Cre­ate stylised Fur For an­i­ma­tion

Lu­dovic Lieme shows the process for cre­at­ing a furry char­ac­ter from scratch, with the help of Or­na­trix

Cre­at­ing a fur char­ac­ter can be easy, but if you want it to be re­ally ap­peal­ing you will have to pay at­ten­tion to de­tail and keep it or­gan­ised.

I will show you the dif­fer­ent steps I went through to cre­ate this lit­tle furry crea­ture. This tu­to­rial will mainly fo­cus on my work­flow for fur cre­ation, like sep­a­rat­ing the model for the fur, map cre­ation in Mari, fur shad­ing, and prepa­ra­tion for the ren­der­ing in V-ray. I will also go through over some im­por­tant steps like ref­er­ence re­search, mod­el­ling and com­posit­ing – how­ever, I will keep that as short as pos­si­ble. For this project, I chose to cre­ate a car­toon­ish hedge­hog be­cause of the char­ac­ter­is­tics that it has – namely two dif­fer­ent types of fur. But I also chose this car­toon style be­cause it’s cute! The work­flow that I’ll show you can also be ap­plied to an­i­mated char­ac­ters, but I will come back to that later.

For those of you who would like to see the project in more de­tail, you can fol­low the video show­ing the fur cre­ation steps. You can also down­load the fi­nal scene with the model, tex­tures maps and ren­der set­tings in V-ray. I hope you’ll en­joy it – let’s get started!
