...apologies, for the late response, however seems all the ebots to every thread I was subscribed to decided to fly south for the coming winter. Been a long couple days of playing catch-up with a hamstrung search routine and threads still not sorting by most recent post.
Krissy, beautiful pic there.
Thank you for the suggestions. Looked into the “making of…” a bit more and alas her hair apparently was custom created. Something on the order of 1,500 individual curls were used with over 110,000 hair strands which required development of a new CGI system to handle it all. The hair alone took about three years to create and animate, and they have both top of the line hardware and dedicated software.
For the curliness and fullness Nerissa Hair definitely looks to be the closest though still somewhat more well “groomed” than the actual character’s hair. Also not sure how the body of the curls will handle the lengthening morph as in some hairs I’ve noticed distortion occur when lengthened too far..
