Troll Hunter VFX - Ringlefinch (Raglefant) Hair Sim Comparison. Hair simulated and rendered using Hair Farm for 3ds Max.
Hair Farm features two methods of modeling hair; guiding hair with grooming splines or modeling as hair mesh. The hair mesh is a completely novel method, where you model hair using the same tools as you use when modeling a polygon object. It is extremely well suited for longer hair. Grooming splines are better suited for shorter hair or fur.
My troll character use a combination of these two methods. Grooming splines are shown as black lines, the hair mesh is yellow.
