Thanks!

Thanks for sharing that, but I'm mainly looking for how to make hair from scratch. :)

There's always this thread too:-

There's also a paid for tutorial at digital tutors if you were so inclined:-

I definitely find that it is easier to sculpt hair in Zbrush. I wish I could find more hair or groom brushes for Zbrush. I also just installed the 3D-Coat Applink for Zbrush. :)

 

Thanks for the help!

It's easy to sculpt hair in 3D Coat, using the Muscles tool. For long strands like you might see on a female character, you'd want to use the Curves tool to create long flowing clumps, and then turn to the Muscles tool to sculpt progressively smaller and smaller strands/fibers. There is no Hair/Fur utility in 3D Coat, and I personally don't think this is the type of app where it's appropriate to have one. I always thought that feature in ZBrush was rather gimicky...but that's just my view on it. Like rigging, that's a task far better done in a typical 3D app.

 

However, if one doesn't necessarily want to go the uber realistic, millions of hair strands, route, and just sculpt some nice hair pieces in this environment, then it doesn't get any better than using the Muscles tool in 3D Coat.
