So that would be one vote for the left side, correct?

I need some input please. My captain lost her hair in the current storyline and is currently growing it back. I’m debating between 2 hairstyles. Comments?

David

Neither. Too much hair. Think buzz cut growing out ... can’t do a thing with it until it’s fairly long to style it.
Styling involves cutting it short again.
So very short, either thick or a lot of thin hair ... thick hair can be curled easier, thin hair is straight, doesn’t hold a curl or colour well. Or short and wavy indicating curls may be coming. Possibly reference photos - Demi Moore from her G.I. Jane days.

Eventually the first, but like Patience55 said, a decent skull cap in the interim is a good idea.  Many hair styles (if not all) have a skull cap mat and can be made that buzz cut simply by turning the opacity down on all the other mats…

One can never have too many explosion props.  I bet with a proper displacement map, that would look even better than it does now.

Why grow it back at all?

If she has to grow it back, I like the curly style.  But I agree with the staff sergeant: why does she need to grow it back?

(My own lady has asked me to shave her head tonight; she’s losing hair due to chemo therapy, and doesn’t want to look straggly and patchy.  So for me, it’s not entirely an academic question.)

Are you shaving yours too? Solidarity man!

I’ve lost over thirty people to Cancer in the past six years, but more then that have gone into remission. Keep the faith.

I’ve offered to, so I guess it’s up to her.  grin

Fortunately, this chemo is more a preventative maintenance thing than anything else.  Tumor’s already been removed, and it was completely self-contained within the excised portion.  Lymph nodes were uninvolved.  But this is recommended to prevent it from coming back.  (If it did, it would be the third time.)

I’ve lost some to cancer, too, if not such overwhelming numbers.  Lost my third wife to breast cancer.

Fortunately, by McCoy’s time, there’s a shot for that.  (Bringing the thread back on-topic.  [grin])

If the sphere is high poly then yes a displacement map can be effective ... also could use a transparency map [shades of grey to vary the %].

Why grow hair back? Maybe she’d be confused with the Deltans, could be problem lol ...

Well, being confused for a Deltan could improve her dating life.

Yes and no. There was something about “vows of celibacy” wink

One ‘set’ of insignia badges is basically done. What’s left to do is fix up the textures some, tweak a few settings ...
Works in Poser7 grin D/S3 grin Hexagon grin [should therefore also work in the more recent versions of either Poser or D/S AFAIK]

Not in any particular order ...

OK, getting back to the hair question. Some time has lapsed since when the Captain lost her hair and when we see her again. I would say possibly 1-3 months have passed. I’m leaning more to the one to the left as I think it looks better. Not sure bout the one on the right. So far I have 2 votes for the left not counting my own. Any other votes?
