Area :: Tutorial :: Mars Police: Hair and Render Breakdown

Recently posted on the AREA:

When Softimage ICE was released, it was clear that any dedicated user who were not afraid of words like ‘multiply vector by matrix’, have been able to develop a hair-styling system, without writing a single line of code. For Mars Police, I’ve created hair using my own free hair system called ‘Kristinka Hair’.

The system utilizes NURBS surfaces for main shapes, and exclusive procedural approach for details. Kristinka means something like “dear Christine” or “little Christine” in several Slavic languages.
