This is a full lenght screen captured video of my workflow to create a realistic groom, it includes eyebrow, eyelashes (done in Xgen Interactive Grooming) and the main hair (done with Xgen Core)
With this method you will learn how to create curves to match the hairstyle you want in the easiest way possible.
I have use a program to record all the keys that I use during all the process so all the shortcuts are shown.
The video is 3 hours and six minutes long, without any cuts, so you wont miss any part of the workflow. It is not narrated.
Maya and particularly Xgen are quite crashy so you will see me constantly saving and making backups of the guides and curves, so I recommend you to do the same. I have decided to leave some Maya crashes to show you how to deal with them.
Feel free to ask me, thank you You will download a .txt file with the hidden youtube video link
