|Development Diary : Fur rendering|
Experimenting with fur-rendering
After messing around for a bit, ending up with this final (for today, at least) image with 1000, 000, 000 hairs (took about an hour to render a single frame), it's clear that I still need some more practice. But, not bad for about two hours work while sick!
Edit: Come to think about it, it actually looks more like the type of fur you'd find on a seal than the type of fur you'd find on a panda. I wonder why? Perhaps I made the fur too short?

|I think it's because a) the hairs are too short b) the hairs a too close together (space them out a little) and c) the hairs are too similar (some should be noticably longer than others). Then I think it would look more bear-like.|

|The seal isn't really covered with hair on most of it's body (or at least doesn't look like it).|

|Most of the surface on that seal is blubber, so they don't need many hairs.|
