New Hair Shader [New Version] by Shastro New Hair Shader [New Version] by Shastro
This is the image my old one should have been, and I think this one fixes most of its problems, and as always I have learned loads and loads about hair shading and styling from all renders that use it, this represents a leap forward I think in most areas. Although its far from perfect, and I already see things to change in the shader and the hair itself, but not enough to warrant a re-render, besides I HAVE BIGGER PLANS!

Made with Blender and Photoshop

Changes since previous version:
-
Changed styling and reduced number of swirls
-Changed shader settings, mix values, and color ramps
-Changed cycles strand render settings (thickness.etc)
-Doubled the resolution

Render Information:
-Took 17 hours 16 minutes at almost 4k res to render on an 2.4 ghz i7 w/ 8 gigs of RAM

Other Information:
-
Old image has been moved to the WIP folder in my gallery

Like I said above this image is in no way perfect, and I'm still in my baby steps in my knowledge of blender, but with every image I learn a little more.

and as always STAY SO FRIGGIN AWESOME!

Alright if you insist :D I'll upload the file so that you can see it, just know that this is outdated information, and not the method I would recommend doing hair nowadays, but maybe you'll learn something from it.

Personally I think I like the hair in this image better : shastro.deviantart.com/art/Che…

Here is the link to the old tutorial: imgur.com/sRdLcnd

Soon enough I plan on making a new tutorial, perhaps in video format, to share all my updated methods from the old tutorial.

Sorry for such a long response time, but that tutorial is no longer available as it needs to be updated

Sometime soon I hope to remake the tutorial in video format.

Ohh, this is really quite nice! I never got the hair in blender to play all that nice, though I haven't tried since blender 2.5 so do anything complicated.

Thanks! Its not too bad, and I find it easier than modeling the hair (which you are very skilled at) With blender's recent update its gotten alot easier and better to make proper hair. 

I need to learn modeling soon :) Thanks again!

Woah, looks amazing! Are you using individual strands or textured planes?
Reply

Shastro Featured By Owner May 24, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Naw All of that is particle systems, I can't imagine using textured planes for something like that. Thanks for the complement!

I think the old version would still look great as wet hair, would just need to be a bit less floofy.
Reply
:iconshastro:
Shastro Featured By Owner May 18, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yeah I thought that as well, but still needed to be much thinner, and for wet hair more clumped together I'll have to try to make a dedicated wet look :)

Thanks for the complement

I need to know how to do hair a bit more. I don't know it well. and I'd kinda like to for grass and stuff.
Reply
:iconshastro:
Shastro Featured By Owner May 17, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Grass and hair are a different cup of tea, but both benefit from knowledge of the other, you'd be surprised how easy (well not easy, but you gain knowledge surprisingly fast) it is, just gotta sit there in blender and experiment with it :)

This is looking hellabetter! The gloss is PERFECT!! Along with the size. I would need to see less colored lights to see if the emissions are too high now or if it's just the lighting. Overall I really want this shader now ;P

Shastro Featured By Owner May 17, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I've already since this image has been made improved the transmission, but its probably just the lighting :)

Thanks again as always for the feedback and positive comment!
