the brief.

All of our print work is designed to hold up at 6k+ resolutions so we really tested hairfarm to its limits with this one. This was only our second project with hairfarm and i can honestly say we wouldn't hesitate to use it again.

You can read more about the project on our blog here:

Be sure to check out our website for more project overviews.

Kind regards,

Lead CGI Artist,

Very nice blog post, too. Here is a part of the blog post that I really enjoyed reading:

“Off-the-shelf plug-ins generally doesn’t give you the level of control nor speed needed to produce a realistic look and feel. However, we have recently been using Hairfarm which has changed the way we both model and style hair on our CG characters.”

It is these modelling tools that bring a new approach to styling allowing for quick iterative styling changes, which is great for both the TJ team and our client. Knowles continues, “Its speed and efficiency is unparalleled in comparison to other off the shelf plug-ins. It integrates into our workflow well and allows us all the control needed in compositing/retouch to finesse the final look.

No problem Cem, its testament to the work you have put into the plugin that it is so pipeline friendly.
