Ludovic Lieme shows the process for creating a furry character from scratch, with the help of Ornatrix
Learn to build cute characters with the Ornatrix plug-in
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!
