About This Class

Creating stylised and believable hair in 3D has been traditionally technically and artistically challenging. However since Maya 2018 there is a more artist friendly set of tools to make hair. The XGen Interactive Grooming Tools, make creating and styling hair really simple by using a series of interactive grooming tools that you can use in the Maya viewport.

During this class I'll be showing you:

  • The main concepts of how to make hair in Maya
  • How to stylise hair in XGen using interactive¬†brushes
  • Improve the look of your hair by using Modifiers and textures


By the end of this class you will have the confidence to make hair and groom your own fluffy creatures. Feel free to follow me on Skillshare and social media.
