I took this sketch from Jason Barnes and made it my own, stylized and converted it to fit the theme of my short. I am rather concerned about the challenge of Maya hair for this guy's curly locks. I've got experience with ndynamics, but have very little power over hair and fur. The short hairs for the legs and face were sculpted in zbrush. Turns out however, with the use of this brush and particular alpha, I will be able to put fur on my rats without using Maya fur... this is a breakthrough for me.
Still working on a lot of the pieces, but it's coming together.
