Hi all,
Just dropping a w.i.p here. I am still working on it in free time, but I thought I'd share it here for suggestions.
About her : Yea..she is not Neytiri. She is Zeh'nita, an aspiring model of the Na'vi community. :roll:

Oh wow! super cool! So much detail, great work Anish!

Don't tell me there is sim on all that? : ) and how on Earth did you make those braids! :wall:

Thanks Cem n Lee. :)
I really want to try some sim. But this itself slows my comp a little too much when all layers are turned on. Lets see.
The braid modeling concept is from Christer Bjørklund :

and applied it to hairmesh extrude (through splines).

Nice work, Anish!
I'm wondering if you can improve the lighting a little bit. Especially braids on the right side seem a bit too "flat" to me. May be you can give some sense of depth with dark and brighter areas.

Sure I will try Cem. Lighting is one area I am still not very happy about.
edit: I updated the image with a little change. still not very sure :wall: .

Awesome update Anish, the expressions are lovely! How are you rendering the base head? MR?

If you want I would be happy to lend a hand, or I could atleast send over a base HDR scene for you to try out : )

Great work :ok:

Some crits,
You should try and build a custom hairline layer that fads of into your main hair mesh to have that separate tuning and control over the hairline. Unless you already have ?

Maybe some more frizz layers would help. Since braided hair strands usualy break off as time goes on creating that frizzy look, plus its pretty hard to have all those hair strands braided so neatly.

Thanks Lee..I'd love all help with lighting . :idea:

Thank u Jukkat .. Even i kinda liked it. I love doing facial expression modeling :)

Thanks Mike. I just got lazy when it came this far. Thats a very good example you've posted and its tempting to start on it again. Wil surely work on it. :ok:
